Khanate’s ‘lost 4th album’ finally released

Khanate’s long-awaited 4th album, Clean Hands Go Foul, will finally see the light of day in December. The tracks were recorded shortly after the band’s final official LP Capture & Release in 2005 and shelved when the seminal avant-doom outfit decided to call it quits. Several formats are planned, including an LP and CD/DVD combo on Hydra Head, picture disc on Trust No One and a Japan-only version on Daymare. Vocalist Alan Dubin, meanwhile, is currently putting the finishing touches to the debut album with his brand new band Gnaw, also featuring Jamie Sykes of Burning Witch/Thorr’s Hammer. The LP will drop in early 2009 via Conspiracy Records.
