Voltaire’s New Album

Voltaire has a new album that’s slated to come out next week on September 6, 2011 on his Mars Needs Music imprint. The title for his new release is, I kid you not, Riding a Black Unicorn Down the Side of an Erupting Volcano While Drinking from a Chalice Filled with the Laughter of Small Children. Yep that’s the title.

And here’s the artwork for it:

I honestly don’t know if I can handle all the epicness that’s going on in front of me right now. You can listen to excerpts from the new CD here on Voltaire’s website. Check out the video below to get a different sampling of music including a ton of awesome guest artists.
