Official press release: Profound Lore Records is thrilled to announce the impending release of the ambitious second album from New York City-based Psalm Zero, as the band and label prepare the album for a Summer 2016 street date. With their sophomore album Stranger To Violence, Psalm Zero takes the aesthetics, poetics, and spirit established with their 2014-released The Drain debut, and blows those elements up into an epic work of wide-screen drama. After two years of anticipation built by the gradual episodic release of the Birthright Trilogy of video/cassette singles, as well as a series of personnel shifts, the Queens, New York-based outfit led by songwriter/vocalist/producer Charlie Looker finally delivers the next installment of a wholly unique vision of heavy music. Pummeling drum machine, lush swirling synths, razor-sharp guitar (courtesy of former member Andrew Hock), and grinding bass, all provide the dramatic backdrop for Looker's crooning baritone voice. Comparisons as diverse as Godflesh, Katatonia, and Depeche Mode have all been used in attempts to describe Psalm Zero's completely singular brand of art-metal. A monolithic, cinematic, start-to-finish musical experience with immense crossover potential, which blurs genre boundaries at every turn, as demented as it is socially relevant, Stranger To Violence promises to bring together fans from across multiple different scenes and orientations, and further proves that there is truly nothing out there like Psalm Zero. Stranger To Violence will see release through Profound Lore on July 15th, 2016. The cover art created by Zev Deans and the track listing have been issued, with audio samples, an official video, live dates, and more to be posted shortly. Stranger To Violence track listing: 1. Stranger To Violence 2. Pay Tomorrow 3. Real Rain 4. Not Guilty 5. Stolen By Night 6. White Psyche 7. Oblivion's Eye
