MARIJANNAH to release new video from Upcoming Live Album

Singapore Doom/Stoner Metal band MARIJANNAH released their second full length album Istanah on 6 December 2019 via Cursed Tongue Records. As COVID-19 cancelled all touring plans for the album in 2020, the band recorded a live playthrough of ‘Istanah’ in its entirety at The Projector, an independent movie theater in Singapore, with no crowd present.

‘Full Moon / Shapeless’, the first video and single off of ‘Istanah Live At The Projector’ will be released on 30 October 2020 on all digital streaming platforms. The full set video and album, directed by Ryan Chang (touring photographer & videographer of Grammy-winning band Ghost) and recorded by Snakeweed Studios, will be released on 13 November 2020 in its entirety.

The quartet consists of Rasyid Juraimi of Wormrot and Nicholas Wong, formerly of The Caulfield Cult. 

Marijannah released their debut record ‘Till Marijannah’ in 2018 to rave reviews. Pitchfork included it as one of their “5 Stoner Metal Highlights of 2018”, as well as a mention on their mid-year Best Metal Albums of 2018 So Far”. The band has also been featured on multiple international sites such as Revolver, MetalSucks, Metal Injection, Noisey, BrooklynVegan, Invisible Oranges and Unite Asia. Both their full length albums have also made the annual “Best of” lists on TimeOut, Bandwagon and CVLTNation.

Marijannah is Nicholas Wong (Drums, Vocals), Rasyid Juraimi (Guitar, Vocals), “Skinny” Nicholas Ng (Guitar, Vocals) and Muhammad Azri (Bass).
