The deeply influential SALEM have finally released their long-anticipated second full length album, Fires In Heaven, digitally and as a limited LP available for pre-order now. Fires In Heaven brings a compelling progression to the classic sound SALEM pioneered. "There has always been a lot of surrender in our music," the band state. "People tend to pick up on the negative aspects, and in the past, that was what we were going through. But surrender has always been the core element." Now consisting of Jack Donoghue and John Holland, early sessions took place at a cabin in Northern Michigan, with the bulk of the album being recorded on the Gulf Coast of Louisiana. The album was completed with Henry Laufer (Shlohmo) in Los Angeles, and mastered by the legendary Mike Dean.Occupying a liminal space between connection and isolation, indulgence and sobriety, Fires In Heaven represents the culmination of a long term recording process, a talisman of and testament to Jack and John's creative partnership and enduring friendship.
