Kiran Sande's label will release Privacy, the American band's next album, in November.
Originally the solo project of American artist Marco del Rio (who was otherwise known as part of US black metal band Bone Awl, now on hiatus), Raspberry Bulbs represented more of a turn towards punk and hardcore influences. Becoming a band for their second album, last year's Deformed Worship, the release also marked a sonic departure for Blackest Ever Black.
Privacy, the Bulbs' third full-length and second for Blackest Ever Black, is described in a press release as "more developed and far-reaching" than Deformed Worship. Though the same rudimentary four-track recording methods were used as in the past, the LP is also embellished with "eerie electronic miniatures." Inspired by "weird fiction" like HP Lovecraft, Privacy is "a defence of the anti-social, the secretive and the inward-looking." Check out "Light Surrounds Me" below.
