Dutch post-everything/dark rock band Gold premiere a music video for »Imposter« which will be released as part of »The Archive Sessions« this Friday through Bandcamp. »Imposter« is an unreleased song from the »Why Aren’t You Laughing?« recordings, which took place at Orgone Studios with Jaime Gomez Arellano (Paradise Lost, Cathedral, Primordial, Hexvessel, Orange Goblin) in the summer of 2018.
The release day of »The Archive Sessions« will be on July 3rd. With this Gold gives you a personal insight in their creative process by giving you access to their most intimate home recordings and demos. It consists of 6 unreleased tracks including »Imposter«.
Not only will it be a digital release on Bandcamp, they will also start pre-sales for a physical 3 LP edition called »Recession« on Friday. »Recession« is a limited edition collection of »The Isolation Sessions«, »The Bedroom Sessions« and »The Archive Sessions« on lavish vinyl.
If there’s one band that truly captures these tumultuous times, it’s Gold. Marrying the understated yet captivating vocals of Milena Eva with tempestuous guitar layers and rhythms, Gold creates the soundtrack to binge-watching the world collapse.
Gold released its debut record »Interbellum« in 2012 on Germany’s cult label Ván Records. No Image followed in 2015 released by Ván Records in Europe and Profound Lore in the USA, and in 2017 Gold released the brooding and hypnotic »Optimist«.
While the latter was unanimously praised as a tour de force in songwriting, atmosphere, and existential innuendo, Gold would definitely break through with their 4th album and Artoffact Records debut »Why Aren’t You Laughing?«.
On each record, the song craft has deepened and widened as Milena Eva’s poetic lyrics and delivery have connected strongly to the depths of the soul. The band as a unit are primal and whirling; full of life, and yet a memento mori.
Recalling the experimentalism of Godspeed You! Black Emperor, the dark and sweet beauty of Kristin Hersh and Throwing Muses, but firmly rooted in a powerful, yet artsy rock vibe, Gold have tapped into something truly unique.
The band’s delicate balance has caught the attention of the likes of Converge, with whom they toured in 2016 and 2017, as well as New Model Army, who invited Gold as support for dates in 2018.
Through relentless touring Gold have manifested their reputation of a mesmerizing live experience. This has gained them a dedicated and open-minded following across scenes and genres.
