Perturbator announces new album, shares first single and video
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.”

Discussing Lustful Sacraments as a whole – which was written, performed, produced and mixed entirely by Perturbator – the musician teases, “It’s an album about bad habits, dissatisfaction and addiction. An overall look at how we, as a species, lean towards self-destruction.”
