Modern post-Punk/New Wave disciples New Way Vendetta (Electric Frankenstein, Christian Death) have dropped a hypnotic video for their killer new track, the gloriously creepy “Love In Quarantine’ which we are debuting here at Ghost Cult!

This is the second virtual 7″ single from the upcoming Rites Of The Black Mask full-length coming in 2021.

The video, especially the old medical footage will unsettle you in places, which is a nice mix with the upbeat, but not a happy song. The track is available for purchase on Bandcamp, Spotify, and iTunes today, so watch the clip now and support this rising actContinue reading

But I digress.Continue reading
