Hey everyone! This week we are beyond excited to announce that we're releasing the brand new album from Portland-based Federale on our Death Waltz Originals imprint.
Those of you who picked up our A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night soundtrack will remember Federale, who were highlighted on five tracks dominating both the soundtrack and film. Their brand new album All the Colours of the Dark takes the blueprint of those songs and brings it to a whole new level, adding vocals into their Morricone-esque spaghetti-infused sound, helping create huge anthemic multi layered songs. The title track is also featured in the forthcoming sophomore film from Girl Walks' director Ana Lilly Amipour, The Bad Batch, which we saw last week at Fantastic Fest and completely blew our minds.
All the Colours of the Dark sees its official release on CD, digital and vinyl in November, but we are releasing a limited number of colored vinyl copies this week for fans of the band to get their hands on early.
As always, new music releases go on sale Wednesdays at NOON (CST).
DEATH WALTZ ORIGINALS
Federale - All The Colours of the Dark LP. Pressed on 180 Gram Translucent Red with Solid Red Color-in-Color vinyl and housed inside a 425gsm gatefold sleeve. Contains Digital Download card. $25.
Spearheaded by longtime Brian Jonestown Massacre bassist Collin Hegna, Federale was conceived as an outlet to channel inspiration from 60’s & 70’s European soundtracks, particularly those from Italy made famous by the Spaghetti Western & Giallo genres.
Their fourth album, All the Colours of the Dark, finds Federale entering new territory. Though the new record contains cinematic instrumentals that the band is known for, it also sees Federale expanding its vision to narrative songs in the baritone driven style of heroes Lee Hazelwood, Scott Walker & Nick Cave. Murder, revenge, regret, power and corruption are the lyrical themes of this collection. Artwork by Ryan Overhauser.
