After ten years of obscure singles, cassettes and ultra-limited live LPs Five Dolls For An August Moon is the long awaited debut studio album from Norwegian drone-space-freak-psychedelic-noise-out-rock band DEL.

DEL is a trio consisting of Kjell Runar "Killer" Jenssen (Origami Arktika, Kobi, ex-Motorpsycho), Lasse Marhaug (Jazkamer, Nash Kontroll, Testicle Hazard, collaborations with Alan Courtis, Carlos Giffoni, Peter Rehberg) and Per Gisle Galen (Slowburn, The Birds (with Cotton Casino), collaborations with Jojo Hiroshige, Keiji Haino, Makoto Kawabata), but for most recordings and gigs they are joined by various guests. Five Dolls For An August Moon features longtime almost-member Fredrik Ness Sevendal on guitar.

For those who know DEL from their distorted and explosive live performances Five Dolls For An August Moon may come as a surprise, as the band takes on a slightly more subtle and subdued approach. More of a trippy psychedelic space drug hallucination than mangled lo/no-fi splatter-noise-rock meltdown, Five Dolls For An August Moon is a dream of technicolor macabre sliced into 150 grams of virgin vinyl.

As two of DEL's members are former cinema projectionists and all of them are film buffs they have always incorporated film references in their music (often performing live to obscure cinematic gems), and Five Dolls For An August Moon is no exception, its title taken from an early '70s giallo by Italian master of horror Mario Bava, a longtime favorite of the band."
