Battleme is thrilled to announce the release of the upcoming record ‚Cult Psychotica‘ out on October 6th via El Camino Media.
The band will also be launching the first single ‚Testament‘ on September 22nd.
Main man Matt Dreniks approach on the album sees him questioning the American psyche in uncertain times, but without overtly political song-writing. Instead, he uses a conceptual landscape – songs built around heroes and losers, misguided truths and theories – to paint a dystopian world.
‚Cult Psychotica‘ is a voice, says Drenik who wrote and recorded the album during the first few months of the 2016 election. The band recorded the ten tracks during a weeklong, and mostly live session at Dreniks own Studio in Portland. The final product is indeed a masterful reaction to the times, a timely reflection on our own busted reality, says Drenik.
Over the course of Battlemes seven-year plus career, Drenik has gained attention for his brand of blues-tinged psych-rock, with Esquire proclaiming, if the Flaming Lips had written an original song for their ‚Dark Side of the Moon‘ live shows, this is what it might’ve sounded like, and Rolling Stone raving about the bands ability to create crescendos with a Smashing Pumpkins style crunch, while Billboard complemented the bands killer Queens of the Stone Age-style groove on 2016s release Habitual Love Songs.
