Sumerian Records is set to release their album, Florence + The Sphinx: Sumerian Ceremonials – A Tribute to Florence + The Machine on May 13, 2014. Sumerian Records founder Ash Avildsen explains more about the tribute album by saying,

To me, Ceremonials by Florence + The Machine is one of the most timeless records to come out in years. The distinctive vocals and melodies, the orchestration and instrumentation, the production, the mood and the lyrics have made me enamored with the album. It is also one of the heaviest records in years to me… Not in the sense of metal and aggressive vocals/guitars/drums, but in how the songs make you feel. The emotional conviction that Florence Welch gives in her delivery combined with the brilliance of Isabella “Machine” Summers and the production of Paul Epworth has made for one of my favorite albums of all time. I wanted to give Sumerian Bands the platform to re-invent these songs and to hopefully bring great music to new ears all over the world who may have otherwise never experienced this album. We made and exception and included one older song from Florence’s previous record Lungs, which Stick to Your Guns did an incredible job with.. I hope you enjoy Sumerian Ceremonials and the original Ceremonials as much as I have. Thank you for taking the time to check it out.”

The album includes the following track list:

  1. Periphery – Only If For A Night
  2. Stick To Your Guns – Dog Days Are Over
  3. Ben Bruce (Asking Alexandria) – Shake It Out
  4. Darkest Hour – Spectrum

  6. Fever Dreamer – Leave My Body

  9. Upon A Burning Body – Lover To Lover
  10. Mike Semesky (Intervals / formerly The HAARP Machine) featuring Aleka Farha – Heartlines
  11. Dead Letter Circus – Remain Nameless
  12. City In The Sea – All This and Heaven Too
