Long-running noise duo, Lightning Bolt, recently dropped the forbidden bounty of their long-anticipated new full-length, Fantasy Empire, upon the masses. Released last month, the band's sixth album - and first in six years - is a fresh take from a band intent on pushing themselves musically and sonically while maintaining the aesthetic that has defined not only them, but an entire generation of noisemakers. It marks many firsts, most notably their first recordings made using hi-fi recording equipment at the famed Machines With Magnets, and their first album for Thrill Jockey.
