Finland’s apocalyptic post punks Grave Pleasures (spawned from the internationally acclaimed, Beastmilk) released a new 7" EP Funeral Party this Friday 18th November, via frontman Mat McNerney’s own Secret Trees record label. The 7" was self produced and recorded in Finland, but mastered by John Davis (Savages, Bat For Lashes, Lana Del Rey) in the UK.
Mat McNerney tells us, "We’re surfing the apocalypse again and this time with the reverb button back on. Back to the new old sound and back to a Finnish lineup. Now we’ve returned to the bunkers and are handling some radioactive new material for the next album. The new stuff is a nuclear fusion of our Beastmilk past with Climax and the beast(sic) parts of Grave Pleasures’ Dreamcrash album. This new 7" is a small detonation of that new material and released in an exclusive way, to reward our fans for sticking with us." He continues, "It’s great to be back making another short format release on 7” just like the early days with Beastmilk. To complete your 'end of the world' celebratory package, we have put together a funeral party karaoke video so you can sing along to your doom. An underground uproar with a funeral party beat, we’re definitely dancing with the dead again."
The Funeral Party EP is available on 7" vinyl via www.secret-trees.com, or on digital download from gravepleasures.bandcamp.com. The vinyl version is available in standard black and limited edition (just 200 copies) yellow vinyl, exclusively offered via the Secret Trees own label store.
