Hold Me Fire

The video for “Hold Me Fire” is breathtaking, somber, and a true piece of cinematic art. In it, an esoteric symbol haunts the dreams of a young woman as she frantically tries to reproduce the image in her mind onto paper. Simultaneously, an ancient pagan ritual plays out on a desolate seashore. At first it seems as though the arcane ritual is playing out in her dreams, but then the lines between reality and ritual begin to blur…

NEW SINGLE

Hold Me Fire

The new track is now streaming on New Noise and available from Bandcamp as an immediate download with the pre-order of the upcoming No Center Line EP.  

 

 
‘Hold Me Fire’ is the center piece of the new EP, ‘No Center Line.’ The song was built from merging two demos, the main chorus at the beginning and end of the song expands on a demo that D recorded a few years ago, while the middle section is built upon an ambient guitar piece by Jeremy. Like our previous release, ‘Interia,’ which was about an android, ‘No Center Line’ is a concept record. ‘Hold Me Fire’ was key in establishing the identity of the main character, a witch, crossing back and forth between life and death, seeking revenge.

NEW SINGLE

The Gods Have Become Disease

The new track is now streaming on CVLT Nation and available from Bandcamp as an immediate download with the pre-order of the upcoming No Center Line EP.  

 

 
Simply put, “The Gods Have Become Disease” is beautifully sad. D’s harmonious, dreamy vocals ring out over shoegazey atmospheric electronica. Eventually D’s vocals fade out and the song ends on a much more ominous and experimental note. It’s as though We Are Parasols is taking you through this dream planet they’ve created. This is industrialgaze at its most pure.

LOVE AND ROCKETS TRIBUTE

saudade

We Are Parasols have contributed our version of the Love and Rockets song, "Saudade" to the new tribute compilation released by The Blog That Celebrates Itself.

 
 
Formed in 1985 by former Bauhaus members Daniel Ash (vocals, guitar and saxophone), David J (bass guitar and vocals) and Kevin Haskins (drums and synthesisers)......hmmmm well, you already know the whole story, right? So the only thing I’d like to say is, who doesn´t like Love & Rockets, isn´t a good person .

This project is dedicated to all the bands that make this a delicious and tasty tribute, and of course, special project dedicated to Mr.Ash, Mr. J. and Mr. Haskins.

With love and respect,

Renato Malizia

NEW VIDEO & SINGLE

ss.tab

Music Video Directed & Edited by Jason Roark / Art Direction by Sara Bergqvist

The "ss.tab" digital single features the non-album track, "in the club" and the Bandcamp download includes the music video for "ss.tab" 

 
 
As soon as the video for ss.tab starts, you are aware that you’re not watching a cookie cutter, turn and burn music video. A lot of thought, effort, and creativity went into this arresting piece…a music video that shows that the word “art” can and should be used more when visually representing ideas found in music.

NEW ALBUM

INERTIA

 
 
The music suggests something beyond human a sort of impossible blend of the primitive and ancient and the clinical and futuristic, a hybrid of animal and machine, primordial yet complex as eerie atmospherics and Stygian sounds vie for attention and the end result is a heavy, claustrophobic and nebulous musical collection.
