Wednesday 2nd October
It's hard to find words to describe how excited we are about that one. Fantôme and Nuit are teaming up for the first time, and we're bringing you one of our favorite artists on the planet right now. Yep.
Lingua Ignota (USA, Profound Lore)
Hailing from Rhode Island (US), Kristin Hayter Lingua Ignota has delivered with 2017's "All Bitches Die"
one of the most vital records heard in the extreme music scene for a long time. Reissued by Profound Lore
in 2018, her work hasn't stopped to spread around the world since.
Her new album "Caligula" is out this summer on Profound Lore and his an unreal work, pushing boundaries
even further than its predecessor while reuniting a wide range of collaborators from some of the best of
US's metal and noise scene (The Body, Full Of Hell, Uniform, The Rita).
Lingua Ignota's unique blend of rough Industrial Metal infused with Noise and strong vocal influences
(think Baroque, think Hildegard Von Bingen) carries an essential message : the one of survivors.
Lingua Ignota adresses abuse, domestic violence and power dynamics in a unique way that is as innovative
as it is vengeful. We're thrilled and humbled to be hosting someone who we believe is one of the most vital
voices in extreme music at the moment. Expect to reach new heights of body crushing music, expect a noise
induced cleansing, expect beauty and wrath in their purest forms.

LINGUA IGNOTA SHARES A NEW SINGLE, AND REVEALS HEADLINE EUROPEAN TOUR DATES
Her visceral new track “Do You Doubt Me Traitor” appears on her latest album, CALIGULA, out July 19 on Profound Lore
As the utterly arresting new LINGUA IGNOTA album CALIGULA approaches this July on Profound Lore, we are delighted to reveal headline live dates incoming this September/October including three shows in Amsterdam with AMENRA - full itinerary below.
LISTEN TO LINGUA IGNOTA'S HARROWING NEW SINGLE, “DO YOU DOUBT ME TRAITOR”
On her new album CALIGULA, Lingua Ignota takes Kristin Hayter’s vision to a new level of grandeur, purging her and vengeful audial vision going beyond anything preceding it and reaching a new unparalleled sonic plane. Eschewing and disavowing genre altogether, Hayter builds her own world. She fully embodies the moniker Lingua Ignota, from the German mystic Hildegard of Bingen, meaning “unknown language” — this music has no home, any precedent or comparison could only be uneasily given, and there is nothing else like it in our contemporary realm.
Due out July 19th, CALIGULA finds Hayter at the peak of her powers as a vocalist, composer, and storyteller. The album refuses to settle in any known lane, instead opting to tackle massive scopes and influences spanning across time and place. One thing remains unchanged, though: Hayter continues to explore themes of violence and vengeance through a survivalist narrative that is equal parts chilling and empowering.
Working closely with Seth Manchester at Machines With Magnets studio in Rhode Island, Hayter strips away much of the industrial and electronic elements of her previous work. Channeling the menacing intensity of her live performances, Hayter utilised unconventional recording techniques and live instrumentation to bring a frenetic energy to CALIGULA.
Pooling talent from Sam McKinlay (THE RITA), visceral drummer Lee Buford (The Body) and frenetic percussionist Ted Byrnes (Cackle Car, Wood & Metal), with guest vocals from Dylan Walker (Full of Hell), Mike Berdan (Uniform), and Noraa Kaplan (Visibilities), CALIGULA is a massive work, a multi-layered epic that gives voice and space to that which has been silenced and cut out.
