American experimental electronic artist Kristin Hayter aka Lingua Ignota has announced the release of a new album which follows 2019’s Caligula. Sinner Get Ready will be out on August 6th via Sargent House. According to the press release, it s an unsettling portrait of devotion and betrayal, judgement and consequence, set in the derelict landscape of rural Pennsylvania, a neglected region deeply embedded with a particularly god fearing brand of Christianity, and where Hayter was living during the album’s inception.
We already shared “Pennsylvania Furnace“; “Perpetual Flame of Centralia” is a new excerpt. Watch the official video below.
The video, shot by Emily Birds, brings an extraordinary and profoundly moving collaboration between Hayter and acclaimed fashion designer and fellow Sargent House artist Ashley Rose Couture who created the looks specifically for this video, inspiring an entire collection. Prompted with “the blood of Jesus,” the designer created a floor-length, red veil studded with pearls and mountains of tulle. Hayter explains, “I asked her to design a piece indebted to 17th-century dutch costume, and she returned with a gown with a 20-foot train and a magisterial lace collar exploding with pearls.” The two artists deal with pain through their art: Hayter through past domestic abuse and Rose through the death of her twin brother, whose encouragement led to her starting her own line.
