With the release of Bay Area dark punk act ALARIC‘s self-titled debut full-length nearing release early this October, today Pitchfork Media have unveiled a song from the forthcoming album to the public. The third track from Alaric, the ominous “Your God” showcases some of the prime examples of how ALARIC infuse their Anarcho punk roots with Gothic, post-punk stylings formulaically creating a unique take on these vintage styles.
Featuring former and current members of Noothgrush, Enemies, Cross Stitched Eyes, Dead & Gone, UK Subs and more, ALARICperpetuate classic 80’s dark post-punk elements, with influence from Killing Joke, Rudimentary Peni, Christian Death and Joy Division showing through. The immediately infectious songs and revamped classic/retro nature of the album sets ALARIC‘s sound apart from any other contemporary act under the banner of punk rock.
