Canadian duo cleopatrick have announced their new EP DOOM today, due for release October 21st. Pre save here. Fans who pre save the EP will be directed to an exclusive EP preview video created by the band.
The news of the band’s new EP follows the release of their eerie, Stanley Kubrick-esque music video for latest thrashing single ‘OK’ released back in August, which you can watch here.
DOOM EP was produced and written entirely by cleopatrick, and sees the band thrillingly delve into previously uncharted experimental spheres, as well as showcasing the complex multifacetedness of their alternative artistry.
“DOOM was written and recorded during one of the most intense years of our career as we toured nearly non-stop from September 2021 to August 2022. It’s a collection of 5 songs about digital complacency, fleeting privacy, love letters written out in 1’s and 0’s, divine macbooks, leaked files, lost humanity, corrupt hard drives, lizard billionaires, killer asteroids, the proverbial “cloud”, maxwell’s equations, 1997’s IBM “DEEP BLUE ®” supercomputer, high energy particles, and the magic piece of glass that I keep in my right front pocket” – Luke Gruntz
cleopatrick recently wrapped up a string of European festival slots, including a packed out set on the Festival Republic Stage at this year’s Reading & Leeds Festivals, which Rock Sound coined as “joyous chaos”. The band also recently released “A FILM CALLED: BUMMER”; a surreal concert-documentary that was shot at the band’s triumphant sold-out Toronto show at The Danforth Music Hall in December 2021. Directed and produced by @cowboydrugs, the film premiered simultaneously on YouTube and at an in-person screening at The Loft in the band’s hometown of Cobourg, ON.
Since their inception, cleopatrick have proved themselves to be one of the most in-demand rising rock bands on the planet. They were the only band picked for Amazon Music UK’s Ones To Watch 2021, and have amassed over 100 million streams alongside multiple sell-out tours and several shows (including London’s Alexandra Palace) supporting Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes in 2020.
