The Third Sound  (Brian Jonestown Massacre guitarist’s projet) release new single “Dissociation” ahead of new Fuzz Club LP

The Third Sound are today sharing the new single and video ‘Dissociation’, the final preview into the incoming ‘First Light’ LP aheads of its release on August 27th via Fuzz Club Records. Led by The Brian Jonestown Massacre guitarist Hákon Aðalsteinsson, The Third Sound are a Berlin-based band that deal in a hypnotic blend of neo-psychedelia, post-punk and new wave. You can stream ‘Dissociation’ and its accompanying video here: thirdsound.lnk.to/dissociation. In support of the new album, The Third Sound will be touring mainland Europe in September/October this year.

Arriving following recent singles ‘Your Love Is Evol’ and ‘This Is The Only Way I Know’, the shadowy ‘Dissociation’ sees The Third Sound deal in a gothic-psychedelic post-punk sound that recalls the likes of Echo & The Bunnymen, The Chameleons and Sisters of Mercy. Talking about the track, Hakon said: “Dissociation is a song about the blurred lines between an altered state of mind and reality that seems to somehow follow your experience even more closely than it should. Leaving you feeling drawn to it and detached at the same time, only being able to see things from a distance.”

The follow-up to 2018’s ‘All Tomorrow’s Shadows’ LP, ‘First Light’ album marks an evolution into a brighter and at times uplifting sound. Marrying moments of light and dark, the result is the band’s most dynamic full-length to date: “This album is definitely less gloomy than the previous one, although some ghosts from the past are lurking in the background. We always try to make something new on each album and never make the same album over again, but this feels like an even bigger change than usual, especially regarding the mood. Something new is beginning although the past is not forgotten. I think the title, First Light, describes the overall feel of the record pretty well.”

‘First Light’ is the fifth full-length from The Third Sound and arrives off the back of 2018’s ‘All Tomorrow’s Shadows’, 2016’s ‘Gospels of Degeneration’, 2013’s ‘The Third Sound of Destruction and Creation’ and their 2011 self-titled debut which was released on Anton Newcombe’s A Recordings. With Hakon Aðalsteinsson leading the group on vocals and guitar, the rest of the band is comprised of

Robin Hughes (Guitar / Organ), Fred Sunesen (Drums) and Andreas Miranda (Bass). With a number of European tours in tow, the band have previously shared the stage with the likes of the Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Warlocks, Singapore Sling, Crocodiles, Clinic, Tess Parks and more. In September/October this year the band will set off on a European tour in support of ‘First Light’ – the list of dates can be found below.
