‘Harvest’ Album To Follow in April on Relapse Records Followed By A UK Tour.
Philadelphia post-punk / hardcore quartet Poison Ruïn have released their new single / video ‘Resurrection II’, taken from their new album Härvest, out 14th April via Relapse.The band have also announced EU/UK tour dates, including a slot at Roadburn, dates below.
Philadelphia’s Poison Ruïn first emerged in April of 2020 with their eponymous EP, which was followed shortly by a second eponymous EP the following February, both self-released. While they share a certain affinity for rough-around-the-edges, lo-fidelity stones with their compatriots Devil Master and Sheer Mag, Poison Ruïn want things bleaker. The up-tempo guitar heroics of their first two EPs (which were collectively released as a self-titled LP in February of 2021) have been dragged through the trenches, emerging as a heavy morass of breathless gloom. With Härvest, Poison Ruïn have constructed a richly chilling fable out of modern living. Their tale is as lurid as it is seductive, as much a promising fantasy as it is a dreary portrait of reality itself.
Poison Ruïn’s Relapse debut Härvest was mastered by Arthur Rizk. It sees its release on 14th April alongside the reissue of their eponymous 2021 LP which has established the band as one of punk and the underground’s newest beloved treasures. Poison Ruïn will tour extensively this year. They’ve confirmed several U.S. dates including SXSW, NYC and a hometown PHL release show. In April they head to EU / UK for a full run including a performance at Roadburn.
