Sonic Jesus releases debut album ‘Neither Virtue Nor Anger’


Drowned In Sound compared them to Brian Jonestown Massacre, combined with the sonic intensity of A Place To Bury Strangers. Last year, they grasped the attention of Psych Nouveau godfathers The Black Angels, who were enthusiastic of sharing a 10” split single, collecting astonishing reviews and premiering on Consequence Of Sound and Exclaim. Shortly after getting together in 2012, the band from Doganella Del Ninfa, Italy, released their first self-titled EP and almost immediately sold-out, followed by their mind-blowing London live debut at The Shacklewell Arms.

They have a great live reputation, thanks to which they managed to wrap up an almost 30 live dates tour to showcase the record, so far.

While there are a lot of bands reviving a kind of dark, droning nu-psych sound at the moment, there are many reasons why this record stands out. It is uncompromising, primitive, minimal and very personal.

The album will be released on the 16th of April through Fuzz Club Records – If you want to see Sonic Jesus on tour, check out the dates below!
