New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Noctorum have announced they will be releasing their fourth album 'The Afterlife' through Schoolkids Records. This is the duo's first long-play in seven years. It will be released exclusively on CD and gatefold vinyl to PledgeMusic contributors in November 2018. The general release of this album will happen in February 2019.

Noctorum is guitarist/singer-songwriter Marty Willson-Piper and producer Dare Mason. Named for the village Noctorum, located near to their childhood homes on The Wirral (near Liverpool), Dare and Marty liked its association with night and its Latin derivation. This collaboration has an eclectic focus, making the quiet loud and vice-versa, singing words that might be spoken and playing indoor instruments that should be heard outside. It has to be imagined to exist.

Ahead of the album's release, they present the first single 'A Girl With No Love'. Comical in its despair, the song explores the emotions of and options against physical loneliness in a world where, surrounded with many choices, people can find themselves not only alone with their thoughts, but with the incessant pressing pain of nature's physical needs. In removing complicated social etiquette, compromise, personality, the perceived trouble involved and the cost, this one-time expense might adequately satisfy that nature in a world where communication skills, empathy and love are lost in a lonely room full of blind sentient beings unable to connect or trust, who are either doomed or blessed to an eternity of fantasy.

Having formed in 2002, Noctorum released their debut album 'Sparks Lane' on Heyday Records in 2003. In 2006, they followed up with the album 'Offer The Light' on that same label, later re-releasing it as a digipak in 2010 via Second Motion Records. Heyday released their third album 'Honey Mink Forever' in 2011.

Marty Willson-Piper has been writing and performing internationally for over 35 years. He is best known as a long-time member of Australian psychedelic rock band The Church, who he was with from its inception through to 2013. He joined All About Eve in the '90s, releasing two studio albums and several live albums with them. He is also lead singer and lyricist with Swedish band MOAT and a touring member of Swedish Prog legends Anekdoten. Since the mid-1980s, Willson-Piper has maintained a steady solo output, releasing six solo studio albums and three live solo albums to date. He has also co-written music with many artists, including Grace Slick, Aimee Mann, Susannah Hoffs and Linda Perry.

As a house engineer at London's world famous Townhouse Studios, Dare Mason has worked with the likes of Prince, Paul McCartney, Boy George, Tina Turner, Ravi Shankar and Soul II Soul, among others. After becoming a freelance producer/engineer in 1991, he produced albums for The Grid, The Church, Placebo and AC Acoustics, working in London, New York, Sydney and Stockholm. He finally moved to Cornwall, where he set up the VIP Lounge studio in 2001. Nowadays, Dare is mainly known as a mixing engineer, having mixed recordings by Brix Smith (ex The Fall), Cinerama and Tommy Tokyo. Dare is also a composer, songwriter and accomplished guitarist, singer and dabbler in keyboards, usually contributing musically to the artists he produces.

As of October 24, 'A Girl With No Love' will be available across online stores and streaming platforms. The full album 'The Afterlife' album can already be ordered via PledgeMusic.
