The Anteroom is Tom Krell's (aka HTDW) fifth album, arriving after 2016's Care, and Krell's two-track 2018 EP, Land of the Overflowing Urn.

"Nonkilling 6 | Hunger" is the first track to be revealed from the upcoming album, and features a glitchy fusion of lo-fi/hi-fi visuals written and directed by Krell himself alongside Justin Daashuur Hopkins.

Krell's forthcoming record is co-produced by Joel Ford (Ford & Lopatin, Airbird), and will be one continuous piece of psychedelic music broken up into tracks.

Speaking about the new record, Krell explains, “I wrote the record after moving to Los Angeles, which is a crazy and maybe dreadful place, right after the 2016 election, with hell and death gaining ground all around us on every corner of the globe. The Anteroom is testament to a two year period in which I felt myself slipping out of the world and into a cosmic loneliness in which I would eventually be dissolved. In order to give myself a way back, I began to try to understand my station as some kind of anteroom – a space between – a chamber that separates the known and the unknown, stable life from total disintegration.”
