There will only be 2000 copies made of the first pressing, and you can pre-order the deluxe three disc digi-wallet with sticker HERE. Today CVLT Nation is honored to be streaming a track from A Plague of Knowing, entitled “On the Eclipse.” Sit back and daydream while Horseback rides with you into oblivion.


“From the beginning, this project has been about personal revelation and the creative processes that lead to a deeper — and broader — understanding of the Self and the world. Horseback has been, and will continue to be, an exploration of the darkest of shadows and the simplest of joys.
Though each of Horseback’s full-lengths has been carefully sculpted into a semblance of unity, the process is never really pure. Where there is purity, there is lack: a poverty of the whole, a void of meaning. The mangled forms on display in this collection are stitches in a larger fabric, however unsightly they may seem. There is no hidden knowledge, only the viral horror of understanding. The flags read ‘Revelation, if it kills us; give us a plague of knowing.'”
