"Its been awhile since we last heard from atmospheric post punk rockers Bleakness (members of Amanda Woodward, Exhaustion, Karysun, Chavire), so it is our pleasure to announce that the Lyon, France based band is back with their new album, to be released in June! Today, we're stoked to give you their new single "Dancing with Darkness", the band's new video.
"Dancing With Darkness" is the first extract from Life At A Standstill, Bleakness new full length to be released in June 2022. The song shows the band capacity to evolve and experiment new musical landscapes. Some may say it’s more post-punk, dark-punk or death-rock…
The video of this first extract features live footages from the late 2019 tour with greek post-punk heroes Chain Cult, they were taken by Dino Pavlidis of Chain Cult. The video is dark and energetic, these two words are perfect to describe the mood of this new album.
"Life At A Standstill" is to be released in June 2022 on vinyl by Destructure (France) and Sabotage (Germany). In the United States by à La Carte and FDL. CD version by Bat Cave Production (Poland)." -Idioteq.com
