It’s been a while. We are very happy to announce that our 3rd LP It’s Never Going To Happen And This Is Why will be released on Hallow’s Eve Eve, via our new DARK HABITS imprint. It will have been three and a half years since “Condition” and it really has felt a lot longer…but let’s save all that for another time and cut to the chase. Spectres return with ‘It’s Never Going To Happen And This Is Why’, their bluntest, most bludgeoning LP yet. The oft sprawling and trance-inducing explorations of feedback and terror featured on their previous two critically acclaimed albums ‘Dying’ (2015) and ‘Condition’ (2017) have been supplanted by a rifle chamber of condensed noise nuggets firing in at three minutes or less. Spectres have gone pop.

Recorded by Alex Greaves at The Nave, a 19th century Methodist church in Leeds, and released on their own new Dark Habits imprint in Europe / Little Cloud Records in the USA, the mischievously titled album sees Spectres at their most radical and playful, splattered with guest spots from experimental artists Klein, Elvin Brandhi, Ben Vince and French Margot.

The video for the initial taster, An Annihilation Of The Self, can be seen from 10am on Friday by clicking on the still below.

The video is a collaboration between Joe and Adrian from the band. Joe in the fix of his own Blair Witch and Adrian bringing the words to illustrative strife with inimitably grim effect.

Slightly indulgent but something we have been wanting to do for a while. A square 12″ wooden box that will contain a test pressing of the album, all artwork from the album as a 12″ printed booklet, a copy of Dark Habits zine, signed one off original artwork and a few surprise extras plus hand painted lid. We’ll be hand building these so expect a few exciting defects, and they may well come nailed shut, like a real coffin. Limited to 10.
