Battleground Records expands the label’s diverse roster once again, welcoming Salt Lake City-based exploratory sludge/math metal trio, The Ditch and the Delta, and is preparing to issue the band’s Hives In Decline debut LP.
Engineered by Andy Patterson of Subrosa, Hives In Decline shows Ditch and the Delta exploring further aspects of sound design, and features a swarm of solos by Gentry Densley (Eagle Twin, Iceburn) on the song “Fuck On Asphalt.” Battleground Records will issue the record on LP and digital formats on May 12th, issuing the album’s track listing and cover artwork, handled by Charles Bougus with layout by Derek Ballard.
