The initial launch will be the never-before released vinyl for Lingua Ignota’s debut, ‘Let The Evil Of His Own Lips Cover Him’.
Lingua Ignota (Kristin Hayter), and KW Campol of Vile Creature have teamed up to launch a new Art House, Perpetual Flame Ministries, as well as a multi-date arts festival. Perpetual Flame Ministries will go beyond the typical label dynamics to encompass music, writing, fine art and ephemera that encompass the themes Lingua Ignota has built over time.
The initial release will be the vinyl for Lingua Ignota’s debut, Let The Evil Of His Own Lips Cover Him, which has never been released in a physical format.
Hayter offers: “Perpetual Flame Ministries, based on the title of my song “Perpetual Flame of Centralia,” is about faith, empowerment, destroying to build anew, and survival. As well as self-driven projects and providing a place for me to release interdisciplinary work with complete creative control, we will curate work from artists that feel aligned with this world. For me, this represents a new chapter in my life and hopefully in the lives of my listeners and community — healing, rebuilding, self-determinacy.”
Campol adds: “PFM exists as its own entity, not a label yet still a home for traditional (and untraditional) music releases, not a brand but still a place to get curated & meticulously cultivated ephemera and wearables, not a gallery but absolutely a place to appreciate the many facets and mediums that make up physical art. PFM won’t just be the home to the many artistic endeavors of Kristin, but in time will branch out to create an ecosystem filled with vibrant, like-minded & creator-focused art from a myriad of different artists.”
The three-day music festival that accompanies the launch, will be a multi-disciplinary celebration of the arts at Chicago’s Thalia Hall on April 28-30th. The music portion of the festival will include farewell performances of Lingua Ignota’s current discography, as well as performances from artists such as Moor Mother, HUDE, Midwife, Planning for Burial, Thou, and Vile Creature. Additionally, the fair will host a live fashion presentation by Ashley Rose Couture and an installation of student work curated by Hayter’s undergraduate mentor, Mark Booth. Tickets for the festival go on-sale this Friday, December 9th. Pre-orders for the vinyl start on December 16th. All can be ordered HERE.
