death pose: Announce Debut Album ‘Midnight Society’ + Premiere "Brief Candles" Music Video

death pose, Brutal Panda's new heavy-as-shit punk/hardcore signees out of Chicago, have announced their full-length debut Midnight Societyset for release this October. On their inaugural LP, death pose tear through 13 incendiary tracks of down-tuned punk/post-hardcore influenced noise rock replete with indelible hooks, sharp angular riffage, and a rhythm section that resonates with urgency. The album was produced by Jeff Dean (Alkaline Trio, Braid, The Story So Far, Samiam) at The Echo Mill and mastered by Alan Douches (Converge, Every Time I Die, Thrice, Mastodon, Dillinger Escape Plan) at West West Side. Dark lyrical themes of personal dissociation, political action, religious intolerance, heartbreak, and the human experience are woven throughout, adding a layer of realism and responsibility to their discord. 

The band have also released a music video for the song “Brief Candles” alongside the previously released song “Double Hockey Sticks” HERE. The album is currently available for pre-order at THIS LOCATION and via Bandcamp HERE

death pose have also confirmed a record release show in Chicago on October 20th along with an appearance at this year’s The Fest alongside Strike Anywhere, Death of a Nation and more. An east coast tour will be announced shortly. See below for a complete listing of dates. 

The band commented on the album and new music video:

To say that "Midnight Society" means a lot to us is an understatement and we can't wait for y'all to hear this noise.

"Brief Candles" is about the fleeting nature of our lives and how we choose to spend our time - particularly with those that we love, and the heartbreaking changes in reciprocation that sometimes happen over time. When one decides that perhaps they don't "feel it" anymore, seemingly out of the blue. When they'd rather suddenly abandon the life that they've built with their partner just to chase the next shiny penny bouncing down the road, spraining their ankles along the way.”
