SONIC YOUTH frontman Thurston Moore has reportedly joined TWILIGHT, the black metal supergroup featuring NACHTMYSTIUM mainman Blake Judd.
TWILIGHT‘s current lineup is rounded out by THE ATLAS MOTH‘s Stavros Giannopoulos, producer Sanford Parker, Wrest (a.k.a. Jef Whitehead) from LEVIATHAN and Imperial (a.k.a. Neil Jameson) from KRIEG.
TWILIGHT is scheduled to enter the studio later this month to begin recording a new album for a fall release via Century Media Records.
“I had SONIC YOUTH records when I was 12,” Judd told The 1st Five in an interview. “And to now know that, not only am I having a dialogue with this person about anything, but dude’s gonna join a band I started, and it’s like . . . whoah. Fucking amazing, amazing feeling.”
He added, “I’ve done so much shit, and worked with so many cool people, and I’ll get to work with Thurston. You know Century Media could offer us $100,000 to make that TWILIGHT record and say: ‘Blake, you get ninety percent of that money but Thurston Moore‘s not gonna be on the record, or, you can be on it and we’ll give you 10 grand and that’s what you have to make it work.’ And I would, I would take the 10 grand and work with Thurston. That’s like how much I love SONIC YOUTH.”
