A Cloud Of Ravens, a darkwave outfit from Brooklyn, announce that they have signed with alternative label Nexilis (Schubert Music Europe GmbH).
“We were both overjoyed to talk to Thomas, Eric, and Gero, who share the same kind of excitement and passion that we have,” says the band’s Matt McIntosh. “We’re really proud, and glad it’s in Nexilis’ experienced and capable hands!”
“Signing, supporting and promoting newcomers is very important to us, so we are delighted to welcome A Cloud of Ravens, one of the currently most promising Dark Wave meets Post-Punk acts, to Schubert Music Europe and Nexilis,” says Thomas Thyssen, managing director of Schubert Music Publishing, and head of Recorded Music for Schubert Music Europe. “Beth and Matt are not only versatile artists, but more importantly great people who fit perfectly into our label roster and our label philosophy. Here’s to a great working relationship!“
Forming in the autumn of 2018, A Cloud of Ravens landed strong with a string of self-released offerings and marking their place in the burgeoning contemporary dark scene. The duo released their first full-length Another Kind of Midnight in 2021; a mournful yet triumphant paean exploring the damage caused by moral tribalism amidst a devastating pandemic.
This was followed by a remix EP, featuring reimagined tracks by artists such as ACTORS, Clan of Xymox, Chris Vrenna, John Fryer, and Ritual Howls.
Singer/guitarist Matt McIntosh and bassist Beth Narducci immediately began work on the next album last spring, mastered by Jason Corbett at Jacknife Sound.
Lost Hymns will be released in February 2023 with a single, The Blackest Mantra, coming out on the 2nd of September. The duo will be supporting Clan Of Xymox on their big US tour in the fall of 2022.
