New Jersey’s dark rock act The Antoine Poncelet Band has unveiled their debut single; the cinematic dark rock track, “April”.
The band says this about the song: “The song tells the tale of an imagined conversation between a forlorn lover and a prophet of sorts unable to find balance between heaven and earth.. love and purpose and so on. It’s also about an aspect of the writing process and inspiration; the artist begging their muse for something real and true.”
Also released with “April” is a cover of Roxy Music’s debut single “Virginia Plain”.
Below is the video for the title track.
Coming up in early July is the new 2-track single “Strange Violence”. More singles and music videos will be readied for release over the next year.
The project was started in 2021 by the former frontman of the post-punk act Precious Bones. He was soon joined by Santos Menendez on keyboards and synths, Mark McClemens (Goon Saloon/Porch Rockers) on the bass, Peter Quilla (Vigilante Cowboys) on the guitar, and Eddy Enzyme Salek (The Misfits) on drums.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
