Post-punk quartet Klammer have announced their new album You Have Been Processed, previewed with a new video for Spiral Girl. This is the second single from the album, a solid follow-up to Modern God. The album is scheduled to release via Under Dogz Records on August 10th and the accompanying videos were directed by Steve Dutton.
Hailing from Leeds, Klammer was formed by UK producer Steve Whitfield (The Cure, The Mission, Terrorvision, Jane Weaver) in 2014, drawing from the members’ shared love for all things angular, dark, loud and melodic. They’ve gone on to release two albums via Under Dogz Records.
Previously described as the love child of XTC and Gang Of Four, Klammer offer an enticing twist on the post-punk attitude, blending in elements of goth rock, punk rock and dark wave, all with dark pop sensibilities. Here you’ll find plenty of hooks and a dark and edgy broodiness coursing through their sound.
You Have Been Processed will be the band’s third album, following up Auslane and Klammer and their debut 7″ single Everything Depends Upon The King. Championed by Steve Lamacq on BBC 6 Music, Klammer’s music continues to excite with their dark themes allied to catchy riffs and anthemic choruses.
Klammer have been consolidating their position as one of the country’s finest live post-punk acts, having played up and down the country consistently, both as a headline act and in support of other notable artists, including The Skids, The Undertones, Richie Ramone, Penetration, and The Membranes, as well as Rebellion and The Great British Alternative festivals.
As of July 13th, Modern God and Spiral Girl are available through online stores and streaming platforms, as well as from Klammer’s own website. While the You Have Been Processed album will be available on vinyl and CD as of August 10, it can already be pre-ordered via Bandcamp. The band’s album launch gig will be held at Leeds’ Brudenell Social Club on August 18th, with an October 28th show following at The Windmill Brixton for London Punk Sessions.
