Humanbeast, “Nightgown”

“Nightgown” is a brilliant glimpse at Humanbeast’s forthcoming new album Venus Ejaculates into the Banquet, out July 16 on Load Records. “Nightgown” is a pop track with a dark side, seemingly stained by bodily fluids, perhaps born in a dungeon. The track begins with a simple arpeggiation that swells into a climax of swirling noisy ecstasy made even more sublime by beautiful looping cries from vocalist Maralie Armstrong. Armstrong has a gorgeous, powerful voice that cannot be denied.

This Providence duo is hitting the road with comrade Russian Tslarlag for a full US tour. If they happen to be coming to a town near you, their live performance is not to be missed. Both Armstrong and her husband, Eli V. Manuscript have a rich history in performance art, and live shows are often known to involve at least a little rope play.

See below for full US tour dates, although a few of these may take a little reconnaissance to find. Stay tuned for additional information as it unfolds at the band's website.
