This year marked the end of an era for Gesaffelstein, who declared that his performance at Coachella 2015 would be his last live show. Then, in July, he directed fans to his website, where a mysterious countdown prompted speculation as to what his next move could be.
Today, the countdown finally hit zero, and it’s revealed that Gesaffelstein has created the soundtrack for a new film, Maryland (also known as Disorder). Here’s the film synopsis, according to IMDB: “Vincent is an ex-soldier with PTSD who is hired to protect the wife and child of a wealthy Lebanese businessman while he’s out of town. Despite the apparent tranquility on Maryland, Vincent perceives an external threat.”
The soundtrack comprises ten Gesaffelstein original compositions along with three cuts from his debut album Aleph, “Conspiracy Origins,” “Wall of Memories” and the title track. Though the film’s not out until the end of the month, the soundtrack is already available for purchase on double-vinyl, with a limited run of 1,000 copies.
While he’s laid his live show to rest for the time being, he’s hopping back into DJ mode for a North American tour. Starting next month, he’ll make his way across the continent for stops in Boston, Brooklyn, Toronto, Denver, Seattle, San Francisco and other cities.
