thisquietarmy is the music project of Montreal-based artist Eric Quach, a pioneer of the Canadian experimental music scene. Revolving around improvised guitar drone and by combining textural & structural elements of ambient/noise, electronic/shoegaze, post-punk/krautrock, black/doom metal, thisquietarmy creates a wide range of dynamic soundscapes which oscillates between repetitive dreamy minimalism, multi-layered noise textures and electronic industrial beats.

Following up the critically acclaimed heavy doom album, "Anthems for Catharsis" (Consouling Sounds, 2015), the post-cold wave "The New Testament" EP (Discolexique, 2016) and the 2-hour+ distorted drone opus "Métamorphose" (Grains of Sand, 2017) - thisquietarmy re-invents himself yet again with his latest full-length album, Democracy for Dust (Midira Records, 2017) by combining a wide array of sci-fi synthwave textures to his signature drone/shoegaze guitar soundscapes. A photo-book w/ flexi-disc about his tour travels entitled "Conqueror: 2009-2017" is also being published through his own label Thisquietarmy Records.

Since 2005, thisquietarmy has put out over 40 releases on more than 25 different labels such as Consouling Sounds, Denovali Records, Aurora Borealis, Alien8 Recordings, Shelter Press & three:four Records. His vast discography also includes collaborations with Aidan Baker (Nadja), Aidan Girt (Godspeed You! Black Emperor), Scott Cortez (loveliescrushing), André Foisy (Locrian), Labirinto, Monarch, Noveller, Syndrome (Amenra), USA Out of Vietnam, Year Of No Light & Yellow6, and has taken part in other projects such as Hypnodrone Ensemble & Destroyalldreamers.

With a large body of work and close to 500 live performances in 35 countries, including performances at esteemed festivals such as Drone Activity in Progress for Red Bull Music Academy (Montreal), Nemo Digital Arts Biennale (France), Incubate Festival (Netherlands), Le Guess Who? (Netherlands), Dunk! Festival (Belgium), Amplifest (Portugal), Denovali Festival (Germany), Drone Celebration (Argentina), Moving Noises (Germany), Suoni Per Il Popolo (Canada) & Zemlika (Latvia).

He also collaborates with Philippe Leonard (16mm film loops, Godspeed You! Black Emperor) as an A/V duo, performing at film festivals such as: Mono No Aware Cinema Arts festival (New York), Filmmaker Festival (Milan) & Analogica Festival (Bolzano).

"....It sounds like your kitchen radio has been possessed by a poltergeist and it's fucking glorious." - Stray Landings
