Protomartyr announce new album, share first single 'A Private Understanding'
Detroit's Protomartyr just announced their new album 'Relatives In Descent', to be released September 29th on Domino Records, and co-produced and recorded with Sonny DiPerri (Animal Collective, Dirty Projectors). Watch the video for first single 'A Private Understanding' below.
From the album's biography: "Though not a concept album, it presents twelve variations on a theme: the unknowable nature of truth, and the existential dread that often accompanies that unknowing. This, at a moment when disinformation and garbled newspeak have become a daily reality."
Protomartyr returns to Le Guess Who? this year, as part of the program curated by Basilica Soundscape, which also includes Jenny Hval, Prurient, Greg Fox, Liu Fang and a poetry/spoken word performance by Meredith Graves (Perfect Pussy).
