GANGUE MORCEGO - Back After A Hiatus, New EP Out Now

Brazilian post-punk/deathrock band Gangue Morcego is back after a brief hiatus and they released today their brand new EP titled Garam Masala. After the hiatus, when the band did their farewell tour and their members spread across several different cities, the most celebrated bats of the brazilian post-punk/deathrock scene return with the release of their new EP.

The new release brings together the established Gangue Morcego's lineup with Alexandre Matos on vocals, Thiago Halleck on bass and synthesizers, Daniel Sombrio on keyboards, Mario Mamede on drums and programming and Daniel K on guitars, synths and samplers. The band is influenced by 20th century cartoon aesthetics (with lots of supernatural creatures, black cats and distorted places) and by Batcave's punk/post-punk tunes.

In the five tracks that form the new EP, the bats added layers of synthesizers, expanding the band's horizons as was said by Thiago Halleck: "It was a more intuitive and more experimental process, in the sense of using an electronic beat, a synthesizer, me and Daniel K ... Of course, it preserves the old band's characteristics, we were still a post-punk/deathrock band, but I think it's more free, with other horizons, and it has more to do with things that we've been producing, composing and experimenting recently, with influences from different things, like Kraftwerk, DEVO and those crazier David Bowie albums."

The song "Sombras de Marte" was recently released as a video with images of the band and scenes from Mars, recently revealed by NASA, and a tour of the cosmos. You can watch the video in the player below, and get the EP at this location. Link
