A Winged Victory For The Sullen is a collaboration between Stars of the Lid members Adam Wiltzie and Dustin O’Halloran.
They will release their self-titled debut album worldwide on September 9, 2011 via Erased Tapes except for North America where it will be released on September 13, 2011 via Kranky.
On May 24th 2007, in Bologna, Italy, Adam was on tour and playing with the late Mark Linkous & his beloved Sparklehorse, on what would be their final european tour. That night Adam invited good friend and colleague Francesco Donadello to see the concert. Francesco's guest this evening was none other than the composer Dustin O'Halloran. Through a strange twist of backstage conversations surrounding passport cache conundrums, and love of italian gastronomy, a curious friendship began that now has brought forth an offspring of harmonic robitussinal compositions for the world to savour.
