French synthwave icon Carpenter Brut is back, announcing his brand-new album ‘Leather Terror,’ out April 1 via Universal. As well, today he releases the colossal synthrock anthem “Imaginary Fire” featuring vocalist Greg Puciato (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Killer Be Killed, The Black Queen). The accompanying video was directed by Dehn Sora and captures an eerily beautiful apocalypse during a psychedelic trip.
Speaking about his involvement, Puciato says, “I’m really proud of this one, happy to cross these musical paths. I love how the video turned out too. Lyrically the song is pretty to the point. Two people frustratingly trying to get rid of their fears and their made-up bullshit so they can move forward, together or separate, free of outcome.”
See the video for “Imaginary Fire” above.
If you have followed Brut’s work over the years he has created some bombastic tracks with eye-popping and thrilling music videos that are like grindhouse movies. If you have never heard or seen one of his music videos, I highly recommend you check them out on youtube.
