New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Post-punk grunge band Castle Black present their fourth studio EP today, the gods that adored you. Blending the band's signature heavy-hitting post-punk and grunge hooks, along with exploring new sonic elements, the release showcases the bands growth and confidence in finding their stride. Full of powerfully reflective lyrics, the gods that adored you comes as a mirror to society, harking a cry for awareness, and catalyst for action.

the gods that adored you premiered on PureGrain Audio who said the release, "once again highlights the band's female vocal attack and punk/alt-rock blend, a mighty mixture as evidenced by Castle Black's ongoing success and energetic live shows." Kicking off with a powerful punch, the release takes you on a carefully curated sonic journey. The EP is divided into two sections, Part A: Fucked and Part B: Adored - a polarity that was derived from the fourth track "A Cigarette, Saved." Vocalist Leigh Celent shared, "The parts are distinctly different, in terms of the sound of the songs and the feeling, but both fit together to make up the whole of the album." As with the band's previous releases, they carefully crafted the song order, with purposeful trajectory for listeners to experience.

The EP's title also derives from the lyrics of "A Cigarette, Saved." Celent explained its importance, "The actual lyric is "fucked over the gods that adored you." There's a conscious choice to use "that" over "who" to leave a general sense of ambiguity regarding the gods. In addition, the album title is not capitalized. The feeling of the entire album is this lack of capitalization, this lack of a proper format or adherence to illogical norms." Questioning and reflecting on society, the band leaves each track open to interpretation. "Sierra", released as a lead single, was written after Celent read about the plight of women in Sierra Leone, many of whom face domestic and sexual violence on a daily basis, with lack of legal protection or enforcement to bring change. While directly inspired, Celent noted that the track can be applied to a wider scope, as a stand against all forms of violence and injustices in the world.

the gods that adored you was recorded at Behind the Curtains Media studio in Brooklyn, NY, by Michael Abiuso (The Venetia Fair, Kiss Kiss, The Gay Blades). The record's unique division is also further emphasized, as Part A: Fucked was mixed by Michael Abiuso, while legendary engineer and producer Mark Plati (David Bowie, Prince, Spookey Ruben, The Cure) mixed Part B: Adored, with additional production. Mastering was completed by Jamal Ruhe, of West West Side Music. A powerful piece of its own, the album art was completed by painter Sgott Mackenzie.

the gods that adored you is out everywhere today, including Spotify, Bandcamp and Apple Music. Physicals can be purchased direct from the band. In support of the new release, Castle Black will embark on a full summer tour across the midwest and eastern U.S. Driving forward with their heavy hitting hooks, powerful social anthems, and sheer determination, Castle Black work relentlessly to stay at the forefront of the the NYC music scene, earning their place as a must-watch artist.
