Unearthing is an audio and visual project uniting legendary comic book writer Alan Moore, award-winning photographer Mitch Jenkins and a cast of high-caliber musicians. A bewitching story written and narrated by Moore set against an epic score from musicians including Adam Drucker & Andy Broder (aka Crook&Flail) Mike Patton, Stuart Braithwaite, Zach Hill, Justin Broadrick.
Alan Moore is best known for his groundbreaking graphic novels The Watchmen, V For Vendetta, From Hell and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. These, along with work for 2000 AD and DC Comics, have established him as one of the most influential and important writers in the history of comics. His output has sold in the millions, lead to numerous awards and been adapted for feature films – Moore has even made a cameo appearance in The Simpsons.
The musical score for Unearthing is produced by Crook&Flail, a partnership between Andrew Broder and Adam Drucker. Broder is the multi-instrumentalist behind the band Fog whilst Drucker’s adventures under his Doseone solo guise – and within cLOUDDEAD, Themselves and Subtle – have seen him explore spoken word and the outer reaches of rap. Together the pair have enlisted an impressive array of talented collaborators, including; Stuart Braithwaite of Scottish post-rockers Mogwai, drummer Zach Hill from acclaimed experimental band Hella, the trailblazing and prolific Justin Broadrick of Napalm Death, Godflesh and Jesu and pioneering alt-rock hero and Faith No More frontman Mike Patton.
Unearthing will be released as a deluxe, limited edition box set on 5th July via Lex Records. The box set will come with both CD and heavyweight vinyl formats of the full 2-hour audio of Unearthing and separate EP of instrumental highlights from the score, a copy of Alan Moore’s original script and imagery by photographer and director Mitch Jenkins, who’s also collaborating with Moore on a photo illustrated version of the project.
