The Night Terrors 'Hypnotica' Lp Launch W/ Quell, Full Fleshed & Vacuum Djs

Melbourne electrogoth legends The Night Terrors return to the Tote to launch their fourth album Hypnotica: Composition for Theremin and Electronic Music Synthesizer.

Featuring the haunting theremin melodies of Miles Brown and Sarah Lim's vintage horror synthesisers, The Night Terrors have earned a reputation as one of Australia’s most unique and original musical acts. They are also one of the only bands in the world to compose and release original music albums featuring theremin as a lead instrument.

Following the success of their celebrated 2014 pipe organ record "Pavor Nocturnus", the band went on hiatus, with Brown releasing two solo albums on legendary UK movie soundtrack label Death Waltz. Now, HYPNOTICA sees The Night Terrors return with a deeply cinematic album of haunting emotional electronics.

HYPNOTICA spotlights the unique expressive capacities of the theremin, the world's oldest and most mysterious electronic instrument. The result is a breakthrough album which establishes the theremin as a transcendent musical medium for the processing of universal heartbreak and the expression of contemporary existential terror.

See the band play selections from Hypnotica plus songs from all their classic albums at this very special event. They will be joined by special guest Mitch McGregor (Split System / No Zu) on drums, plus support from industrial electronic powerhouse Quell, future darkwave phenomenon Full Fleshed and Melbourne electropunk legends Vacuum on DJ duties in the front bar 12-3am.

"HYPNOTICA spotlights the unique expressive capacities of the theremin, materialising as a transfixing dramatic lead in an extraordinary otherworld of gothic operatics, dark mesmeric melody and euphoric spectral electro." Post Punk

Hypnotica LP is out now on Disdain Records.
