The Casket Girls release new song from upcoming album, will kick off tour 6/8 in Savannah

america bleeds the tears of a clown
seeing stars behind bars
we’re in too deep
built up torn down
seeing stars behind bars
american blue blooded bleeding red

– from The Casket Girls’ “Tears of a Clown”

The Casket Girls released their new single “Tears of a Clown” last week — a catchy, dense, psychedelic song that sure feels like an indictment of American culture in the Trump era. (Or maybe I’m projecting?)

Check it out for yourself:

The Casket Girls’ new album The Night Machines will be released on 6/3 via Graveface Records. The reclusive Savannah sisters Phaedra and Elsa Greene front the band, and are joined by Ryan Graveface, the musician behind the label, the super-cool record store, and a variety of other musical projects. The new record was recorded and mixed in Savannah and Athens with Andy LeMaster. Graveface Records artist T.W. Walsh plays drums on The Night Machines.

The 2016 Graveface Roadshow kicks off on 6/8 at Southern Pine Company here in Savannah with a show featuring The Casket Girls, Stardeath and White Dwarfs, Hospital Ships, and Marshmallow Ghosts. Click here for details. Tickets ($15) are now on sale.
