"A Sense Of Rest" is the third full-length from Seattle-based post-hardcore/noise rock trio GREAT FALLS, featuring within its ranks formers members of Undertow, Nineironspitfire, Kiss It Goodbye, Playing Enemy, and Jesu. Illustrator, designer, musician, instructor, and letterpress printer Demian Johnston spent his formative years playing bass in legendary hardcore band Undertow before moving to guitar to form Nineironspitfire and later join hardcore icons Kiss It Goodbye. When Kiss It Goodbye disbanded, three-fourths of the band resurrected Playing Enemy, with Johnston additionally taking on vocal duties. In 2001, Shane Mehling joined on bass. By 2006, the band had run its course and Mehling and Johnston spent a few years pursuing more experimental noise in a project called Hemingway. Four years later, Hemingway changed its name to GREAT FALLS, recruiting Phil Petrocelli, who had previously played with outfits such as Jesu and Jarboe, on drums.
Boasting eight psalms of restless energy centered on death, family, art, and immortality, the disquieting sounds of "A Sense Of Rest" were recorded and mixed by Scott Evans (Kowloon Walled City, Forn, Ghoul, Minsk) at Red Room in Seattle and Antisleep Audio in Oakland with additional recording by Tad Doyle (Tad, Hog Molly, Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth) at Witch Ape Studios in Seattle, mastered by Carl Saff (Fu Manchu, Rosetta, KEN Mode, Child Bite) at Saff Mastering in Chicago, and come shrouded in the engrossing artwork of alternative comics illustrator Farel Dalrymple.
