The Night Terrors Release New Single And Announce Australian Tour For July

Written by Mike Solo on June 6, 2012

Melbourne dark synth heavyweights The Night Terrors emerged from the depths of the studio to launch their brand new double A-side 12″ Monster/Lasers for Eyes on OSCL Records.

Featuring vintage horror synth, the haunting theremin melodies of Miles Brown (student of Russian theremin queen Lydia Kavina), and the powerhouse drumming of Damian Coward (Heirs, Love Like Electrocution), The Night Terrors offer a mind-melting mix of dark synth magic, thunderous dreamscapes and other-worldly electronica.

Since the release of their debut long-player Back to Zero in 2009, The Night Terrors have taken their theremin-fueled synthscapes across the world, supporting the likes of Goblin, Hawkwind, Lou Reed, Black Mountain, Serena-Maneesh, Black Mountain, Melt-Banana & Bardo Pond.

Upon return to Australia the band retreated to studios in Tasmania and Melbourne to work on tracks for their follow-up album.

Monster/Lasers for Eyes is the first glimpse of The Night Terrors’ new material – moving beyond the post-prog stylings of their earlier work to focus on a broader universe of warped psychedelic electronics and the darker corners of the dance floor.

The 12″ features remixes by Berlin Italo-disco legend Antoni Maiovvi (repaying the favour for The Night Terrors’ 2011 remix of his single Murderfunk) and Australian synth legend Ash Wednesday (The Metronomes, The Models, Einstürzende Neubauten). Also included are previously unreleased Night Terrors live favourites Meteor Shower and Somnambulist.

The band hit the road in July, along with Melbourne synth sensations FORCES, fresh from performing at the Sydney Opera House for Vivid 2012.
