about

CEREMONY make their Relapse Records debut with their highly ambitious new album, 'In the Spirit World Now'! The album sees CEREMONY at the height of their creative output, as the always-evolving Rohnert Park quintet take various influences from post punk and rock to create one of the summer's most compelling and infectious records.

"In the Spirit World Now" is full of layered sonic fury and anxiety, each song building up to a point and then descending down through a militant, catchy hook. “Turn Away the Bad Thing” sets the tone, guitars climbing around the driving bass line, as Ross Farrar sings, “It’s getting harder for me to be alright/Eyes adjusting to the dark/The momentum of all these last resorts built inside of me.” Songs like “Presaging the End” and “Calming Water” feel romantic and distressed, while “Further I Was” and “Years of Love” are driven by Farrar’s rebellious energy as he repeats the hook with a deadpan realness. “Years of love can be forgotten/In the hatred of a day.” But the true stand-out is the title track, “In the Spirit World Now”, a haunting pop gem with a sticky chorus and lead synth riff that plants itself in your head as Farrar chants the track’s name over and over like a mantra.

“In the Spirit World Now" is a sort of nebulous and ectoplasmic place where things may not be quite what they seem,” he says. “It means sh*t is about to get weird.” The album marks a milestone for this Northern California punk outfit who have stayed true to themselves as songwriters throughout massive sonic growth throughout their storied career.

Track Name: Turn Away the Bad Thing
It’s getting harder for me to be alright
Eyes adjusting to the dark
The momentum of all these last resorts
Built inside of me
I always believed there was a way
To get out of end times
Everything I was or said I am
Breaking inside of me

I hope you’ll think of me one day
But even in my dreams
I wasn’t good to you
I know I’ll fall apart someday
But even in my dreams
I’ve always avoided you

I see a rose and feel disdain
The adoration and boredom of it
All the tired repose that it gives
Dead and meaningless
I don’t wanna be bitter anymore
Bitterness is the sin
I wanna be soft and innocent
Soft as any palm

I hope you’ll think of me one day
But even in my dreams
I wasn’t good to you
I know I’ll fall apart someday
But even in my dreams
I never trusted you

Just got into town
I passed by your house last night
No light
Don’t ever come back to me
Never
I’ve gone my whole life looking for something to love
I can’t find that thing
To love

Please turn away the bad thing
