L.A.-based dark pop band Holy Wars released a wonderfully gloomy new single on Oct. 2. “Born Dark” sees frontwoman Kat Leon going back to her roots as she explores her moment of birth, and the possibility she’s always been a bit devilish.
“Creatively, she was longing for a kind of release to break the shackles of the past, while fulfilling what her destiny could and should be,” a release from the band reads.
“Born Dark” was produced by by AFI‘s Hunter Burgan and was engineered by Mat Mitchell (Nine Inch Nails, Puscifer, A Perfect Circle) who handled the song’s clashing of guitars and vocal work, while Jeff Friedl (A Perfect Circle, The Beta Machine) added drums and other essential components with additional engineering courtesy of Let Live‘s Jeff Sahyoun.
Holy Wars is also prepping for the 2019 follow-up to last year’s album Mother Father.
