Future Usses Announce New Album And New Song Premiere

FUTURE USSES deliver an astounding instrumental record of Devastatingly heavy, oppresively slow, yet shimmery and lush sludge-paced rock run through a filter of nightmarish psychedelia.

It's hard to believe that The Existential Haunting“ is really a debut album.

But while FUTURE USSES have really only played a handful of shows in their short career, main songwriter Sacha Dunable has been a member of INTRONAUT for almost 15 years, andb dabbled with various doom metal projects over the years, like BEREFT (LA).

FUTURE USSES takes small elements of what those bands do and magnifies them, combining the slow-motion crushing power of doom with the atmosphere and dense
harmonic tendencies of INTRONAUT.

Drums and guitar were recorded at Clearlake Audio with Josh Newell (INTRONAUT,CYNIC), Derek Donley (INTRONAUT, BEREFT) and bass with Jon Nunez (TORCHE), alli n Los Angeles. Mixing was done by CONVERGE'S Kurt Ballou at God City Studio.

FUTURE USSES lavish guitar sound is built around live guitar loops which presents a wholeset of limitations but also virtually endless opportunities“, Sacha Dunable comments.

"The beautiful thing about making an instrumental record is that you're not obligated to impose any specific literal message onto the listener, but rather to concentrate on setting a vibe that can be interpreted or personified naturally through the power of their own imagination."


Here is a Premiere of their excellent new song What Is Anything.

The Existential Haunting will be available to buy from Pelagic Records later this year. 

Future Usses will be playing a number of West Coast shows this spring with bands like Dead Meadow, Whores, Sumac and Helms Alee, and a European tour is in the making for the fall of 2018.
