New albums FALLOW and ENTITY DRIFT and new single HAINT available now

Stone Breath's Timothy has released two new albums...

FALLOW:


Which consists of sparse folksongs, very much in the vein of Stone Breath. You can find FALLOW on bandcamp - available as a CD or digital.


and ENTITY DRIFT:


Which is instrumental drone, dark ambience, and liminal hum created by Timothy for Strange Familiars Podcast. Available as a CD or digital, find ENTITY DRIFT on bandcamp.


At the same time, Timothy released a new single, HAINT:



Originally available as a 5" lathe cut record - there will be a very limited number of CDs available in the 5" record covers for those who prefer physical releases - otherwise, this single is available as a digital download at bandcamp. There may be one more copy of the lathe cut offered - so if you want the record, keep your eyes peeled on bandcamp or on the Stone Breath facebook page for that. 

We also made woven patches of Timothy's owl-witch design from the cover of HAINT:



Stone Breath will return...

Witch Tree Prophets

Witch Tree Prophets is available to pre order now via Stone Breath bandcamp or Dark Holler Arts.

The first edition CD is only available directly from the band and comes with a 30 page booklet which includes lyrics, illustrations completed specifically for this project, and two essays: one by Stone Breath's Timothy who tells the story of The Witch Tree and one by noted paranormal author, David Weatherly who presents a tale of a tulpa.



A second edition of Witch Tree Prophets without the booklet and in a standard CD jewelcase will be made for general distribution.

Last chance to get The Flight and Fate of the Horsemen box set


January 6, 2016 we released this limited 4 x 3" CDr box set, The Flight and Fate of the Horsemen. As promised, we kept the music exclusive to the box set for one year and one day. On January 7, 2017 we will make this release available for digital download on our bandcamp page. At that time, we will cease to make any further physical copies. We will sell whatever we have on hand, and that will be the end of the physical edition. There's still time to get a copy of the box set! Order from Dark Holler Arts.

This box set was created to help fund the two albums we were working on throughout 2016: CRYPTIDS and WITCH TREE PROPHETS (forthcoming).

Happy holidays and a happy New Year to all.

We are now accepting preorders for CRYPTIDS via the Stone Breath bandcamp or Dark Holler Arts.

There are several options for ordering either the CRYPTIDS CD by itself or in combination with a patch & sticker, the Beyond the Seventh Gate book, and more...

We are very excited about the release of this album. We feel the songs are some of the best we've ever written.

We have finished recording, mixing, and mastering our new album, CRYPTIDS.

The Hidebehind
Trotterhead
Long Lankin
I Know His Name
The Singing Corpse

Far Away the Morning
The Missing

The album will be available soon to pre-order via Stone Breath's bandcamp and Dark Holler Arts.  
The CD edition will come with extra material - including two bonus songs (new recordings of previously released songs which fit the CRYPTIDS theme).

The line-up for this album was: Æ Hoskin, Timothy, and Rod Goelz - with guest appearances by Martyn Bates (Eyeless in Gaza) and Prydwyn.

While we were recording CRYPTIDS, Æ Hoskin and Timothy were also working on a book, Beyond the Seventh Gate. The book and the album cover some similar material and should be released at the same time. We will make packages available for those who wish to order both.


Pre-order information will be posted soon.

new album: CRYPTIDS recording finished! Digital single available now!



We have been writing and recording our new album, CRYPTIDS for many months. The subject matter covers cryptid creatures of all types - mostly those based in Pennsylvania but some ranging from further abroad - as well as some ghosts for good measure.

The lineup this time was Timothy (me), AE Hoskin - who you may remember from Crow Tongue, and Rod Goelz.

Cryptid creatures have been a lifelong fascination of mine. The sightings of such things seem to weave into folklore - it was natural and easy to write folksongs on this subject and I feel like I've written some of my best songs for this record.

As I've been writing the album, I've also been writing a book which covers some of the same topics - though the book is entirely focussed on South Central Pennsylvania (York, Adams, and Lancaster counties to be exact). The book is titled Beyond the Seventh Gate and it will hopefully be published around the same time CRYPTIDS is released.

For now, we are releasing 2 songs from CRYPTIDS as a digital bandcamp-only single.

We wanted to give away a song and have one song for streaming only, but that option isn't available on bandcamp so we've made the single $1.00 - but one of the songs is name-your-price if you just want the one.

You can name your own price at a higher rate too - every bit helps to get the album into production.





Prydwyn and I are working on yet another Stone Breath album which should be released in 2016 as well. More on that later.
