Described by The Quietus as “aural equivalent of a world turned to ash”, watch the video for the title track, ‘All That You Love Will Be Eviscerated’, a collaboration with conceptual documentary photographer Richard Mosse and cinematographer Trevor Tweeten: 

All That You Love Will Be Eviscerated is taken from Frost’s latest album, The Centre Cannot Hold was recorded over ten days by Steve Albini in Chicago. 

In collaborating with Albini, Frost chooses a new immediacy and raw directness. As an artist whose command of sound design lies at the heart of his practice, by placing himself primarily in the role of live performer and handing the studio recording process over to Albini, Frost continues pursuit of Theseus’ paradox; the question of whether a ship restored by replacing every single part remains the same ship.
