Toronto-based duo Dermabrasion are set to release their debut full length, Pain Behaviour, on January 26th 2024 via Hand Drawn Dracula. A fascination with the corporeal form and the occult thread through the record, with allusions to Roman Catholicism, LaVeyan Satanism and genre fiction the songs investigate shame, power, duty and inhabiting a human body. The album’s statement is honed to a menacing edge with a sound swinging in the directions of first wave and contemporary post-punk, industrial and NWOBHM. To go alongside the album announcement, the band have today shared the lead single & video from the album, Halberdier

The video is a frenzied series of clips captured by members of the crowd at a generator show in Toronto’s east end this past summer. Under a single bulb’s light the band and crowd writhe among a pile of industrial dirt from more than 10 different perspectives pasted and strung together in a kaleidoscopic mess.
