Watch the new video for Death Of The Soul, the nihilistic” lead single from Perturbator’s upcoming fifth album Lustful Sacraments.

French synthwave titan Perturbator (real name James Kent) has announced details of upcoming fifth album Lustful Sacraments.

The record – the follow-up to 2016 full-length The Uncanny Valley – is due out on May 28 via Blood Music, with unsurprisingly ace lead single Death Of The Soul out now (and complete with a shiny video to boot). Of the single, James says, The track takes inspiration from old-school EBM a la DAF or Front 242, Valnoir [Metastazis] has managed to perfectly pair visuals that reflect the nihilistic tone of it.”
