Contagious and corrupting: Industrial/alternative outfit WHITE RING have returned after an eight year absence with new single ‘Leprosy’ – and it’s “steeped in existential dread”.
It’s the first song the band wrote for their upcoming album Gate Of Grief, set to be released on 22nd June via Rocket Girl Records. Talking about ‘Leprosy’, founding member Bryan Kurkimilis explains: “This was the first time we really wanted to start exploring aggression in our music”, and through Adina Viarengo’s decayed, watery vocals and their throbbing industrial beats; the band have achieved aggression incarnate.
Gate Of Grief follows WHITE RING’s benchmark EP, Black Earth That Made Me, which sold out almost instantly eight years ago, earning them a cult following across the globe. One of the most acclaimed proponents of the “Witch House” movement, WHITE RING will continue to bewitch their crowds when touring the UK in May with God Is An Astronaut.
