Amesoeurs Completes New Album

France’s AMESOEURS (featuring Neige of ALCEST and award winning animation filmmaker Fursy Teyssier of LES DISCRETS) has completed work on their debut album, simply titled “Amesoeurs.”

Amesoeurs' self-titled debut full-length is being released in North America by Profound Lore (Code666 in Europe), following the band’s highly praised and acclaimed 2007 “Ruines Humaines” EP.

Formed by Neige and vocalist Audrey Sylvain in 2004, Amesoeurs is a bleak, violent, melancholic, suffocating, desolate vision, one brimming with negativity and despair. Through their music, Amesoeurs portray a world of urban decay, a lifeless wasteland and a dark realm that becomes all too real in an age of social decay.

By mixing elements of harsh melancholic black metal, post-punk and ‘80s new wave influenced heavily by acts like JOY DIVISION, early CURE, and DEPECHE MODE, “Amesoeurs” is an album that mixes elements for each of the aforementioned genres into one mind-numbing and unrelenting sonic journey where each song translates into a different expression which all weave together.

The tracklisting for “Ameoeurs” is as follows:

1. Gas In Veins
2. Les Ruches Malades
3. Heurt
4. Recueuillement
5. Faux Semblants
7. Trouble (Eveils Infames)
8. Video Girl
9. La Reine Trayeuse
10. Amesoeurs
11. Au Crepuscule De Nos Reves

An MP3 medley sample of the tracks “Gas In Veins” and “Amesoeurs” can be heard here.

Expect the North American version of “Amesoeurs” to officially be released in North America sometime in April.

I'm pretty excited for this one. Amesoeurs are on the far side of awesome, even if their name sounds like something a French schoolgirl would call her kittycat.
