Washington D.C. doom act Ilsa will release their crushing new record Preyer on November 20. Granted I haven’t heard Preyer yet, but given their new single “Poor Devil” and their previous output, I just assume it’ll be crushing.
“‘Poor Devil’ sprung from study of Potter’s Fields and the story of Judas Iscariot, where I found parallels with [American murderer] Sean Sellers’ ‘betrayal’ by his best friend and Judas’ role as biblical scapegoat,” said vocalist Orion. “For such a lynchpin in the The Passion Of Christ, Judas was never afforded the reverence of the other disciples, forever damned as an unredeemable traitor, while the story could never be complete without his participation.
“The Potter’s Field where Judas hung himself became the burial grounds of the discarded and unclaimed dead, and the name stuck to this day. Apologies to D.I.’s ‘Richard Hung Himself’ where we snuck a nod to the one of the best punk songs ever written.”
Pre-orders are available here.
