NEW ALBUM OUT NOW
Optimism Disorder burns with a neurotic post-punk brightness, further influenced by the intensity of early ’80s hardcore fused with an incendiary ’70s goth punk ethos. The album is available now in CD format here, and digital format here. As touched upon with the previously released tracks from Optimism Disorder (“California“, “Last Drop“, “Celexa Blues“, “Desperation Saved Me” and “Hate Yourself“), the album’s 11 tracks illustrate a dynamic and relatable portrait of social hypocrisy, depression, personal anxiety and paranoia inspired by suffocating reality, duplicitous relationships, fluctuating political climate and tragedy.
Optimism Disorder was recorded at Rancho de La Luna in Joshua Tree, California (mostly known for giving birth to the Desert Sessions and recording artists such as Queens of the Stone Age, Iggy Pop, Kyuss, Arctic Monkeys), assorted Los Angeles hide-outs, and engineered in Clermont-Ferrand France.In addition to featuring production from Adam Greenspan (Refused, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Nick Cave), Optimism Disorder also features additional production from Thomas Bellier (Spindrift, Blaak Heat), mixing by Pascal Mondaz in France and mastering by Simon Capony at Basalte Studio. The album also features further engineering by Nic Jodoin (Black Rebel Motorcycle Club) and Jon Russo.Last but very not least, vocalist/guitarist Jesse Hughes of rock n’ roll groundbreakers Eagles Of Death Metal makes his mark on Optimism Disorder via flute contributions.
