Grave Pleasures reveal debut single, video from upcoming album

Finnish apocalyptic post-punk quintet GRAVE PLEASURES are ready to unveil the first new offering of music from their upcoming sophomore release, \”Motherblood\”, as they present the music video for its debut single, \”Infatuation Overkill\”.

\”This song draws first blood, where desire reaches fever pitch,\” divulges vocalist Mat McNerney, \”Infatuation Overkill is a picture of the current zeitgeist in free-fall. Our voyeurism, our all consuming ego, our absolute fixation with our own image and our descent into a commonly accepted form of mass schizophrenia.  Obsession and omnipresent violent lust have become the norm as mania begins to seep into our intrinsicmake-up. We attempt to portray the feeling of being pulled apart as the volcano erupts on our species and the dawn of man begins to draw to a close.\”

Scheduled for release on September 29 via Century Media Records, \”Motherblood\” features ten menacing hook-laden tracks showcasing their unique ability to combine macabre, mystifying rock influenced by 80\’s UK bands such as Magazine, Echo And The Bunnymen and The Killing Joke (whom they previously toured with) with a more pop-oriented flare, a la early Bowie or Duran Duran.

\”Motherblood\” was recorded at Orgone Studios in the UK with Jaime Gomez Arellano (Ghost, Ulver, Paradise Lost) which was situated on the site of an old WW2 coding bunker and further set the tone for their inspiration from the esoteric underground of England’s hidden reverse to Manchester’s sound of misery.  Featuring guest vocals from David Tibet from Current 93, \”Motherblood\” is a furiously passionate and contemporary record, which re-defines post-punk as a “war-cry for the eternally doomed.”
