The Vancouver-based post-punk act Spectres is back with another new single from their upcoming album: “AM Gold”. The single acts as a teaser for the band’s new album “Presence“, which is set for worldwide release on March 15th, 2024. It’s the band’s first release since 2021’s “Hindsight”.
Emerging originally from the DIY Punk underground in 2005, overtime the band’s vocalist and founder Brian Gustavson wanted to blend anarcho-punk with 1980’s post punk and death rock. and though the band’s output has matured with time to embrace a wider range of new-wave and shoegaze influences their ethos remains rooted in anarcho punk.
After working with several different DIY labels over their first 12 years, as a band Spectres signed with Artoffact records in the summer of 2018. Spectres is Brian Gustavson (vocals), Zach Batalden (guitar), Mitch Allen (drums), Adam Mitchell (guitar) and Jason Renix (bass).
