As part of the Blood Brothers art show at Wootini Gallery in NC, Abe Lincoln Jr. will be releasing Asspanther’s first single, Eucharism!

If you haven't heard of Asspanther, then you haven't heard of artist Abe Lincoln Jr.'s radical and super interesting art project, Fugue State. So pay attention!

Back in 2009, here’s what Abe had to say about Fugue State:

“To those who forgot or to those of you who are new to the concept Id thought I’d do a little refresher course on Fugue State and what I plan on doing with this art project.

Fugue State Records is a fictional “Extreme Music” record label. I will be using the form factor of the humble 7″ record to release singles from the fictional Hardcore and Heavy Metal bands on the Fugue State label roster. These are NOT real 7″ records with music on them, they are Design Objects meant to be displayed with the rest of your Art collection.

I will be laser etching various materials to create the records and the sleeves will be digitally printed. Each release from Fugue State Records will be limited to no more that 10-50 pcs per colorway. Once a colorway is done it will not be released again.

The money raised from the project will be used to cover the costs of printing stickers, tees and record sleeves as well as the laser etching.

In support of these releases I will also be doing other Artist Multiples such as band and label tshirts, gig posters, stickers & zines, all that will be released as the project continues.

My goal with the project is to create a world that has continuity. There will be multiple releases from the bands on the Fugue State label roster. New bands being signed and old bands moving on or breaking up. So the project is meant to be ongoing.

I plan on doing multiple art shows/record releases and putting out new Multiples regularly.”

Wootini Gallery is excited to be the first gallery to carry this very first release on Fugue State Records from¬†Icelandic Black Metal Hellions, Asspanther! (Yes the name is amazing.) The long awaited 7″ single ¬†entitled “Eucharism” b/w “Religeon is Mind Control” will be featured in the Blood Brothers art show opening on March 4th at 7pm. These are limited to 20. One lucky person will find an additional Asspanther sticker in theirs… whoever gets this will win a free silkscreened Asspanther poster (ltd. ed. of 20)!
