LINGUA IGNOTA ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM SINNER GET READY FOR AUGUST 6TH ON SARGENT HOUSE

WATCH THE STUNNING VIDEO FOR FIRST SINGLE “PENNSYLVANIA FURNACE” 

Kristin Hayter, the classically trained multi-instrumentalist, performance artist, and vocalist known as Lingua Ignota has announced her Sargent House debut, SINNER GET READY arriving August 6th. The follow up to her critically acclaimed break out CALIGULA, SINNER GET READY is an unsettling portrait of devotion and betrayal, judgement and consequence, set in the derelict landscape of rural Pennsylvania, a neglected region deeply embedded with a particularly god fearing brand of Christianity, and where Hayter was living during the album’s inception.

Watch the video for “PENNSYLVANIA FURNACE” incredibly it was all directed, shot, and edited by Hayter herself using remarkable imagery and the landscapes of rural Pennsylvania. The song reflects on the inevitability of God’s judgment, evoking the legend of an 18th-century ironmaster whose dogs return to drag him down to hell after he throws them all into his furnace in a rage. 

A harrowing journey from the first piano note to the first lyric, the elongated vocal melodies and the theatrical atmosphere- within the arrangement and mirrored within the film. This is a truly stunning ensemble from a visionary artist exuding endless emotional influence, Lingua Ignota ignites this haunting appeal within her direct lyrical course and sublime and unique vocal range.

PENNSYLVANIA FURNACE” captures that integral appeal of this alluring artist, showcasing the most expressive lyrics and this agonising emotive intensity emitting from the far reaching notes and tender tones. The ambiance covers this impressive wealth of affection, there is simply no way that Lingua Ignota can’t move you, the listener. The new arrangement will leave such an impression on its audience, a gripping and intimate journey.

With SINNER GET READY Hayter continues to build on the mythology she has created with CALIGULA and ALL BITCHES DIE but renegotiates and dismantles her own aesthetic language. She abandons any previous industrial grandeur and multi-genre approach, instead focusing on creating dissonance with traditional instruments of the Appalachian region. SINNER GET READY was created with Hayter’s primary collaborator, producer, and engineer Seth Manchester at Machines With Magnets in Rhode Island, with additional arrangements and performances from multi-instrumentalist and composer Ryan Seaton, and banjo-playing from J. Mamana.  

A graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago with an MFA in Literary Art from Brown University much of Hayter’s work is centralised around abuse.  A survivor of domestic abuse for much of her life, her music seeks to explore the survivor hood of abuse through the vantage point of rage and despair in lieu of common approaches she views as “enforced patriarchal models of civilized femininity”. Her past works have received praise from Pitchfork, Noisey, The Quietus among others. Her cover of the song Jolene was the inspiration behind designer Sébastien Meunier’s 2019 spring collection for Ann Demeulemeester who named the collection after it.
