THE KILLING WORDS
New album Ballads Dirges Serenades
Ballads Dirges Serenades is the third album by The Killing Words, out on Broken Stone Records / Remote Control this Friday 21st November.
Recorded over three nights in January 2014, Ballads Dirges Serenades is a collection of songs for the road, songs of change, dreamscapes, and songs of death and revival. Taking the dark, brooding aesthetic of Abstractions and Dreams, and stripping it back even further, Ballads Dirges Serenades is the band at it’s starkest.
The Killing Words, for this incarnation is Johnny Dance alone on all instruments and solo vocals and single, ‘The Yazoo City Blues’, was penned after a visitation by Nick Cave in a dream.
The album will be available on iTunes and your favourite streaming services. A limited edition of 250 180g vinyl is available from thekillingwords.bandcamp.com
