The Queen of Death Gospel; Louise Lemón is back with a new album 2024. First taste is the single Midsummer Night

Louise Lemón is back with a new album early 2024. An album she's written on her own, recorded with her band and then re-connected with Randall Dunn for mix/mastering (known for his work with Thurston Moore, Zola Jesus, Sunn O))), Marissa Nadler, Anna Von Hausswolff and many more).  The single Midsummer Night is our first taste of what's to come and she comments:

"I found myself in a position of my deepest sorrow, that made me see myself in a new light, forced me to really grow. I wrote and also produced my upcoming album and this single and really it was me taking charge of my own soul. This is such an important piece for me as it was me not letting anyone else own the narrative of my story. I am proud of wearing my heart on my sleeve. What I may or may not lack in any part of life, I do not lack in my music. That force is my lifepower. Someone told me no one will be as big of a love as my music is, and in one way I  think he was right. Musically I ventured into a new space, took off any layers that weren't completely pure, it’s straight forward, unapologetic. As always I found myself recording with my amazing band having them to lean on and grow with. So even in the deepest storms music saves. "

Louise Lemón's two previous albums and the 'Devil' EP has been embraced by both the mainstream and the rock and metal world and has gained her the title 'the Queen of Death Gospel'Louise found herself the subject of numerous reviews and features across the world’s press; including major pieces in multiple country editions of Metal Hammer (including an invitation to their prestigious ‘Golden Gods’ awards), PowerplayRevolver MagazineZero ToleranceClose-Up, Sonic SeducerOrkus, Gaffa and many more…
