King Woman have announced the release of their sophomore effort, Celestial Blues. The record is slated to arrive on July 30th via Relapse Records. The group have also premiered a music video for the first single, “Morning Star”. The clip was directed by Muted Widows. Frontwoman Kris Esfandiari said of the song:
“‘Morning Star’ is “basically a song about Lucifer. It’s Lucifer telling their side of the story. I’ve had the idea for that song in my head for a few years, and it was haunting, and I was like, I have to put this song on the record.
In church, we were told that Lucifer was so bad and evil, but I feel like often times the people who are portrayed as bad guys in different stories or the news are not what they’re perceived to be, so I wanted to flip it on its head and make it something interesting.”
The record was engineered by Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Jeff Rosenstock) Pre-orders for Celestial Blues are available now at this location.
Additionally, King Woman have announced a string of performances scheduled. The group will perform at LA’s Lodge Room on July 30th and 31st.
