Iguana Death Cult Announce New LP 'Echo Palace', Stream "Sensory Overload"

Netherlands krautrock/psych/punk band Iguana Death Cult have announced the release of their new full-length album ‘Echo Palace‘.

The follow-up to their 2019’s album ‘Nude Casino‘, will be out on May 12 via Innovative Leisure. Pre-order your copy here.

Echo Palace may be the Iguana Death Cult music that’s most overtly about the strange cause and effect of groupthink. Watching the pandemic paranoia and conspiracy theories steeping across their country, Reek wrote lyrics reflecting the scene in front of him: ‘Purple, veiny soccer mommies,’ he sings in a deep, foreboding voice on the song Echo Palace, ‘sharpening their guillotines.’ It’s a cut so infectious that it betrays the density of its lyrics, which were adapted from a poem Reek wrote about the repercussions of “shutting yourself off from everyone outside of your own ideology.”

Sensory Overload” is the first single coming from the album, Jeroen Reek explains: “Scrolling up and down my feed, I literally feel like I’m traveling back and forth through space and time sometimes: since down is up and up is down and reality is starting to feel like a joke – which is making me very, very anxious. We wrote quite the jittery tune to compliment the manic lyrics which are more or less heavily distorted flutters of consciousness. To emphasize this, we asked saxophone legend Benjamin Herman to channel his inner James Chance and blow this song to pieces.”
