Occultation Recordings are proud to announce the new Revolutionary Army of the Infant Jesus album, Songs of Yearning. There will also be a limited edition second album entitled Nocturnes on both LP and CD. Preorders are now open and will ship as soon as we get the records. At the time of writing (early May 2020) we still expect to ship all CD orders ahead of official release date (5/6/20) and vinyl shouldn't be too far behind as both LPs are now being pressed.

Songs of Yearning is the fourth RAIJ album and perhaps their most coherent single body of work to date. An enticing combination of eastern religious sounds and iconography, acoustic and electric instrumentation, and lilting, meditative vocals, it features pieces in no fewer than six different languages: Greek, French, English, Latin, a Finnish dialect of Swedish, and Russian.
