SHLOHMO Unveils video for ‘Buried’
Announces EU tour dates in May- New album ‘Dark Red’ released April 6th On True Panther Sounds/ Wedidit

Shlohmo has said that his forthcoming full-length album, Dark Red, is intended to be “devastating and violent” that “forces you to feel something even if that something isn’t good.” Today, he makes good on his promise with the video for new single “Buried,” depicting a surreal, complicated and bloody nightmare that takes place on the gritty, blacker than black, abandoned and desperate streets of Los Angeles, the artist’s hometown. Directed by Lance Drake, the clip casts a sinister shadow over the circle of life and death, giving a new symbolism to the album’s title, Dark Red.

The second full-length album from Shlohmo (aka Henry Laufer,) Dark Red is an uncanny marriage of his ever-evolving, richly textured sound with shades of ’90s IDM, R&B, cassette-tape Jungle, and, in an unexpected turn, sludge metal. “It sounds like if Electric Wizard tried to make an R&B record,” he says, “or Boards of Canada meets Burzum by the River Styx.”

Dark Red utilizes Shlohmo’s existing palate but also mines the noises and imperfections inherent in analog production and naturally damaged sounds. Side-stepping current trends that lean towards pristine, computer-generated production, Dark Red explores natural distortion, fuzz and noise as compositional tools, intentionally distressing sounds to echo the feeling of the icy menace and emotional charge found on early black metal tapes. The result is a deeply personal listen, Shlohmo’s boldest statement yet.

Dark Red will be released April 7th, 2015 on True Panther/WeDidIt, with pre-orders available on iTunes, Amazon and True Panther. Fans will also be able to see Shlohmo’s first ever fully live tour throughout the Spring in North America as well as across Europe, with all dates below.
