about

St. Just Vigilantes debut LP, Pastor of Oaks, Shepherd of Stones, was marked by the pilgrim’s good intent and the steady beat of sweetness it produces: the patient labor of desire, the dream of love only possible in ignorance. With their next offering, Our Books Withstand The Fire, the tone shifts, as the seeker is transformed by the terrible beauty of what was sought.

The album seethes with the convert’s constant fever, with the urgency of the witness. With revelation comes responsibility; the need to tell the tale consumes from within. Holy word and voices that spill down through the years fuel footsteps, masking the ache of hunger and weary bones. The boundary between self and world break down. Time stretches out. But the journey home is always impossible when you’ve been away too long. The mists and hidden places of home start to seep into the visions of the saved.

Drugged and blind you’d still know the way. Even if you make it there they’d never recognize you anyway.

Jacqueline Maybey, New York City - June 16th. 2011

‘Our Books Withstand The Fire’ is the follow up to the Pastor of Oaks, Shepherd of Stones LP and Swans Evangelist 7" released on Static Caravan and Black Maps.
