Black Classical Plenty of a certain sort of mushroom may have been consumed upon parbold hill somewhere near the bottle during the making of this LP. Great stuff! Favorite track: To Him Who Had Been.

Wizards Tell Lies follow up their eponymous debut album (2011) and The Occurrence EP (2012) with their second long player 'The Failed Silence'.

Wizards Tell Lies is in search of calm - setting off on a voyage to places which suggest silence - deep space, the middle of the ocean, a dark forest, dreams - but nature, time and fear play a cruel trick, transforming thata peace into an electrifying din of escalating echoes.

In unchartered waters Wizards Tell Lies is on a solitary journey, visiting lonely yet expansive corners of the universe to find barren glitchy landscapes, communications from another world, dizzying spirals of noise and above all, hope.

Featuring British actor John Guilor and Italian musician Matteo Uggeri (Sparkle In Grey, Meerkat), the eight tracks that comprise 'The Failed Silence' submerge the listener in a dense array of soundscapes and atmospheres - 70's electronic beats collide with off kilter melodic arrangements, while the Wizards stand over proceedings, stopping the silence becoming terminal.
