Pagan Announce Debut Album & UK Record Signing
Melbourne-based blackened rock’n’roll band Pagan are thrilled to announce their debut album Black Wash will be out on July 6 in Australia via EVP Recordings, and in Europe and the UK via freshly inked label Hassle Records. Featuring the new single ‘Death Before Disco’ – the video for which has been released today – and 2017’s belter ‘Imitate Me’ amongst the album’s 11 tracks, Black Wash is available to pre-order now from here.
Watch the video for ‘Death Before Disco’ below.
Pagan’s forthcoming debut album Black Wash is a collection of 11 songs (‘spells’, in Pagan speak) by four people who have each experienced their own individual Hells but walked through the flames together, hand in hand, brought to life by producer Mike Deslandes, in part at Abbotsford’s The Aviary and South Melbourne’s Holes and Corners studios. Together, they pay homage to their punk rock and heavy music ethics (‘Blood Moon’), draw inspiration from the dancefloors of neon-soaked discotheques (‘Year of the Dog’) and back-alley rock and roll clubs of old (‘Silver’), rebelling against the rules and nostalgic romanticism that seem to plague underground music to this day.
