We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of I Hate Sex’s new song “Weird Dream, Conscious Stream” (listen below). The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming album World of Grief, which is scheduled to be released on April 20th through Dog Knights Productions (UK) and Day Crush Recordings (US).
World of Grief is 10-track, 23 minute collection, recorded over three days by Doug Organ (who recently returned from Paris where he trained with Steve Albini) at Edmontone Studio. This is the follow up debut full-length album to I Hate Sex’s popular EP, Circle Thinking, released in 2015.
I Hate Sex vocalist Nicole Boychuk comments on the song:
“‘Weird Dream, Conscious Stream’ was originally recorded on a split we released 2015. We felt that this song fit well on ‘World of Grief,’ so we updated it. ‘Weird Dream, Conscious Stream’ is about astral projecting, reflection on my own thoughts, and being lost in a dream while awake. This is the first single off ‘World of Grief.'”
