It’s time to get dark, because we have the first single and video from apocalyptic post-punk group Grave Pleasures’ new album, Motherblood. “Infatuation Overkill” is a dark song that zooms in on themes of control and insanity.
“This song draws first blood, where desire reaches fever pitch,” vocalist Mat McNerney says. “‘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 intrinsic make-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.”
Motherblood will see release on September 29. You can pre-order it here (physical pre-orders go live on 7/29).
