SANATORIUM SIX unleash new single THE KILLER IN ME and disclose details of upcoming sophomore EP VIOLENCE.
SANATORIUM SIX make their comeback to the scene in 2019 and are set to release a new album.
Hailing from Pompton Lakes/Wanaque, Northern New Jersey, the musical project formed shortly after musicians Laven Reese and Gerswin Reynolds met in 2016. Wasting no time, the musicians gave the world a taste of their music output with debut EP The Anthems Of The Damned, produced by Chris Breen. The band is currently consisting of Gerswin Reynolds at vocals, guitar and piano, Laven Reese at lead guitar and Chris Anthony Basile at bass.
On July 12th, 2019 the band unleashed lead single THE KILLER IN ME, a dark melodic interplay between guitar and lead vocals setting a new dramatic scenario where the band found a space to evolve beyond any genre and soundscape. The single will be followed up by an official video in September 2019. It’s the band’s first material to come out since their debut EP. An atmospheric, mellow guitar-driven track portraying a dark and brooding output gradually building up towards a powerful finale of razor-sharp riffing and blistering screaming. The single anticipates the band’s sophomore EP VIOLENCE dropping at the beginning of August 2019, also hosting the guest appearances of Jimmy Ramos and John Niemiec at drums. The band will give a further sneak peek of the album with a new single in the upcoming days.
Without fitting into one specific genre and refusing to do so, Sanatorium Six draw on a vast array of influences mainly ranging from industrial to punk, but essentially exploring a dark, raw, powerful kind of music striking a smart balance of emotionally engaging, instrumentally aggressive and lyrically insightful. Discussing lyrical themes designed to trigger a multitude of affects, the new EP touches on meaningful subjects approached from a satirical point of view. As guitarist Laven Reese disclosed, Sanatorium Six started on this kind of subtext and attitude: from misanthropy, apathy, a touch of nihilism to discord and disillusion with everything mainstream. With VIOLENCE, Sanatorium Six created a musical expression of themselves.
The first couple of tracks boast down-tuned riffing and a sharp guitar work, courtesy of Laven Reese, while Gerswin Reynolds focused on developing his own unique blend of vocals. As declared by the vocalist, the first time the band sat down to work on The Anthems Of The Damned EP, the songs were already written and all he had to do was adding vocals on the tracks. In the last 6 months, the vocalist has expanded his vocal range, reaching out to higher pitches and notes, reshaping and strengthening screaming techniques.
Sanatorium Six make their comeback, and they are more focused and confident than ever, ready to grab crowds by the throat and punish them with their redefined music output while entertaining with plenty of catchiness, something the band thrive on and never fail. With future plans including more shows, more releases, a new band member at keyboards for further progression and more experimental efforts in the horror scenario, this unit is proving to have what it takes to create something outstanding and overtake many of their underground contemporaries. Full speed ahead!
