Rick Bull describes the LP as "the one where I've had least to prove to anyone."
Rick Bull has used the Deepchild name to craft a wide range of electronic music for labels like Trapez, Future Classic and Thoughtless Music, the latter being home to his most recent full-length, 2012's Neukölln Burning. (He's also produced alongside Thoughtless boss Noah Pred as Concubine—their 2015 self-titled LP was nominated for electronic album of the year at Canada's Juno Awards.) He's been more quietly issuing tracks as Acharné since 2014, when he put out the Doubt EP through Seppuku Records. The project's first album is now confirmed for an April release on that label.
"I think that perhaps this is the album where I've felt I've had least to prove to anyone," Bull says of Innocence And Suburbia, which he began working on in 2015. That year saw him balancing a new, "totally unexpected" relationship with the demands of touring, and he describes the LP as "a diary of this process—scrawled in short, disjointed tone poems."
