** EASY KILL GO LIVING WITH GHOSTS! **
** DEBUT ALBUM ‘MELANSCHOLAR’ OUT SEPTEMBER 22ND! **

A gently melancholic fierce panda one sheet

The Act: EASY KILL

The Release: ‘MELANSCHOLAR’

The Format: DIGITAL & COMPACT DISC ALBUM

The Release Date: SEPTEMBER 22ND 2017

The Label: fierce panda records

The Tracklisting: 1 ‘How To Talk (Exit Laughing)’; 2 ‘Phantom Pain’; 3 ‘The Constant Hum’; 4 ‘Stand Ins’; 5 ‘The Lake’; 6 ‘Guilt Trip To The Moon’; 7 ‘Two O’Clock Ghost’; 8 ‘Coping Haven’; 9 ‘Projection Room’; 10 ‘Morning Son (Move On)’

The Truth: EASY KILL come from Manchester, England. They consist of Theo Tobias, Ronan Clowes, Alex Howes, Andrew Keaveney and Thomas Short. 'Melanscholar' is their debut album, due for digital release on fierce panda on September 22nd with the CD to follow on October 6th, and it follows on the hazy heels of lead-off track ‘Phantom Pain’, the summertime single which set out the quintet’s quixotic agenda.

Second sultry single 'Constant Hum' was released on September 8th and was premiered at https://www.thelineofbestfit.com/new-music/discovery/easy-kill-constant-hum and EASY KILL play September shows in Newcastle Think Tank (26th) and Manchester Deaf Institute (30th) before they headline London’s Moth Club on October 3rd with esteemed support from National Service + The Talk Show.

Moth Club tickets are available from all usual outlets, or indulge yourself with a cheap panda bundle of gig ticket + 'Melanscholar' CD via http://www.fiercepanda.co.uk/shop.php?release=565 right bloomin' now.

The EASY KILL sound has been half-jokingly labelled ‘doom-pop’, a term which highlights the duality underpinning their music, wherein quiet thoughtful lulls are followed by louder moments of uplift or down-spiral. Chaos then clarity…the excitement and fear of being alive. This angsty theme has been carefully honed in Easy Kill’s previous releases, the ‘Already Entitled’ EP (2015) and the ‘Sermons’ EP (2016). But it hits a whole new creative apogee with the 'Melanscholar' project, which sees EASY KILL running with the concept of life in the afterlife.

With its spectral, synthetic layers and perplexed vocals ‘Melanscholar’ is an unfathomably LOVELY record; modern and maudlin, like a woeful Foals blended with sad-faced post-Alt-J japery. But this is an album which is also aware of the ghosts of the past, infused at is with the spirit of Talk Talk while at one point in ‘The Lake’ they sound like an ethereal 10CC. They’re not in love. So don’t forget it. Or, in their own words...

"‘Melanscholar’ is the debut album by Easy Kill. It follows the journey of a lost soul, trying to find its bearings in the afterlife. The story is an allegory about growing up and learning to adapt to circumstances outside of your control. The more Melanscholar can glean about what keeps it in this strange limbo, the greater its chance of passing through.

"The album was recorded entirely at home. Musically, it is dynamic and cohesive, supporting the narrative which is unstable yet persevering. The songs ebb and flow to match shifts in mood and place. To ensure the album’s message remains ubiquitous and accessible, the band have broadened their sonic arsenal. Using more atmospheric, warm and electronic sounds than before, they seek to immerse the listener in the unworldly landscape their ghost inhabits..."
