Hieroglyphic Being Announces New Album, We Are Not The First

“When we ask the ooze, the ooze articulates.”

To celebrate a new album coming October 30, Hieroglyphic Being put out a new track today: "Civilization That Is Dying." The song is credited to Hieroglyphic and the J.I.T.U. Ahn-Sahm-Buhl. It's the second number on We Are Not The First, and one of many with a grand, sweeping title. It makes sense, then, that the album's press materials suggest a project which reaches beyond music towards a deeper historical meaning: "Hieroglyphic Being & J.I.T.U. Ahn-Sahm-Bul develop consciousness from primordial ooze. As in listening, the ooze intones an echo of our deep past, rendering the present ever focused. We Are Not The First is an 11-part Epic and each track is a movement therein that testifies: an ensemble’s vitality lives in its collectivity. When we ask the ooze, the ooze articulates: We Are Not The First." Check out the full tracklist below.
