Dark Post-Punk hailing from Oakland, we are premiering today Fearing’s Behind The Mask off of their debut EP A Life of None.
With a sound self described as “sort of like Asylum Party mixed with Sisters Of Mercy—maybe with a slight Nick Cave edge to it,” Fearmg have evolved from their punk and hardcore origins in a fashion not dissimilar The Blitz or many German Punk bands, who would eventually foray into more melodic work.
Behind The Mask is a slow shiver of brooding bass and guitars that indeed puts in the cold in coldwave. For More information on Fearing, read an interview with Interview with vocalist/bassist James Rogers over at New Noise Magazine, and pick up the Ep Life of None over at Funeral Party Records—it’s out May 26th!
