In addition to the synth-laced lead single, ‘Exorcism’, other darkwave bops released include ‘I Am Nothing’, ‘Enough’, and ‘Fear You’. The LP features collaborations with Dave Grohl, Linda Perry, Dave Sitek (TV On The Radio), Peter Murphy (Bauhaus), Danny Lohner (Nine Inch Nails), Ladyhawke and Charo.
Translating the essence of Kat‘s music and the album’s underlying themes of love, loss and loneliness for the live stage will be renowned visual artist Linda Strawberry, known for her work as Smashing Pumpkins’ Creative Director – who also directed the music video for Kat’s second single ‘I Am Nothing’. The on-stage production, designed to be visually dramatic and musically thrilling sees Kat Von D and her band opening the show by commanding the stage with a stark, shadowy black and white colour scheme before returning from an interlude draped in vibrant red, exploding into brilliant color, while in the second half of the show Contortionist Brynn Route keeps the attention high with an hypnotic performance of her acrobatic pole movements. The visuals beautifully pair with the synthwave driven, darkwave laced music to transform each performance into gothic cyberpunk worlds in which fans can lose themselves in during the concert.
