Releases FALSE FACE on Feb. 18th
Announce Tour Dates
"Destroy the Day" Video Premieres on Bloody-Disgusting
In the electronic world, it's easy to fall into the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" trap, releasing new albums that sound almost the same as the last albums. But for dark electronic band GOD MODULE, they've always managed to sidestep that convention and have consistently unleashed fresh and exciting music without retreading old footsteps and sounds. Their new album FALSE FACE (Metropolis Records; release dateFebruary 18, 2014) is the latest example of how they continue to expand and grow – a full-fledged exploration of spooky dance music fit for midnight dancefloors. "I think each album I release should be its own entity," explains Jasyn Bangert, the man behind God Module. "If it's not, I don't really see the reason in doing it. So I intentionally tried to incorporate new sounds and rhythms into this CD. I think it ended up exposing more of the catchy pop aspects that are always hidden in my music."
An exciting and beat-heavy electronic album, False Face is sinister in tone and theme. Exploring themes ranging from the occult to betrayal and loyalty, sex and death, it's a primal release that melds goth and dark electro with infectious melodies and beats. From opening paean to the death of innocence "A Good Night to Die", to the adrenaline-infused techno of "Nothing But Mine" to the atmospheric fog of "Faith Is Fragile", Bangert's childhood dreams are brought to full-visceral reality as musical nightmares. Taking all the best parts from Electro, Gothic, Industrial and Synthpop clichés and assembling a Frankenstein-esque pastiche, God Module stitches together songs that are as disturbing as they are catchy. The video for the track "Destroy the Day" premieres on Bloody-Disgusting and can be seen here:http://tinyurl.com/bloody-disgusting-god.
A response to the fake people he's encountered in his past, the title track "False Face" is a harsh criticism, a sonic middle finger to certain individuals. "It is basically a big 'f*** you' to people who go out of their way to pretend they are something they are not," Bangert continues. "It's directed at all those fake people who play a part in life instead of being whoever they are for some strange reason. You meet a lot of these people in everyday life but you meet even more in the music industry. There is a long list of people that inspired the song but that is for my own personal use only," he laughs.
False Face will be released on February 18, 2014 via Metropolis Records.
