Neurosis released a statement today announcing that the visual projections and imagery that characterised their live show for many years will no longer be used, and with it the departure of visual artist Josh Graham. I’m struggling to imagine what a Neurosis show will look like now without this mainstay. You couldn’t help but be captivated by the intensity in the images of “the human condition” before you, while even more intense sonic pervasions reverberated around the venue. But this is Neurosis after all, evolution is a must. Read the statement from the band below as well as a statement from Graham.
In the spirit of sound,

Statement from Josh: For us all, time for change has come. The friendships and body of work that have spawned from our time together will live on as we move forward. It has been an honor and a privilege to work with Neurosis over the last 12 years. As the crossroads are upon us, and we feel that the pinnacle of our collaborative efforts have been reached; we now look toward our individual futures with support and encouragement. Constant reinvention is at the heart and soul of us all, and we will all continue to persevere. Despite the larger picture winding down as we move on in our own directions, we will continue to work together on specific legacy projects including reissues and possibly more if/when the right projects come up.
