*Noctorum <http://noctorum.band>* have announced they will be releasing
their fourth album *’The Afterlife’*
<https://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/noctorum> through *Schoolkids Records*
<https://www.schoolkidsrecords.com/label>*. *This is the duo’s first
long-play in seven years. It will be released exclusively on CD and
gatefold vinyl to *PledgeMusic*
<https://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/noctorum> contributors in November
2018. The general release of this album will happen in February 2019.

Noctorum is guitarist/singer-songwriter *Marty Willso**n-Piper*
<https://martywillson-piper.com> and producer *Dare Mason*
<http://www.viplounge.org.uk/dare/>*. *Named for the village Noctorum,
located near to their childhood homes on The Wirral (near Liverpool), Dare
and Marty liked its association with night and its Latin derivation. This
collaboration has an eclectic focus, making the quiet loud and vice-versa,
singing words that might be spoken and playing indoor instruments that
should be heard outside. It has to be imagined to exist.

Ahead of the album’s release, they present the first single *’A Girl With
No Love’*
Comical in its despair, the song explores the emotions of and options
against physical loneliness in a world where, surrounded with many choices,
people can find themselves not only alone with their thoughts, but with the
incessant pressing pain of nature’s physical needs. In removing complicated
social etiquette, compromise, personality, the perceived trouble involved
and the cost, this one-time expense might adequately satisfy that nature in
a world where communication skills, empathy and love are lost in a lonely
room full of blind sentient beings unable to connect or trust, who are
either doomed or blessed to an eternity of fantasy.

Having formed in 2002, Noctorum released their debut album ‘*Sparks Lane’*
<http://noctorum.band/discography/sparks-lane-2003/> on *Heyday Records *in
2003. In 2006, they followed up with the album *’Offer The Light’*
on that same label, later re-releasing it as a digipak in 2010 via *Second
Motion Records*. Heyday released their third album *’Honey Mink Forever’*
<http://noctorum.band/discography/honey-mink-forever-2011/> in 2011.

*Marty Willson-Pipe**r* has been writing and performing internationally for
over 35 years. He is best known as a long-time member of Australian
psychedelic rock band *The Church*, who he was with from its inception
through to 2013. He joined *All About Eve* in the ’90s, releasing two
studio albums and several live albums with them. He is also lead singer and
lyricist with Swedish band *MOAT* and a touring member of Swedish Prog
legends *Anekdoten*. Since the mid-1980s, Willson-Piper has maintained a
steady solo output, releasing six solo studio albums and three live solo
albums to date. He has also co-written music with many artists,
including *Grace
Slick, Aimee Mann, Susannah Hoffs *and* Linda Perry.*

As a house engineer at London’s world famous Townhouse Studios, Dare Mason
has worked with the likes of *Prince, Paul McCartney, Boy George, Tina
Turner, Ravi Shankar* and *Soul II Soul*, among others. After becoming a
freelance producer/engineer in 1991, he produced albums for *The Grid, The
Church, Placebo *and *AC Acoustics*, working in London, New York, Sydney
and Stockholm. He finally moved to Cornwall, where he set up the *VIP
Lounge* <http://www.viplounge.org.uk> studio in 2001. Nowadays, Dare is
mainly known as a mixing engineer, having mixed recordings by* Brix Smith
