Mega Bog’s new album ‘End Of Everything’ is out now

Published by Fire Songs and released on Mexican Summer, ‘End of Everything’  is the intrepid seventh album from Mega Bog, a nightmarish experimental pop ensemble led by Erin Elizabeth Birgy.

‘End of Everything’  delivers a hit straight to collective awareness and healing. In 2020, Birgy was surrounded by seemingly endless turmoil: mass death, a burning planet, and a personal reckoning when past traumas met fresh ones. Living in Los Angeles, against the backdrop of horrifying forest fires, she questioned what perspective to use moving forward in such dumbfounded awe. Deciding to seize something tangible, she produced a record that spoke of surrender, of mourning, and support in the face of tumultuous self-reflection. End of Everything is a treacherous expression; at once an apocalyptic end, but also making space for new possibilities.

‘End of Everything’  was recorded with James Krivchenia (Big Thief) who co-produced the record with Birgy and played drums, bringing his rhythmic mastery and wild percussive spirit. Krivchenia also mixed the record and co-engineered it with Phil Hartunian. The album’s fantastical textures and heavy polyphony owe a great deal to synthesizer maestro and pianist Aaron Otheim. Zach Burba, one of the founding members of Mega Bog, plays bass, while Will Segerstrom, Meg Duffy (Hand Habits), and Jackson Macintosh (Drugdealer, TOPS) contribute electric guitars.

‘End of Everything’  is a multifaceted body of work accompanied by ‘The Practice of Hell Ending’, Birgy’s first published collection of poetry. Written alongside the album, ‘The Practice of Hell Ending’ beckons the reader to travel further into the landscapes of Birgy’s inner worlds.

This summer, Birgy will play a handful of shows in the US and UK in support of ‘End of Everything’. Full dates are listed below and tickets are on sale now.
