The Psychotic Monks bring their behemothic live show and the riotous, darkly romantic sound of their latest album, Private Meaning First, to Bootleg Social.
Working in complete isolation deep in the Southern French countryside in the thick of the pandemic, the Parisian noise-rockers have crafted an album that expertly runs the gamut from despair, mania and paranoia, through to palpable rage and steel-bending frustration. An artfully explosive catharsis in sound.
The band’s live shows are now renowned for their uncompromising nature. Expect a no holds barred night that will console and destroy in equal measure. As their only defined influence, Francis Bacon, once said: “in order for the light to shine so brightly, the darkness must be present.” The Psychotic Monks are experts at finding this balance, and they relish living in the space between the two.
