Spectres share unsettling video for
new single “Dissolve”
Spectres have released a NSFW video for their new song, “Dissolve”, the first track taken from the Bristol band’s new album, which is due out March 2017 on Sonic Cathedral. It is a brave and unsettling statement from a band unafraid to push buttons and boundaries.

The single is out now on streaming services and also as a limited acid tab download, simply printed with the word ‘pain’, echoing the song’s repeated, tormented refrain.
Musically, it is bleak and unrelenting. The band eventually settling into a disconcerting dystopian groove amid sheets of white noise, static and feedback. Despite this, the song has already found its way onto Beats 1 courtesy of Matt Wilkinson and BBC Radio 6 Music, thanks to Tom Ravenscroft.
Spectres play Birthdays in London on March 23 2017.
Praise for previous album Dying (2015):
“Not for the faint-hearted, but there’s definitely something to enjoy in its sheer bloody-mindedness” – Q
“Spectres explore the limits of vicious guitar squall… ‘Dying’ is at once a queasy and exhilarating listen” – Uncut
“The intense Bristolian quartet combine the frenzy of early Sonic Youth with doomy shoegaze atmospherics” – The Times
“Bristol noise-freaks’ debut is a deeply unsettling but utterly compelling listen” – NME
“Spectres clearly didn’t see any barriers when producing this ear-shuddering work of art. If you can’t handle the grinding intensity of it then you’d better go and buy the new Peace album” – London In Stereo
“Spectres are using their music as an aural assault weapon… This is an urgent, cathartic and downright exciting listen” – The 405
“Definitely not for sissies!” – Lauren Laverne, BBC Radio 6 Music
