All Hallowed are a bass/vox/drums dance punk powerhouse comprised of Ricky and Lacey Terrell that emerges from a backdrop of industrial decline and urban decay during a staggeringly weird and hopelessly dangerous period in history. The group has shared their second single, Lust, and you can listen to it via YouTube below.
Lust features guest vocals from singer/songwriter Vinnie Caruana of The Movielife, I Am the Avalanche and Peace’d Out.
“I met these lovely people as we collaborated on a benefit show after the mass shooting in their home town of Dayton,” Caruana says. “It’s only natural that our collaboration continued, only this time, in the studio. I love the tunes, it was very easy for me to get on board.”
“It was great to have Vinnie featured on this song,” Lacey adds. “The heavy content and subject matter worked well as a male/female duet.”
Clocking in at under two and a half minutes, Lust continues to carry the banner of their less-is-more mantra, which might seem overly efficient. Make no mistake, All Hallowed deliver groovy, fuzz damaged riffs that land with a lurid, melodramatic force that lacks subtlety. All Hallowed is a band that is reverent in their influences, and in Lust listeners are sure to hear nuanced nods to everyone from Death From Above 1979, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Faint, and The Kills to Blondie.
“This song is really the first we wrote for All Hallowed,” Ricky explains. “This song helped set the tone for direction in which our music would grow.”
In addition to Caruana, All Hallowed recruited Aaron Gillespie (of Underoath, The Almost) who recorded the drums at his stand alone studio in Utah. Lust was produced by Denny Cottle and engineered, mixed and mastered by Micah Carli (formerly of Hawthorne Heights) at his Popside studio in Troy, Ohio.
Lust is the second single from their forthcoming EP via Friend Club Records. Pre-order the cassette here.
