We each have our own idea of what it means to live through a period filled with perpetual dread, a slowly burning world, and overwhelming darkness. In the case of Portrayal of Guilt, their tortuous afterlife comes with grief, loss, masochism, suffering, and pain. On CHRISTFUCKER, their second full-length of 2021, Portrayal of Guilt plunges headfirst into unfathomable depths, creating a work of art that’s powerfully unsettling. “We think of it partially in the sense of scoring a horror movie,” guitarist/vocalist Matt King says. “We wanted to create an atmosphere of anxiety and fear.”
The entirety of CHRISTFUCKER is set to unrelenting, nihilistic, howling soundscapes, created by King, drummer James Beveridge, and bassist, Alex Stanfield. Each track tells a story set in the darkest of settings for the listener to interpret and explore.
Along with the upcoming release of Always In Motion, Mini Trees will begin a US tour, which features opening dates for Tasha, Julien Baker, and Thao, on Saturday, September 11. For more tickets and information, visit minitreesband.com.
Connecticut-based up-and-comers, Anxious, have joined the RFC roster. To mark the announcement the exciting young five-piece have shared "Call From You" a compelling new single that offers a perfect introduction to Anxious' world and a taste of what's to come from their impending debut full-length.
Anxious have been steadily gaining momentum with their instantly appealing blend of hardcore grit and classic emo dynamism, and "Call From You" finds the band honing that sound even further.
Recorded by Chris Teti at Silver Bullet Studios, the track bursts from the speakers with an undeniable urgency as vocalist Grady Allen pivots between tuneful harmonies and an aching roar. "Call From You" will be released as a limited edition lyric book 7". The eight page board book packaging contains the 7" and artwork from illustrator Kelly Pousette, and will be a one-time pressing of 500 copies.
The band also have a string of upcoming east coast shows with Nothing and Enumclaw, with more touring and LP news to be announced.
