Deathsomnia announce debut record, You Will Never Find Peace, out on September 3rd via Isolation Records
Darkwave up-and-comers Deathsomnia are a UK/Europe-based three-piece outfit composed of Kadri Sammel (Bedless Bones), Richard Powley (Telepathy) and Bruno Russo, who bring forth a sound that emanates from dystopian punk soundscapes that are enveloped in raw emotion, industrial climactic momentum and live energy. Today, they’ve announced their extraordinary ten-track debut, You Will Never Find Peace, and have unveiled the record’s industrial-tinged first single, “Katabasis”, which features contributions from Kyle Kimball (Nothing, Night Sins). The track showcases the band’s ability to capture a balance between punk guitar rawness and ethereal synth tones. While the song’s title refers to the loss of voluntary movement, the marching drum pattern and pounding rhythm induce a high energy reaction impossible not to dance to. Kimball comments, “When I heard Katabasis I knew I wanted to be a part of it. Deadly serious but danceable with straight to the point lyrics. Deathsomnia made me a fan immediately. Here’s to descending…”
The creative synergy between Deathsomnia’s multi-instrumentalist members and their individual punk, hardcore and electronica backgrounds, are the source for You Will Never Find Peace’s unique dystopian punk and industrial sound and genre-bending originality. Their groovy riffs and crashing percussions draw influences from Wipers, Dead Moon, Health and Godflesh, while the beguiling vocal melodies are dressed with Depeche Mode and Primal Scream undertones. Apart from Kyle Kimball, You Will Never Find Peace will also feature notable collaborations from Gabriel Franco (Unto Others) and a remix by Selofan. Additionally, Mike Sharp (Uniform) plays drums on the record and Dwid Hellion (Integrity) provided the artwork. The album was mastered by Arthur Rizk (Prurient, Power Trip, Code Orange) and produced by Ben Greenberg (Uniform, Cold Cave, Ceremony); the latter describes Deathsomnia’s blending of subtle industrial elements into guitar driven songs as “cyberpunk and a welcomed break from current popular darkwave aesthetic tropes”.
You Will Never Find Peace will be released on September erd via Isolation Records. Physical and digital pre-orders of the record are now available here.
