Trans Atlantic art punk noir duo Mia Dean & Steve Lake will be showcasing songs from their forthcoming Blood Moon Wedding album in London on 29th July with Rites Of Hadda and Pollypikpocketz. Prior to that special performance, Blood Moon Wedding will appear twice in Bristol at Rockaway Park’s legendary Vegan Sunday Roast in Temple Cloud on the 10th July and at The Cloak and Dagger in Stokes Croft on the 23rd July. San Francisco label Mobilization is releasing the first single and video from the self-titled album later in the year, with the full album following in early 2023.

Blood Moon Wedding is a road trip of horrors through an alternate reality. Set in the sprawling deserts of the United States, Steve and Mia find themselves trapped in a shadow world, where death and love are the only way through the gates of space and time. Exploring themes of mass murder, gun violence and trauma bonding, Blood Moon Wedding is a dramatic commentary on the violence in American society.

Mia Dean is a writer and singer for the Oakland band Antler Family. She studied classical opera and performance in San Francisco with the great Metropolitan Opera mezzo-soprano, Blanche Thebom. She studied and sang opera on the great opera stages of Italy and Austria before returning to California to focus on composition and production, she also co-founded the Oakland Metro Operahouse. Steve Lake is a member of the influential Zounds, an English post-punk band fronted by Lake. Lake’s work is expansive and experimental. Beyond Zounds, he has produced and performed a number of spoken-word and multimedia events throughout Europe, including at the Edinburgh Festival.
