Pre-order our limited red splatter vinyl variant of Portrayal of Guilt's upcoming album.

The impossible-to-pigeonhole Portrayal of Guilt already released one of the year's best heavy albums in January with We Are Always Alone (on Closed Casket Activities), and then they followed it last month with a split single with Chat Pile, and now the band have signed to Run For Cover and announced their second full-length of 2021, CHRISTFUCKER, due November 5 via their new label home. "We think of it partially in the sense of scoring a horror movie," guitarist/vocalist Matt King said of the album. "We wanted to create an atmosphere of anxiety and fear." The album was produced by Uniform's Ben Greenberg and it features guest vocals from Touche Amore's Jeremy Bolm (on "Fall From Grace") and Anatomy's Jenna Rose (on "Sadist").

We've teamed up with the band on an exclusive red splatter vinyl variant, which comes with a poster, limited to 300 copies. Pre-order yours before they're gone. They look like this:

Along with the announcement comes lead single "Possession," and as you'd expect from this band, it's all over the place in the best way. It owes as much to venomous black and death metal as it does to gothy post-punk, and it constantly changes shape throughout its three and a half minute running time. Listen and watch the hypnotic visualizer below.

Portrayal of Guilt also have an upcoming tour with Uniform and Body Void, including a show at Brooklyn's Saint Vitus Bar on October 20 (tickets). They also have upcoming dates with Code Orange, Sheer Mag, Soul Glo, For Your Health, Chat Pile, and Bummer. All dates are listed below.

Also available in our store: the debut EP on oxblood & black swirl vinyl from Heavy Heavy Low Low offshoot Bone Cutter (whose Robbie Smith has done art design for Portrayal of Guilt).
