PRE ORDER DETAILS COMING SOON !
Mithras are proud to finally unveil the cover artwork for their upcoming and long awaited 4th album, 'On Strange Loops'. The cover artwork 'Topological Research... Of The Black Square' was painted by Russian surrealist artist Sergey Laisk. Mithras Guitarist/Vocalist Leon Macey comments: "We had a very painful search for cover artwork for the new album over a period of many months, being let down by prospective artists here and there and generally getting frustrated, so when we stumbled on Sergey's artwork in an obscure online gallery we knew instantly that it was without doubt the perfect artwork for the album, given that it visually encapsulates the concept perfectly. It was a great relief that Sergey gave us permission to use it or we'd probably have had to resort to doing our own version of his artwork in crayons or ms paint!"
Mithras are also happy to announce the release date for 'On Strange Loops' will be October 21st 2016, for both digital, CD and vinyl releases. The album is being released by Willowtip Records (USA, Canada, Mexico) and Galactic Records (Europe and everywhere else). Willowtip Records are handling the vinyl release exclusively, which will include three special finishes, one of which will be a splatter effect disc.
