Hercules & Love Affair and ANOHNI have shared ‘Poisonous Storytelling’, the second single from the upcoming album In Amber. Following previous offering ‘Grace’, the track finds the two artists reuniting for the first time since Hercules & Love Affair’s self-titled 2008 debut. Check it out below.
Hercules & Love Affair’s Andy Butler said in a statement about the track: “‘Poisonous Storytelling’ started as a song called ‘Sacral’ – The music evoked sacred rites, but the word “Sacral” also speaks to one of the sources of our rootedness and stability.” ANONHI added: “We must be careful with new narratives, because everyone is rotted out from poisonous storytelling.”
Also out today are two remixes of the track by Justin K Broadrick (Godflesh) and techno duo Giant Swan, which you can find below, too. In Amber, Hercules & Love Affair’s first new album since 2017’s Omnion, arrives on June 17 via Skint/BMG.
