The Soft Moon announces fourth LP Criminal and unleashes lead track "Burn"

16 October 2017, 17:15 | Written by Laurence Day

Berlin-based multi-instrumentalist The Soft Moon is back with "Burn", the first single from his Sacred Bones debut Criminal.

The cataclysmic new industrial ode is the first taste of the follow up to 2015's Deeper. Maurizio Baggio is back to produce Criminal, which was recorded at La Distilleria in Bassano Del Grappa, Italy.

"Guilt is my biggest demon and has been following me since childhood," says The Soft Moon, aka Luis Vasquez. "Everything I do strengthens the narrative that I am guilty. The concept of Criminal is a desperate attempt to find relief by both confessing to my wrongdoings and by blaming others for their wrongdoings that have affected me.”

The Soft Moon plays a string of dates in the USA and Europe beginning this week. Find out the full details.
