With John Darnielle remaining the band's creative hub, and flanked by Peter Hughes and Jon Wurster, The Mountain Goats' final album for 4AD, The Life Of The World To Come was released in 2009. Recorded in three studios across three states (with Brandon Eggleston at Chicago's Electrical Audio; with John Congleton at Sonic Ranch in Tornillo, Texas; and with Scott Solter at Baucom Road in Monroe, North Carolina), the record relies on an immersion in Biblical poetry and imagery, the songs taking their cue from verses that have either informed or inspired them. Much like The Mountain Goats entire oeuvre, it's a record charged of reverence, fear and a not a little sweet, awful desperation.
