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.


Massive album! Powerful sound. Hard to say which is my favourite track. Playing it both in track order and randomly brings loads of energy.  Spectres can do no wrong to my ears. Been a big fan since “Dying”. I was lucky enough to see them live a few years back and they blew me away. This album is as good, if not better than anything they’ve released to date. A lot of the tracks are considerably shorter than their previous work, but no less powerful. An excellent piece of work and already one of my faves from this year.

Released October 30th, 2020
