Twilight adds Thurston Moore, joins Century Media

Thurston Moore, of Sonic Youth fame, has joined Blake Judd's (Nachtmystium) black metal band, Twilight. The band, which has released two albums, also features Sanford Parker (Nachtmystium, Minsk), Stavros Giannopolous (The Atlas Moth), Wrest, and Imperial. In a new interview with, Judd revealed that the group recently signed with Century Media Records and will enter the studio in August to record a new album. An excerpt of the interview is as follows:
The 1st Five: This next question goes back to Twilight. I've read that you guys were trying to put together another record. BJ: Yeah. We are. The 1st Five: How is theta process going? At one point there was talk of Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth) might be working on the album. BJ: Yeah. He is in fact. I think we're booking him this week. He's in the band, and going to be on the record. The 1st Five: He's officially in the band? How did you hook up with Thurston Moore for a Twilight album? BJ: We knew Sonic Youth already through their soundman, Jeremy Lemos. He has a band called White/Light and that's how they know him. They toured together. He's also has worked with Rob Lowe from Lichens a lot, so that's how we know these guys. The Sonic Youth folks, whenever they were in town, would always be over at the studio, so I met them on a number of occasions recording over there and Thurston really likes our music and, uh, loves Black Metal. And now that Sonic Youth's broken up, and he's essentially divorced, he's got plenty of time.
