Artist: DEAD LIGHTS

Album title: Dead Lights

Format: CD / 2LP / Digital download

Record label: Cold Transmission Music

Distribution: Audioglobe

Release date: 14 May 2021

“Pitch black, gothic 21st century industrial electro.
Like Nitzer Ebb jamming with The Prodigy at a graveyard fetish party!”

After their two well-received debut EPs in 2020 (‘Death Pop’ and ‘Hex’), the enigmatic duo now presents their highly anticipated eponymous debut album.

The album showcases DEAD LIGHTS’ visceral and sleazy hybrid of hard hitting dance beats, monumental synth bass lines and catchy vocals in 9 brand new songs. Far away from the creative wasteland of retro synthpop, or the boring machismo of metal-infused industrial, the androgynous duo creates raw art that disrupts gender and genre, offering high energy, dark electronic songs with killer grooves that cross the borders between dancefloor TDM and electropop. Imagine the gritty sounds of Gesaffelstein or Schwefelgelb on one hand, and the dance energy of The Chemical Brothers and The Prodigy on the other. Locked together in industrial popsongs destined to fill dancefloors in a dystopian world.

"A visceral rush of sensual intrigue and dangerous excitement
that propels you straight to a dark, tranced-out dance floor dystopia."

DEAD LIGHTS was founded at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, forcing the international duo to work on all their output from a distance. Due to their country's respective lockdown regulations, Saul and Richard have never met in person, yet managed to write and produce 15 tracks, release 2 EP’s and an album, create 4 videos as well as the artwork and band photos.
