Bloody Panda Unveils Album Title
Level-Plane Records proudly announces "Pheromone" as the title of the
forthcoming full-length debut by New York City doom act Bloody Panda.
Set for release on April 24, "Pheromone" captures the essence of
Bloody Panda's unique sound, a sound hailed by CMJ New Music Monthly
as "New York microtonal funeral doom" and by Flavorpill as "a hybrid
of experimental atmospherics and cold, evil metal."
"Pheromone" was recorded by Jason Marcucci (Flaming Lips, White
Stripes) and mastered by Sarah Register (Lou Reed, Calla).
Bloody Panda guitarist Josh Rothenberger explains that the title
"Pheromone" dates back to the earliest days of Bloody Panda:
"When we first started playing with [Bloody Panda frontwoman] Yoshiko,
she had a 2 minute song called 'Pheromone' that was so dark and
piercing. It was the first piece we played together. 'Pheromone' was
the force that initially brought our disparate backgrounds and musical
universes together. It kind of cast an electric shadow over the next
few years of collaboration that certainly permeated the music on the
Bloody Panda will be touring in support of "Pheromone", beginning with
an East Coast run in April.
