Ceremony release the first standalone single of their career


Nedda Afsari

Official press release:

Today Cali's Ceremony release their new 12" - Vanity Spawned By Fear just ahead of their North America Spring 2022 tour. Vanity Spawned By Fear is the legendary, acclaimed punk band's first standalone single of their career: an infectious take on new musick, glam, and moody synth. Vanity Spawned by Fear is available now digitally, and in a limited edition, one-time-only vinyl pressing.

Ceremony guitarist Anthony Anzaldo Jr. comments: "We do our best to keep futility a secret, a cognitive exercise with feeble reward. The Poppy field reminds us that not all things are meant to be altered. In California, Vanity is spawned by fear."

Watch "Vanity Spawned by Fear" (official music video), directed by Ceremony frontman Ross Farrar (in his directorial debut) and Nedda Afsari:

To celebrate the new release, Ceremony are hosting a one-night-only event -this Thursday- at Brain Dead Studios in Los Angeles. They'll be performing live in the theater — a unique set with some never before seen visuals along with a special viewing of the "Vanity" video for the first on the big screen. They'll also be screening Suzan Pitt's landmark, influential cult animated short film, Asparagus.

There will be exclusive Ceremony X Brain Dead merch, as well as a limited Brain Dead-only variant of the new 12" with a hand-numbered, Brain Dead-designed OBI strip. Tickets are on sale now, and capacity is extremely limited.

Vanity Spawned by Fear track listing:

1. Vanity Spawned By Fear
2. California Poppy

Leftist groomers are stoked. There is still no word on whether these groomers are well-dressed or not.

Better than their last album. Nothing has been THAT good since Rohnert Park though.

Can't stand people that still dig this band just the same as they did 15 years ago. This music sucks yet they still play to dumb kids who act like this new stuff is good. At least Gulch checked out early when they knew they didn't wanna write those songs anymore. These guys just keep putting out bullshit
