About King Yosef and Trace Amount
King Yosef is the solo project of musician, producer and singer Tayves Yosef Pelletier from Portland, Oregon, USA. His music can be best described as a mix of noise-rap, industrial-metal and bleeding-throat metallic hardcore.
Trace Amount is the solo project of Brooklyn-based producer, vocalist, and visual artist, Brandon Gallagher. First conceived in 2019, Trace Amount took shape just before the early stages of the pandemic, but has already moulted various exoskeletons in its brief time of existence. “Simulation Fetish” will be the first new material since “Anti Body Language”, the debut full-length album released in April 2022 via Federal Prisoner, a label founded by Greg Puciato (The Dillinger Escape Plan, The Black Queen) and visual artist Jesse Draxler. The “Simulation Fetish” EP will be released in its entirety before a yet-to-be-announced April USA tour on Friday, March 22nd.
“Simulation Fetish” was mixed by Rhys Fulber of Front Line Assembly. Trace Amount will be releasing the tracks intermittently throughout another leg of international touring, featuring dates in Australia with Greg Puciato, Japan with King Yosef, and the United Kingdom again with Greg Puciato in January through March. The first track “Living Accessory” has reached all streaming platforms on Wednesday, January 10th.
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.
