Richmond, VA-based “noisy Shoegaze” band Twin Drugs recently announced their self-Produced sophomore album, In Now Less Than Ever, taking their brand of maximalist Shoegaze in a “more brooding, introspective direction”. Their work combines Shoegaze and Noise Rock approaches and their upcoming album also uses found audio extracts to create a hallucinogenic atmosphere. It will arrive October 1st, 2022 and you can pre-save their first single, “Dust Worship”, out July 12th, here.
Main songwriter Blake Melton (guitars & vocals) says:
Being a prepper is normal these days. Covid is just one grain of sand in the hourglass of general existential anxiety.
Some of the things he is referring to include “the increasing complexity and ambiguity of our lives in an age of mass-deception, proxy wars and global panic”.
Inspired by cosmic horror and the archival footage compilations of British documentary filmmaker Adam Curtis, Melton, together with bandmates Alex Wilson (drums, live-electronics) and Christian Monroe (bass), creates the band’s own image of a world in decay.
In Now Less Than Ever was mastered by Cult of Luna’s Magnus Lindberg and has cover art by Christopher Royal King (Symbol, ex-This Will Destroy You).
