Candy announce new album 'Heaven Is Here', premiere lead single


Ian Hurdle / Mason Mercer

Official press release:

Candy announces their highly anticipated new album, Heaven Is Here, due June 24th via Relapse Records. Known as much for their show-stopping live performances as their critically acclaimed brand of hardcore, Candy's forthcoming 10-track project was produced by extreme music powerhouse Arthur Rizk (Power Trip, Black Curse, Prurient) alongside Candy guitarist Michael Quick. Heaven Is Here marks the band's first full-length release with Relapse and showcases their uncanny power to shatter the limits of what is expected of metal, hardcore and punk.

In tandem with the album's announcement, Candy shares the lead single "Human Condition Above Human Opinion" to introduce Heaven Is Here. The entirely digitally-rendered visual for the track was co-directed by Quick and digital artist Nikita Gorshkov whose 3D art masterfully brings the song's dystopian themes to life.

Heaven Is Here proves to be a record where the songs feel like a merciful reprieve from the screeching interludes; a masterful almanac of noise welded together by the unpredictable ways that we hear and reproduce the music we love in the era of unending dopamine hits and virulent technological doom.

Heaven Is Here will follow Candy's celebrated debut album Good To Feel, which features the stand out tracks "Good To Feel" and "Lust For Destruction" and was described by Pitchfork as "loaded with the kind of revolutionary trappings that make you want to hit the streets running." The new project also follows the 2019 singles "Super-Stare" and "Win Free Love."

Heaven Is Here track listing:

01. Human Condition Above Human Opinion
02. Mutilation
03. Heaven Is Here
04. Price Of Utopia
05. Transcend To Wet
06. Hysteric Bliss
07. World Of Shit
08. Fantasy/Greed
09. Kinesthesia
10. Perverse

NorthFromHere 5/3/2022 3:07:30 PM

evil_hero 1 hour ago no. its the poor mans code orange This. Plus Pitchfork loves Candy (P4K hates Code) so I assume they must be political.

anonymous 5/3/2022 3:27:21 PM

^^^ What's Pitchfork's beef with Code Orange?

anonymous 5/3/2022 4:04:10 PM

rick_tocchet 5/4/2022 6:26:57 AM

Yeah this industrial type shit doesnt go over well anymore. Especially when you say you are a 'hardcore' band??? Give it a rest bois. Hang it up and go hang some sheet rock.

anonymous 5/4/2022 8:56:15 AM

What a stupid f*cking band name. Riffs need more variation than 0134 4310 too lol

anonymous 5/4/2022 9:56:38 AM

Blue lives splatter.

anonymous 5/5/2022 10:40:39 AM

^ What's Pitchfork's beef with Code Orange? Probably the same as every other person that isn't deaf and/or blind >> I'm neither deaf nor blind & I don't have beef with them so I'm an outlier. So again what's Pitchfork's beef with them? Afraid to say or talking shit like you do about Emma from Dying Wish?

anonymous 5/8/2022 7:41:28 PM

What the hell was that noise I just listened to. Don't like it at all

turnstile 5/18/2022 8:28:15 PM
