If gothy, post-punk is your jam, then this next track is just for you. Grave Pleasures announced earlier today that they were releasing their third full-length studio album, titled Plagueboys, later this year via Century Media Records. To celebrate the announcement, they’ve also dropped the album’s first single, “Society of Spectres,” which you can check out below.
Plagueboys is the band’s follow up to their 2017 release Motherblood. As you’ll hear in the track below, “Society of Spectres” has an airy, almost 80s pop sound to it at times. It’s a rolling track that keeps you moving, so long as you keep your feet off the third rail.
Guitarist Juho Vanhanen said the song intentionally delves down into a darker path.
“This song walks down a dark and crooked path that transcends into a nightmarish blood disco layer. That’s the place where all the ghouls gather to celebrate the downfall and feed on the masses.”
Grave Pleasures’ Plagueboys will release on April 21, 2023 via Century Media Records, but you can preorder your copy today.
