Perturbator, who recently announced the May 28 arrival of his new album, Lustful Sacraments (Blood Music), has released a second single from the forthcoming collection, “Dethroned Under a Funeral Haze”.
“One of the slower tracks on the album. It’s about death as the great equalizer,” explained James Kent, a.k.a. Perturbator.
Listen to “Dethroned Under A Funeral Haze” below:
Lustful Sacraments, which was written, performed, produced and mixed by Kent, represents his most mature work to date, merging the dark synthesized tones that brought Perturbator to worldwide prominence with classic post-punk, goth, and heavy techno rhythms. The album deftly weaves Perturbator’s cinematic textures with thundering drums, subtle electronic melodies and in-your-face guitar hooks.
“It’s an album about bad habits, dissatisfaction and addiction,” adds Kent of the album that serves as a follow-up to 2016’s The Uncanny Valley. “An overall look at how we, as a species, lean towards self-destruction.”
