BIO

PORTRAYAL OF GUILT SIGN TO RUN FOR COVER RECORDS

ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM CHRISTF***** — OUT NOVEMBER 5

SHARE NEW SINGLE “POSSESSION”

TOURING THE U.S. THIS FALL WITH UNIFORM & MORE

On CHRISTF*****, Portrayal of Guilt plunge headfirst into unfathomable depths, creating a work of art that’s powerfully unsettling. “We think of it partially in the sense of scoring a horror movie,” guitarist/vocalist Matt King says. “We wanted to create an atmosphere of anxiety and fear.”

We each have our own idea of what it means to live through a period filled with perpetual dread, a slowly burning world, and overwhelming darkness. In the case of Portrayal of Guilt, their tortuous afterlife comes with grief, loss, masochism, suffering, and pain.

The entirety of CHRISTF***** is set to unrelenting, nihilistic, howling soundscapes, created by King, drummer James Beveridge, and bassist, Alex Stanfield. By way of hypnotic guitar patterns, industrial rhythms and oppressive heaviness —  each track tells a story set in the darkest of settings for the listener to interpret and explore.

It’s their second full-length of 2021 following January’s acclaimed album, We Are Always Alone. This time around, Portrayal of Guilt have signed to Run For Cover and joined forces with prominent NYC producer Ben Greenberg (Uniform, Pharmakon, Bing & Ruth). CHRISTF***** features guest vocals from Jenna Rose of New York darkwave outfit Anatomy (on “Sadist”) and Touché Amoré vocalist Jeremy Bolm (on “Fall From Grace”).

CHRISTF***** is out November 5 on Run For Cover — pre-order it here. Next month, Portrayal of Guilt is back on the road for the first time since the pandemic and the release of We Are Always Alone. Highlights include a full run with Uniform and dates with Sheer Mag, Code Orange and more. See below for a full list of dates and go here to purchase tickets.
