Soft Kill releasing ‘Choke’ on Profound Lore (stream a track ft. Chameleons singer Mark Burgess)
Portland’s Soft Kill have been channeling the original goth era for a few years now, and for their latest release they signed to Profound Lore, a label usually known for metal bands. The new album is called Choke, and it’s due out on November 4 via their new label home.
One of Soft Kill’s influences is surely The Chameleons, who they toured with last year, and that band’s singer Mark Burgess sings guest lead vocals on “On the Inside” off the band’s new album. That of course makes Soft Kill sound even more like the original goth era, but the song also sounds fresh. It’s good stuff, and it premieres right here:
