Brand new 4-track EP, the follow-up to the Mercury Prize nominated 'Channel The Spirits'.

As divisions and conflict became the predominant theme throughout 2016CE, the gospel according to Betamax Killer, Danalogue The Conqueror and King Shabaka went from strength to strength. Theirs is a global and all encompassing church. A celebration. Unity. The reset button. Darkness and light. The party to end all parties. The ghosts of 70s Harlem, via the warehouses of Chicago and Manchester, presided over by Sun Ra. The sound of total planetary destruction, produced with laser- guided accuracy and aimed directly at the dancefloor. Death to the planet. Long live the planet. Following The Prophecy EP and Channel The Spirits (A Mercury Prize Album Of The Year), Death To The Planet is the next chapter, released as the stars align for Interplanetary Record Store Day on April 22 2017CE. 700 vinyl copies for the world, resplendent on limited edition “Comet Fire” orange vinyl with download code. Full digital release to follow in May – exclusively on vinyl until then. Death To The Planet documents a collaborative approach to composition through spontaneous improvisation, mixed and produced by Comet’s Danalogue the Conqueror and Betamax Killer. Boiler Room believe.
