SXSW Performance * Love For America?(!)

"Conqueror casts 16-bpm doom through a psychedelic-pop lens, resulting in some of the most tuneful, heart wrenching, and - dare we say it - beautiful music of Broadrick's career." - Revolver Magazine

“4.5 out of 5- The First Essential Album of 2007” - Alternative Press

"As has come to be expected from Jesu, Conqueror obliterates everything in its path." - Pitchforkmedia.com

Upon the release of 'Conqueror', and for the first time ever, JESU will be coming to the US, touring the span of the country w/ the monsterous ISIS!

Kicking off the festivities will be a February 20th Record Release performance @ Spaceland in Los Angeles, marking the band's first ever US appearance, and will also feature a quick break, mid-tour, to grace the SXSW Music Conference in Austin, TX w/ their presence.

Justin K. Broadrick triumphantly returns with his second Jesu full-length (the follow-up to last year’s critically acclaimed Silver EP), Conqueror. Out February 20th, courtesy of Hydra Head, and packed with eight gorgeously hypnotic tracks in just over an hour, Conqueror exhales a dreamlike mist of weighty celestial ambience, underwater phantasms and slow-rolling nebulae, fomenting the kind of kaleidoscopic rapture—brimming with lush electronics, dulcet guitar textures, massive riffs, and lavish atmospheric hues—that makes us swear we’re on drugs.
