THE PALACE OF TEARS - Unveils Debut Album, Available For Streaming In Its Entirety

Ethereal darkwave duo The Palace Of Tears has unveiled their new album, Of Ruination. Of Ruination is seven tracks of somber beauty and otherworldly seduction. The Palace Of Tears fuses hypnotic electronics, heavily layered processed guitars and sultry vocals that captivate, creating an ethereal amalgam that transcends boundaries.

The duo's unique alchemy draws upon musical influences as varied as post-punk, shoegaze, dark ambient, gothic rock, electronica and much more. The Palace Of Tears create their own sonic landscape full of haunting beauty - ghostly - evocative - sensual. Of Ruination is available now everywhere digitally, soon to be followed by a limited CD edition. Check out the album video teaser and as well you can hear the entire thing in the players below.

Leah's vocals create a swoon of dream-felt caresses into the heart of the human psyche, weaving and layering lullabies of sensual longing into each moment, while Erick's dense swirl of ghost - layered guitars and atmospheric electronics conjure a sonic spell of aural mist to soothe the listener into its lush ambience.

Both artists collaboratively bring to the table a plethora of diverse experiences in the creative performance world, with influences from theater, dance, circus, opera, and butoh. Vocalist Leah Darkling, a New Orleans native, brings a varied and textured approach to her singing and song writing, pulling from her many disciplines in the performing arts. On a trek out to Europe, seeking broader horizons, it was in Berlin, Germany that she first met multi-instrumentalist Erick R Scheid. Link
