French synthwave trail-blazer Perturbator has delivered a new single, Death Of The Soul, as the first taste of his new full-length album, Lustful Sacraments.

The song is described by the electronic artist, real name James Kent, as “nihilistic”, and takes its inspiration, he says, from “old school EBM a la DAF or Front 242.”

Kent describes Lustful Sacraments as “an album about bad habits, dissatisfaction and addiction. An overall look at how we, as a species, lean towards self-destruction.” The nine-track album is set for release on May 28 via Blood Music. 

Perturbator will tour the UK and Ireland in November:

Nov 05 The Electric Ballroom, London
Nov 06 St Lukes, Glasgow
Nov 07 Academy 2, Manchester
Nov 09 Opium, Dublin
Nov 10 SWX, Bristol

Tickets are on sale now.
