10 years after the release of Assemblage 23's debut album "Contempt" comes "Compass", the sixth album from the one-man project. The album is preceded by a 5-track maxi-single entitled "Spark", which includes 2 exclusive b-sides as well as remixes from Combichrist and Jade Puget of AFI & Blaqk Audio. "Compass" will be available in two formats: a limited, 2-disc version containing an extra 3 new songs, as well as remixes from Burikusu!!! and KMFDM, and a regular, 10-track version. Each version will have its own unique artwork.
Assemblage 23's previous album "Meta" hinted at some change to the band's sound, and "Compass" provides perhaps the most dramatic evolution in style so far. "Compass" was composed with the idea of simply making good, electronic songs without being overly concerned with fitting into specific trappings of genre. Although A23's signature sound is still evident, this time the band takes cues from electro-house, post-punk, and the indie electronics scene.
Glenn Love is an industrial / dark electronic musician living in Toronto Canada, signed to Sonic-X Records. He is currently in studio writing new material.
Glenn’s latest album, Delusion of Reprieve, was released in December 2011 on Sonic-X. The CD was remixed and mastered at TS-Musix Studio in Germany by producer Tommy Steuer and includes three powerful remixes by the German industrial acts Kaos-Frequenz, Novastorm and Intent: Outtake.

A small concert tour in Canada and Europe supported the release. The album has received extensive web radio play and charted for seven months on German radio and Canadian College radio.
