Watch Insect Ark‘s new clip fro the track Skin Walker below!
Comprised of Dana Schechter (M. Gira‘s Angels Of Light, Wrekmeister Harmonies, Zeal & Ardor, Gnaw) and Ashley Spungin (Taurus, Purple Rhinestone Eagle, Negative Queen), Insect Ark’s intensely visual music weaves interludes of fragile beauty with crushing passages of swirling doom, spinning like a backwards fever dream. Marrow Hymns , which was released in February through Profound Lore, is Insect Ark’s first release written and recorded as a duo; it is the follow up to 2015’s critically acclaimed album, Portal/Well.
Prior to their upcoming European journey (dates below, kicking off at the world-renowned Roadburn Festival) , The band will play a special record release show in Brooklyn, New York on April 15th supporting electronic no wave artist Martin Rev (Suicide) and Wolf Eyes.

Formed in late 2011, Insect Ark began in New York City as the one-woman solo project of Dana Schechter. Portland-based drummer and analogue electronics builder Ashley Spungin joined in 2015 during the touring for Portal/Well. Both women have roots firmly in making work with no borders – they are DIY makers, multi-instrumentalists, gearheads, and visual artists.
