News Psychedelic Porn Crumpets announce fifth album ‘Night Gnomes’

Listen to new tracks ‘Bubblegum Infinity’ and ‘Dread and Butter’ now.

Following the release ‘Shyga! The Sunlight Mound’ last year, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets have announced their fifth album ‘Night Gnomes’, set for release one 22nd April via Marathon Artists / What Reality? Records.

“The process for this album was a continuation from Shyga! I stepped up a few recording techniques and tried to hone in on the production side of things a little more, gave my mental train a fresh lick of paint and tried to make the album step up in quality from the previous four releases while still holding onto that ‘crumpet’ approach to songwriting,” Jack McEwan says. “In my mind it feels like a summary of everything we’ve previously released, a nice package for new fans to enjoy but also a nod to the ‘High Visceral’ days for the older fans.”

Sharing new singles ‘Bubblegum Infinity’ and ‘Dread and Butter’ alongside the news, Jack says of ‘Bubblegum Infinity’, “Our cute little playful member of the Night Gnomes club. I think there’s mixed opinions of this song in the group but I’m sticking by it. I like its pop sensibility and melancholy notions. It’s cheerful and good natured, it’s not trying to be something profound, more a statement of life at this time and by calling it ‘Bubblegum Infinity’, we’re showcasing that lighthearted vulnerability. So go easy on us, metal fans.

“A lot of the album is about trying to work out what the F#@! is going on, in general life and obviously the period of time we’ve all found ourselves dormant in for the past two years. I started reading a few quotes from philosophers because, hey! They might know what’s going on, but mostly it was a bunch of cleverly worded gibberish that was drenched in self turmoil that thankfully, serendipitously, unbeknownst to me was the thing I found comfort in. That nobody has a clue what life is and we’re all winging it as we go! Cheers, William of Ockham.”
