New Noise Magazine is pleased to be bringing forth the exclusive premiere of “Dead Churches” by Detractions. This new single is being hyped with a release show, happening Wednesday November 14th. The rock fused atmospheric jam rolls with thunderous riffs and booming vocal melodies. This is a surging tune, which can be heard below.
“‘Dead Churches’ is loosely inspired by the documentary ‘Jesus Camp.’ We got weird with this sludgy and dreamy exploration of religious encounters, memorized hymnals and personal failings.” – Nathan of Detractions
Detractions are Calgary’s communal sweatfest, a pulsing, moving and shaking musical act ready to tear down the walls between audience and artist. Despite early experimentation with punk and surf, the riff heavy and crushingly dark rock and roll that Detractions have evolved into is a testament to wanting to push and expand, to constantly change and adapt. Uncomfortably candid lyrics, whiplash inducing genre changes and leave-it-all-on-the-floor energy all collide into a live show that you cannot miss.
