ADULT. ready new LP, share “Perversions of Humankind,” touring w/ Plack Blague

adult

Detroit coldwave duo ADULT. are back with new album This Behavior which is out September 7 and will be their first for Dais. The record’s creation began with demos written and recorded in “a remote cabin in the woods of Northern Michigan during the dead of winter.” Say the duo of the process:

It’s confounding how often we negate the importance of disconnecting, getting weird, getting lost. Discomfort and joy intertwined. Day to day, theatrical self-presentation set to rest in our frantic social world. Public becomes private, almost too private. Looking out into frozen woods as you deliver your vocals. For who? For what? Taking walks along icy shorelines as you try to overcome writer’s block, as you try to overcome yourself. Not seeing anyone for days and weeks on end. Overwhelming thoughts and feelings come rushing in; anxiety, fear, purpose, banality, futility of task, power structures, power struggles, pointlessness, collapse. You’re faced to face yourself. Your awareness is heightened. You are neither here nor there. You are in a liminal state. As you work in this isolated cabin your windows become mirrors.

The first single is “Perversions of Humankind,” an awesomely icy wall of sound that is a good harbinger for the LP to come. Watch the video below.

ADULT. will be on tour starting in September and most North American dates are with Lincoln, NE’s leather-clad Plack Blague, including two at Brooklyn’s Saint Vitus: 9/14 w/ Wetware and 9/15 with Azar Swan. Tickets for the Vitus shows are on sale now.

All dates are listed, along with This Behavior‘s cover art and tracklist, below.
