Author & Punisher unveiled a second track from the highly-anticipated new album, Krüller, out February 11th via Relapse Records, with today’s release of the drone-drenched love song, “Maiden Star”.

Tristan Shone offered insight into the track, where Phil Sgrosso contributed guitar, and its place on the album: “’Maiden Star’ continues the trudge of escape and survival from ‘Drone Carrying Dread,’ but with a focus on the vital interpersonal conflicts and triumphs that exist in times of war and peace. This track, my personal favorite from the balance of the heavy and the melodic, is deeply personal and painful at the same time. The first note both lifts me up and beats the shit out of me.”

Author & Punisher has announced two rounds of 2022 European tour dates with a pair (so far) of North American performances slated for March: March 6 Los Angeles, CA Resident
March 10 Oakland, CA Elbo Room Jack London
