New York City-based avant/prog-metal act TIME OF ORCHIDS will release their new album, "Sarcast While", on April 26 via Tzadik Records. According to an official press release, "TIME OF ORCHIDS blurs the line between metal, classical and industrial with stunning technical prowess and this new CD is their most ambitious work to date — a powerful suite exploring complex harmonies and chaotic textures with remarkable intensity and ghostlike beauty. Featuring the remarkable Julee Cruise from 'Twin Peaks' on guest vocals, 'Sarcast While' is an avant-rock masterpiece. Haunting synths, manic shrieks and jagged guitar/bass/drums interplay from a young band pioneering a complex and vibrant new rock sound." Audio samples from the CD can be heard at MySpace.com.TIME OF ORCHIDS had previously released two full-length albums (2001's "Melonwhisper" and 2003's "Much Too Much Fun") and a four-song EP ("Early As Seen In Pace").
