LA’s In Covert has just premiered their latest offering, »Dead Weight« over at Cvlt Nation. In Covert makes energetic, modern music explores sci-fi and horror themes through a meat grinder fed with gothic tinged punk, doom metal, shoegaze and industrial. Available Tuesday, October 24th via Dune Altar.

“As I listen to their music, I can smell the underbelly of the City of Angels. If they existed in the 90s, I could totally hear »Dead Weight« booming out of the sound system at the LA underground club Powertools!” — Sean Reveron (Cvlt Nation)

In Covert began in 2019 as a musical vehicle for multi-instrumentalist Wes Lopez (La Ghost, Channel), playing shows and releasing singles featuring a rotating cast of players, including a drum machine. In late 2022, the band’s lineup began to solidify with the addition of Oscar Ruvalcaba (The Warlocks, All Your Sisters, La Ghost, Flaamingos) on drums and was complete with the addition of Kris Balocca (Phaeic, Urns & Argyles) on bass and vocals in January 2023, just as the band was entering the studio at Moon Palace Productions in January 2023 to track a set of their most realized songs yet with engineer/mixer Chris King.

Reflecting the influence of artists as disparate as Skinny Puppy, Electric Wizard and The Cure, In Covert’s new single »Dead Weight« perfectly captures the band’s infectious energy and angst. Out October 24th via eclectic LA record label Dune Altar.

“The vocals are honestly perfect, they have that melancholic gothic tone to them but also have a raw edge to them, particularly with the harsher shrieked vocals that back up the primary style. The spacey effects applied to the track both in the instrumentation, electronic elements and the vocals are hugely impactful and elevate the overall listening experience… essential listening for any fans of the genre, and I see a bright future ahead of the band.” — James Sweetlove (Cave Dweller Music)
