Cardiff music scene stalwarts ‘Threatmantics’ have announced that there will be a brand new album coming our way later this month. The band also announced that a launch gig at Cardiff’s Clwb Ifor Bach will take place on the 22nd of February to support the release. The band shared brand new single ‘First Things’ to kick off the campaign.
Entitled ‘Shadow On Your Heart’, this will be the third album from maverick Welsh art-rock misfits, and was recorded in Paris and Cardiff by French producer Anne-Sophie Ouvrier. It is their first album to be released on 12” vinyl, with a limited edition, numbered run of hand printed covers by acclaimed Welsh artist John Abell.
‘Shadow On Your Heart’ will be released via Ffatbyrg Records on 22.02.19.
Threatmantics attempt to crowbar as much into rock and roll as possible. Veering wildly from heartbroken folk, to balls-out rock, to spine-crushing metal, to good-time pop; barely held together by very fine thread and pretty ribbons, they play music that sounds as much like the band they wish they were as possible. Whether they will survive the pits and troughs remains to be seen, but it’s a special thing to be able to soundtrack your own adventure.
