In this album Kill Your Boyfriend explore fully the theme of loss, seen from different points of view, human, material and spiritual, when lacks of clear reference points inevitably threaten to destabilize men and society and will lead to the eternal search for absolute well-being.

The band transform these feelings into music, an hypnotic mixture of shoegazing, new wave,
electronic, tribal rhythms with a pervasive post punk feel, ten brand-spanking new songs….. The King Is Dead, here we go!

Since the beginning their work has been conceived to be released only on vinyl, the two death lists
introduce us to both sides, totally different from each other; one lighter and optimistic, the other gloomier when hope yields to a hopeless, desperate giving up.
