Sacred Bones is pleased to release Okovi, the new album from ZOLA JESUS. For over a decade, Nika Roza Danilova has been recording music as ZOLA JESUS.

She's been on Sacred Bones Records for most of that time, and Okovi marks her reunion with the label.

Fittingly, the 11 electronics-driven songs on Okovi share musical DNA with her early work on Sacred Bones.

The music was written in pure catharsis, and as a result, the sonics are heavy, dark, and exploratory.

In addition to the contributions of Danilova's longtime live bandmate Alex DeGroot, producer/musician WIFE, cellist/noise-maker Shannon Kennedy from PEDESTRIAN DEPOSIT, and percussionist Ted Byrnes all helped build Okovi's textural universe.

With Okovi, ZOLA JESUS has crafted a profound meditation on loss and reconciliation that stands tall alongside the major works of its genre.

The album peaks of tragedy with great wisdom and clarity. Its songs plumb dark depths, but they reflect light as well.

,This album is a deeply personal snapshot of loss, reconciliation, and a sympathy for the chains that keep us all grounded to the unforgiving laws of nature.

To bring it to life, I decided to enlist the help of Alex DeGroot, who has been the only constant in my live band and helped mix the Stridulum EP back in 2010.

It will be released on Sacred Bones, the closest group of people I'll ever have to blood-bound family." - Zola Jesus
