"Texas-based Illustrations have been quietly molding themselves into one of the most exciting bands in extreme music."
"In the hardcore realm, but their songwriting also pulls in elements of death and black metal, and other sonic nuances that are usually found in the wide-screened post-metal of Neurosis and Cult of Luna... This is a band who can't be bothered with genre expectations."
San Antonio, Texas' Illustrations have revealed newest single "Harrowed End," off the upcoming Acts of God album.
MetalSucks calls the new song "atmospheric, proggy... a fantastic mix, sure to please fans of Junius, The Ocean, and Botch alike."
Out May 26th, Acts of God is a wild-eyed epic, traversing vast sonic ground – from the brutal and blackened to the ambient.

Frontman Matt King names influences that span from At the Gates to Cocteau Twins, and this range is well represented on Acts of God.
A record release show for Acts of God is set for May 27th at Mohawk in Austin, Texas, with The Dillinger Escape Plan:
