April 30, 2021 — Dark electronic master Perturbator, aka James Kent, has released the new single “Excess” ( from his highly-anticipated new full-length album, Lustful Sacraments, out May 28 via Blood Music.

Kent commented on the track “’Excess’ is the first track I made for Lustful Sacraments. It is the most representative of the rest of the album and its themes of self-destruction.

Perturbator has simultaneously announced the Excess EP, featuring reimaginations of “Excess” by some of his favorite artists: Author & Punisher, HEALTH, Pig Destroyer, INVSN, She Past Away and OddZoo. Author & Punisher’s version of “Excess” has also been released today, listen to it here: Tracks from the Excess EP will be released one-by-one over the next few months, with a final release date later this year.

On the covers EP, Kent continues: “With the album version of ‘Excess’ being released, I thought it would be interesting to add something unusual and asked bands that I respect to make their own cover of the song. They had complete freedom to do as they pleased and put their own spin on it. Each version is unique but all equally great.”

Author & Punisher commented on the cover: “I jumped at the chance to add a little doom to the darkness that is Perturbator: I cut the BPM literally in half….like taking a piece of gum out of your mouth, stepping on it, walking in the red light district and then giving it another go.”

New album Lustful Sacraments, which was written, performed, produced and mixed by Kent, merges the dark synthesized tones that brought Perturbator to worldwide prominence with classic post-punk, goth, and heavy techno rhythms. The album deftly weaves Perturbator’s cinematic textures with thundering drums, subtle electronic melodies and in-your-face guitar hooks.

Album pre-orders, which include both a gatefold 2LP and a 2LP picture disc as well as a cassette, CD and digital release, are available here:
