The Natvral Announces New Album, Shares New Single ‘Lucifer’s Glory’

    Former Pains of Being Pure at Heart frontperson Kip Berman has announced his sophomore LP as the Natvral. It’s called Summer of No Light, and it arrives September 1 via Dirty Bingo Records. Lead single ‘Lucifer’s Glory’ is out today, and you can hear it below.

    “Don’t let the title fool you – It’s not a full throated ‘Hail Satan’, but it is full throated,” Berman said in a statement. “I suppose I could’ve called it ‘Paradise Lust’. When you hit rock bottom, but wish you could fall deeper – when you’re proud to lose, ‘cuz you know the kind of people who win- when only what’s missing remains… Sure, It’s perverse, crushing, and wrong. But it’s also alright. There were other options, but only one choice. That’s Lucifer’s Glory.”

    “These songs live somewhere between the climate crisis of 1816, the climate crisis of now, and the climate crisis of the heart,” Berman added of Summer of No Light. “You might say it’s a gothic record—but the house isn’t haunted. The ghosts moved out years ago, but I still get their mail from time to time.”
