Massachussets Trio Krill Announces New LP, Premieres “Torturer”

Krill, Krill—forever and ever.

December 09, 2014

Guitar rock malcontents Krill are back. Next year, the Massachusetts-based trio will follow up their still-great "failed concept album" with a new full-length called A Distant Fist Unclenching. According to frontman Jonah Furman, lead single "Torturer" is about "what most Krill songs have ever been about: self-love and self-hate and the rightness and wrongness of each." The track is a freshly ambitious peek into Krill's weird, rough-edged universe, with Furman's literary-minded writing as prominent as ever; in an email to FADER, he mentioned that some of the lyrics were inspired by Dostoyevsky. "Crime and Punishment got me thinking about the 'threshold' and 'transgression,'" he said. "In 'Torturer,' I look into the torture chamber and decide if it's time for judgment." The LP drops through Exploding In Sound and Double Double Whammy on February 17th, but you can pre-order the vinyl now. Check out some tour dates below the player, too.
