Relapse Records signs Raspberry Bulbs

Official press release: New York's Raspberry Bulbs (featuring members of Bone Awl and Rorschach) make their Relapse Records debut with their highly-anticipated new album, Before the Age of Mirrors. Listen to the album's first single "Ultra Vires" on YouTube here: Before the Age of Mirrors is due out February 21, 2020 on CD/LP/CS/digital. Cassette edition covers are handmade, stamped, and signed by band founder M. Del Rio. Physical packages are available for pre-order via Forever defying the conventions of underground music, Raspberry Bulbs continue to push the envelope via their subversive take on occult punk and black metal. Through maniacal lyricism, raw guitar snarls channeled through gritty, four-track recordings, and a wall of distortion, Raspberry Bulbs suffocate the listener every step of the way. Raspberry Bulbs emphasize the volatile, confrontational attitudes of punk with the discordant sounds of lo-fi black metal and inspirational fever dreams found only in weird fiction. In the band's own words, "Equal parts paranoia, anger, and insane humor to satisfy the most cynical minds, Before the Age of Mirrors was crafted for the times where we desperately look for a way forward and we seem, at this dazzling stage, almost prepared to step through the mirror." Before the Age of Mirrors track listing: 01. Spitting From On High 02. They're After Me 03. Interlude 1 04. Missing Teeth 05. Doggerel 06. Interlude II 07. Midnight Line 08. Reclaimed Church 09. Interlude III 10. Ultra Vires 11. Interlude IV 12. Given Over To History
