‘Under Your Spell' was released on 9th June by Metropolis Records.
‘Under Your Spell’ is the 7th album by the Birthday Massacre, and with it comes eleven songs that reveal a side of the Canadian band that audiences may not be familiar with. Driven with the band’s signature, unique blend of spiralling synth melodies, walls of guitar and evocative vocals, the new songs range from dark, aggressive anthems to danceable, pretty pop and hit all the bases that audiences have come to expect. However, there is also a rawness to the emotion expressed, an openness and vulnerability that feels new.
One thing that is clearer than ever, however, is the tight bond that exists between the band members and their willingness to explore heartbreak and loss together. With these songs, they have entered the darkness of their most fragile emotions and returned with a cohesive and detailed musical portrait that captures both the anger and hope that exist within a moment in time.
The Birthday Massacre continue to make music that is unique to them, once again managing to create an album that somehow feels so familiar, yet challenges the listener to continue alongside them on their ever-changing, ever-growing journey.
Tove Styrke is set to play a hotly anticipated UK show at Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen on June 12th. The gig – the first since releasing her brand new single ‘Say My Name’ – is presented by The Line Of Best Fit.
She said: "This will be my first show in one and a half years and I’m beyond excited! It’s so great that I get to do this in London. Last time was such a turnout, I really can’t wait to get back. I’ve put together a new band and it sounds better than ever. It’s going to be a mix of old and new material. You’ll love it!”
Tove’s comeback single ‘Say My Name’ has already received critical acclaim from the likes of NME, BBC, Pigeons And Planes and NYLON, and was Radio 1 Greg James’ Tune of the Week last week.
