Following an exhilarating run earlier this year, CHRISTEENE announces her return as direct support on a series of dates on Fever Ray’s upcoming US tour in November. Bringing her raw spirit of ferocious music, unabashed sexuality, and fiery intimate stank to one of the year’s most-anticipated tours, she’s touring behind last year’s ‘MIDNITE FUKK TRAIN’ (Spaceflight Records).
A performer who revels turning conventions completely on their head, CHRISTEENE’s legendary live shows are, as PAPER states, “not to be missed.” Those lucky enough to experience them describe inexplicably powerful experiences, distressed choreography, macabre scenes involving butt plugs tied to bouquets of balloons being released from the singer’s ass, wardrobes styled from the forgotten scraps of society, and intimately heated sermons on the state of the world as we know it. Arrive early and behold CHRISTEENE’s provocative prowess.
‘MIDNITE FUKK TRAIN’ sees CHRISTEENE leaving no soul unscathed. With shrill, explosive saxophones, crushing guitars, and militant percussion backing her ferocious vocals, she’s described by The Guardian as “…Tina Turner or Diamanda Galás at full stretch, at the pitch of Slipknot’s Corey Taylor.” The album is a chaotic reflection of CHRISTEENE’s seclusion, holding traces of the world that she knew and experiences she had before the world flipped. Across eight tracks, she delivers a cripplingly heroic collection of songs articulating a raw, popular rage in these troubling times.
