We are super excited to announce a new Humans As Animals single, Bilack (pronounced By-lack) to be released on May 15th and are celebrating today with the band's accompanying film, Shot by Danielle Sexton (Pet Shop Girls, Factory X) & edited by Alan Erpi.
Known for their bombastic live shows, Humans as Animals are a house with many little rooms, presenting a patchwork scene of dramatic, visceral and blackly absurd observations in song. The five-piece band will be celebrating the release with a double single launch at 24 Moons on May 22 and a regional tour, taking in the Mornington Peninsula and the Great Ocean Rd. Joining them will be LAMA, a vivacious colourful outfit, whose debut single, Eat! will be out May 22.
Bilack is a monster, he enters when matters compound and he bursts from out of a self-medicated sadness and feeds. When full, a combination of hedonism and euphoric ecstasy force him to thrust, a rhythmic display of social dominance performed to clearly label him the inevitable achiever of an act of conjoined, sweaty gene procurement, and the ending is morose.
Self-produced, Bilack was mostly recorded at home at the band's Onion Studios. Rhythm section tracking and mixing was done by Nick Herrera at The Grove Studios, who has worked with the likes of Hiatus Kaiyote, and the whole beast was mastered by Jack the Bear at Jack the Bear's Deluxe Studios (Nick Cave, Something For Kate).
Following Bilack, Humans As Animals will be creating work under their new concept, Character. The first piece of the musical puzzle will be released in September with an accompanying Fringe Festival show.
