Anxiety about the precarious nature of reality is a recurring thread on Protomartyr's fourth longplayer, and Domino debut, ‘Relatives In Descent’. Though not a concept album, it presents twelve variations on a theme: the unknowable nature of truth, and the existential dread that often accompanies it. It's no coincidence this missive comes to us at a moment when disinformation and garbled newspeak have become a daily reality. Without sanding any of the edges born from their days as a Detroit bar band, ‘Relatives In Descent’ offers new layers and new insights, whilst showcasing Protomartyr at their most unsettling and impressive.

Special edition indies only blue coloured vinyl (also includes fold-out poster, zine insert featuring lyrics & original illustrations, and download code).
