King Woman, who recently announced the July 30th release of their highly-anticipated sophomore album, Celestial Blues (Relapse Records), have shared a second song, “Psychic Wound”, from the upcoming release.
The video for “Psychic Wound” was directed by Muted Windows.
“‘Psychic Wound’ is about paying the price for eating forbidden fruit,” explains Kris Esfandiari of the riveting track and its visual companion. “When desire turns into obsession it can keep you longer than you intended to stay and nearly destroy your sanity.”
The video arrives as King Woman have confirmed Boy Harsher DJ and Rituals of Mine are among the openers for the outfit’s upcoming Los Angeles, Oakland and New York shows. Saint Vitus has been announced as the venue for the Oct. 15 and 16 performances in Brooklyn.
Celestial Blues was recorded in Oakland, California by GRAMMY-nominated engineer Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Amenra, Oathbreaker). The band is rounded out by drummer Joseph Raygoza and guitar player Peter Arensdorf. Visual collaborations featured in the album packaging and surrounding imagery were created by Nedda Afsari, Collin Fletcher, and Jamie Parkhurst.
