Exclusive Album Premiere Of Psych/Alt/Post-Rock/Stoner Rockers FRANK NEVER DIES New Album RED MOON RISING

Frank Never Dies released their second LP called Red Moon Rising.

Compared to their debut LP (Behind the Paradox, Blood Rock Records), the sound created by the band is now less melodic and presents more free structures that recall 70′ psychedelia. Inspirations from jazz, trip-hop, funk, and grunge merge with it.

The result of this eclectism creates a mysterious and enigmatic atmosphere, following the main themes of the LP, related to the red moon as worshipped or feared symbol: before it, the humanity reveals its most irrational aspect, between madness and adoration.

The first LP was completely instrumental, in Red Moon Rising instead Mirko Giuseppone and Simona Ferrucci sing in some tracks.

The drum’s sound of Luca Zannini is direct, sometimes aggressive, tribal and lead role all the time.

Mirko’s guitar, compared to the first LP, has a rough and vivid sound, frequently played through wah-wah pedal. The inspiration is between rock & blues and grunge.

The vintage’s sound of Simona’s synths contributes to the creation of a ’70 touch.

The bass frequently becomes the third melodic line in the tracks, with unconventional rhythm patterns and effects.

The composition of Red Moon Rising started in 2020. After three years, the drum and voice recording, mixing and mastering were made by Fabio Ferri (renowned sound engineer and former drummer of Il Balletto di Bronzo), in his studio in Roma Millenium Audio Recording.

Guitars, bass and synths were recorded in Rome at Blue Bird Studio of Simona Ferrucci and Mirko 

We are happy to premiere the whole album in full which you can hear below thanks to the great folks over at Grand Sounds Promotion and Argonuata Records.
