Known from “splintering and reshaping black metal’s more caustic sounds into the tangible furor of hardcore, crust punk and dirty rock and roll”, NC crust punks FUNERAL CHIC are just one week away from the official release of their new LP Superstition (order HERE via Prosthetic Records), and we’re pleased to give you an early listen of their new, ear splintering and thundering track “Fantasy”!
Built on solid foundations of diabolical, soul shattering blackened crust executed with unprecedented precision, “Superstition” introduces a band that feels more comfortable in crafting their a near-psychedelic experience! And it’s certainly an enjoyable play through the filthy blackened waters that FUNERAL CHIC hunts in. Listen below and see for yourself!
“It’s a love song. The album is our statement, take what you want from it.” – Funeral Chic
FUNERAL CHIC is: Robert Stroud; Dustin Carpenter; Alex Psaroudis. Superstition was recorded by Rick Contes at Seven Doors Audio and Mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege. Set for official release on November 16, 2018, the album will be available on all formats including limited vinyl pressings in purple with black haze and rocket red (retail only).
I offer you my pain and all my sins. My depression in my veins. If I’m hated, make it real & let it ride. Let me die for you or get me fucking killed. Put me in a hole, watch me writhe. I belong to you. Unholy matrimony. No elegance or Jesus between us. Don’t step foot on my grave, unless to piss and fucking moan. There’s a home for both of us in Hell to fuck and torture and burn. Heat fantasy, love was never an option. Pain legacy, all that I want. Ride with me forever, ’til the wheels fall off or tie me to the tracks and fucking run. You better run for your fucking life.
FUNERAL CHIC live dates:
3 other songs from the album, “Jump”, “Rotten to the Core” and “Say No”, have been released earlier in October and September. Watch & listen below and order the full record HERE.
Hailing from Charlotte, North Carolina, FUNERAL CHIC first arrived on the scene in 2014 with the release of their heavy handed self-titled EP. The attention grabbing full length release Hatred Swarm, soon followed. Recorded with Rick Contes (Young and in the Way) at Birthwave Studio, it was this release that set FUNERAL CHIC off on a high demand spree of tours with the likes of Joy, Of Feather & Bone, YAITW as well as local shows with Nails, Power Trip, Oathbreaker, Full Of Hell, Homewrecker, Harms Way and Twitching Tongues among many others. Now, after joining the Prosthetic Records roster, FUNERAL CHIC will unleash their most anticipated debut yet and will announce even more tour dates following the release of Superstition.
