Melbourne-based blackened rock’n’roll band PAGAN have unleashed their new single ‘Death Before Disco’ together with the announcement of their single launch (a party aptly titled the Holy Communion) going down in Melbourne on April 20.
Premiered on triple j's Home & Hosed last night ‘Death Before Disco’ is the first single in 12 months from Victoria’s resident occultists, and the first cut from their to-be-announced debut album due out this year on newly inked label EVP Recordings.
To celebrate the release of ‘Death Before Disco’, PAGAN are doing what they do best – putting on a party. They’ll be taking over the Northcote Social Club on Saturday April 20 for The Holy Communion with their friends Ferla, who make smooth, solitary sad-bangers that could just as easily soundtrack a solo walk home as it could a slow-dance, indie-garage-pop band LOOBS, Lost Talk, 4 piece garage/punk/pop/whatever-else-inspires-them-that-day band Bad Batch, and Hayley Mary from The Jezebels – your Holy Communion resident DJ who will soundtrack all of your slow dance and body-of-Christ-ingesting needs. This will be Pagan’s first ever headline show in their hometown of Melbourne and to celebrate the occasion we’re asking all guests of this Holy Communion to please wear white.
