Dear friends of Bleak,

Bleak is very happy to announce its latest release, “This Is Not Your Shape“, a new studio album by Cultural Amnesia, infact the first one in 28 years from a pioneer band from the early 80s UK cassette culture!
Available in various formats, and including the lyrics booklet “Verbose Logging” and an extra video of “Contains” (the first video in CA’s career), it is not only an item for fans, who have been waiting for new material for quite a while, but also for interested listeners of Avantgarde music with a touch of Industrial and Experimental.

We have created a special mini site which contains all the information about the release:

At the mini site, you can stream, download and find more details about the 9 tracks on the album.

Bleak is very proud of the fact that Cultural Amnesia have decided to work with us, so this is a very special release for us.

Other releases news:
PURE will be releasing a 3-track EP on Bleak in the very next days. Pure has been creating electronic music under different monikers since 1992, having releases on Mego, Cronica, Staalplaat and Praxis amongst others.
