Hate Gallery, which features current Warrior Soul members Rille Lundell and Janne Jarvis, will release their new six track E.P "Dead Celebrities" on 11/23.
Vocalist/bassist Janne Jarvis issued the following statement about the EP: "The title track is a modern day fairytale about a 'fictional' amoral British celebrity who epitomizes the Cult of Celebrity and who earns the disgust of a nation and it's media yet is considered a saint at the time of their untimely death. Were not pulling any punches with the title track and it's pretty easy to figure out who and what it's about. We're sick of the cult of celebrity and appalled at the media saturation and Mooney-esque brainwashing that goes with it. Live like a pig, die like a saint?"
