AUTHOR & PUNISHER's New Song "Maiden Star" Is Massively Sludgy

Plus maybe a touch of shoegaze-type guitars.

Author & Punisher is here to take you away to a far-off desert world with its new single "Maiden Star." Or at least that's what the song sounds like. With massive industrial percussion, floating synths, and dreamy guitars, Author & Punisher's upcoming record Krüller is sounding pretty damn good so far.

"'Maiden Star' continues the trudge of escape and survival from 'Drone Carrying Dread,' but with a focus on the vital interpersonal conflicts and triumphs that exist in times of war and peace," said Author & Punisher mastermind Tristan Shone. "This track, my personal favorite from the balance of the heavy and the melodic, is deeply personal and painful at the same time. The first note both lifts me up and beats the shit out of me."

Pre-orders for Krüller are available here.
