ACTORS: BrooklynVegan premieres “Cold Eyes” video off Vancouver post-punks’ new album “Acts of Worship” – WATCH HERE
Vancouver band ACTORS has released new single “Cold Eyes” and revealed the song’s official music video via an exclusive premiere with BrooklynVegan.
“Cold Eyes” appears on the stunning new album, Acts of Worship, out October 1st on Artoffact Records. Pre-order the album, HERE!
ACTORS vocalist/guitarist/producer Jason Corbett states: “‘Cold Eyes’ was written and recorded in one day. Sometimes that just happens and it ends up being the band’s favorite song on the new album. We can’t wait to play it live!” A North American tour booked for Fall is being rescheduled now; stand by for updates.
ACTORS’ 2018 album, It Will Come to You, also released on Artoffact, put the band’s moody, anthemic style on the map, earning these words from Post-Punk.com: “Vancouver’s brilliant post-punk and new-wave quartet ACTORS continue their flair for sonic cinematics… The atmosphere quivers with singer Jason Corbett’s crooning reverb augmented by shivering guitars and stark synths.” Three years later, the follow-up is poised to break hearts and set fire to dance floors. Acts of Worship is an album of driving beats, massive hooks, and dramatic atmospheres – equally melancholy and electrifying, it plays like the soundtrack to an imaginary Michael Mann film.
Corbett points to legends who changed the face of pop music in their day – David Bowie, Roxy Music, Duran Duran – as inspirations. “It’s about embracing who you are and having the confidence to do what you feel and not be afraid,” he says.
Acts of Worship was produced by Corbett at his own Jacknife Sound in Vancouver; his sonic sculpting is a major component of ACTORS’ sound, as well as the sounds of other artists like Bootblacks and SPECTRES. The album sees the debut of new bassist Kendall Wooding and Corbett notes that the current lineup, completed by synth player Shannon Hemmett and drummer Adam Fink, perfectly reflects the balance of masculine and feminine energy contained within the songs.
