New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Post-punk quartet Klammer are releasing their new album 'You Have Been Processed' on vinyl, CD and digitally through Under Dogz Records. Formed by UK Producer Steve Whitfield (The Cure, The Mission, Terrorvision, Jane Weaver) in 2014, Klammer's sound does thrive in the same ballpark as these particular bands.
Not long ago, the band unveiled their video for 'Spiral Girl', the second single from the album. Earlier, the band introduced us to 'Modern God' - both accompanying videos were directed by Steve Dutton.
Hailing from Leeds, Klammer draws from the members' shared love for all things angular, dark, loud and melodic. Previously described as the love child of XTC and Gang Of Four, Klammer offer an enticing twist on the post-punk attitude, blending in elements of goth rock, punk rock and dark wave, all with dark pop sensibilities. Here you'll find plenty of hooks and a dark and edgy broodiness coursing through their sound.
'You Have Been Processed' will be the band's third album, following up 'Auslane' and 'Klammer', both released two albums via Under Dogz Records, and their debut 7" single 'Everything Depends Upon The King'.
Championed by Steve Lamacq on BBC 6 Music, Klammer's music continues to excite with their dark themes allied to catchy riffs and anthemic choruses. Klammer have been consolidating their position as one of the country's finest live post-punk acts, consistently playing up and down the country, both as a headliner and supporting other notable artists, including The Skids, The Undertones, Richie Ramone, Penetration and The Membranes. They've also played Rebellion Festival several times, including this year, as well as The Great British Alternative festival.
'You Have Been Processed' is available on vinyl and CD as of August 10. It can also be found on Bandcamp and can be ordered via Klammer's own website. The band will hold their album launch gig at Leeds' Brudenell Social Club on August 18 with an October 28 show following at The Windmill Brixton for London Punk Sessions.
