Ars Moriendi
Release Date: 20/10/2017
Catalogue No.: LP-BTV-105
Record Label: Burnt Toast Vinyl
Format: 12" Vinyl

With no warning, events come crashing into into our lives with unpredictable force. In the early stages of writing the songs for their first album, the musicians in the Collection lost a dear friend to suicide. Processing this tragedy, David Wimbish and his bandmates were indelibly changed; and every song on their debut LP, Ars Moriendi (The Art of Dying) reflects the sorrow they felt, and the renewal of faith that they eventually found.Ranging from 13-18 members depending on the day, the Collection have learned to complement their complex arrangements with moments of emptiness and simplicity allowing each separate instrument to shine through the mix. The full album radiates with bold and excited vocal melodies reminiscent of Typhoon's emotional anthems and incorporates intermittent moments of Sufjan Stevens-esque grandiosity throughout the orchestration
