It is has been over 18 months since we’ve heard anything from New York’s Tyburn Saints, so it is good to discover they have brought their own particular brand of gothic-tinged ‘death-indie’ back to life with the release of a new two track offering, Live on The B-Sides 91.5.
You And I In Heaven shows the five-piece have lost none of their miserabilist tendencies as, barely 30 seconds into the six minutes, frontman Johnny Gimenez’s orchestral, baritone rumble repeatedly intones “I choose death“, while guitars needle and chime in equal measure. There is more than an echo of the classic British indie rock of the 80s with Echo & The Bunnymen, The Chameleons, and even Balaam & The Angel clear touch points.
It is good to have them back. Stream it below. Grab both tracks for a pay-what-you-want deal from their Bandcamp page here.
