Ruins Alone (CD)
SKiN GRAFT Records is proud to announce its 100th release, the debut album from RUINS Alone. Originally conceived as a power trio, Japan's RUINS was formed by drummer/vocalist Yoshida Tatsuya in 1985. Countless tours and numerous recordings would follow, and Tzomborgha, released in 2002 by Ipecac Records, would be their last full-length.
In 2005, RUINS unveiled one last song, "Gwodhunqa," for a SKiN GRAFT/Relapse Records co-release. In the summer of that year Yoshida took on the task of performing the music of RUINS solo, with a different guest bass player in each city, embarking on the "Bassist Wanted Tour." From this point on, Yoshida would continue RUINS as a one-man act, touring as RUINS Alone and was chosen by Matt Groening to perform at All Tomorrow's Parties in May 2010. It's been nearly 10 years since the last RUINS album was released. Now, having traveled the world time and time again, refining RUINS for the 21st century, Yoshida is ready to release the debut album from RUINS Alone. These 23 tracks feature all-new compositions as well as new recordings of classic RUINS songs sporting new arrangements.
