    Throbbing Gristle to Release First New Album in 25 Years - Industrial rock pioneers reunite for <I>Part Two - The Endless Not</I>.

    Formed in 1975 and disbanded after just a handful albums in 1981, the British avant-garde band Throbbing Gristle left behind an infamous reputation for testing the limits of music, and created the blueprint for industrial music—although most industrial bands were never willing to follow TG's path into pure, ear-shredding noise experimentation. This is the band, after all, that reissued one of its own albums played entirely backwards, and was dubbed "the wreckers of civilization" by a horrified Member of Parliament.

    Now, the band's four original members—Chris Carter, Peter Christopherson, Genesis P. Orridge, and Cosey Fanni Tutti—are set to release their first studio album in over 25 years, Part Two - The Endless Not on Mute Records on April 3rd.

    Part Two - The Endless Not is the band's first new album since 1980's Heathen Earth. A special limited-edition version of the CD will include one of a series of four different "TG Totemic Gifts" in either copper, bone, rubber, or wood, handmade under Peter Christopherson's supervision.

    The tracklist is as follows:

    Vow of Silence
    Rabbit Snare
    Almost A Kiss
    Greasy Spoon
    Lyre Liar
    Above The Below
    Endless Not
    The Worm Waits Its Turn
    After The Fall
