French post-noise/avant-garde merchants CHAOS E.T. SEXUAL unveil disruptive new video « Tomorrow, Prudence »; new album out now on Chien Noir.
France’s most subversive post-noise/industrial/avant-garde merchants CHAOS E.T. SEXUAL share a cold and disruptive video for « Tomorrow, Prudence » today on Echoes & Dust website. Dealing with the dread of exile and forced migrations, the song is taken from their new album ‘Only Human Crust’, released this fall on Chien Noir.
Directed by Hélène Hingant from My Fish Is Fresh studio, « Tomorrow Prudence » rolls out a wild range of feelings dealing with topics such as exile and migration.Thomas Humbert (guitar, vocals) explains: « The song title mixes the names of two ships : Tomorrow is the hospital ship that characters desperately try to join in the movie « Les Fils de l’Homme », and Prudence is a Doctors Without Borders ship used to rescue people in the Mediterranean Sea. The lyrics are about modern societies outsiders, in particular people running away from their home country and trying to escape by crossing the Mediterranean Sea. »

While first video « La Française Des Jeunes » mocked French politics and « 1674 – Now: Many Thousand Gone » openly condemned slavery, their third video « Asile » conveyed a strong feeling of oppression and discomfort, one to be experienced throughout the whole album.
CHAOS E.T. SEXUAL‘s new album ‘Only Human Crust’ takes you through a disturbing urban jungle studded with political speeches and deconstructed bits of daily life. From that intolerant, industrial and oppressive scenery, emerges an unlikely blackened dub euphoria. Nine tracks that highlight the modern world’s chaos and darkness in a highly compelling and intoxicating way. The French trio’s music is a bold fusion of alternative genres such as electronic music, industrial metal and hip-hop. Think Godflesh, Dälek, Neurosis and Techno Animal being involved in a gruesome transe amidst a deranging world.
Recorded and mixed by the band and mastered by Chris Fielding (Conan) at Skyhammer Studio, ‘Only Human Crust’ was issued on November 20th through Chien Noir on 2xLP, CD and digital format, with an album artwork designed by French artist Ëmgalaï.
CHAOS E.T. SEXUAL ‘Only Human Crust’
Available now on 2xLP, CD and digital via Chien Noir
French underground’s most loyal members since 2010, CHAOS E.T. SEXUAL is an ambitious project mixing massive drone/industrial soundscapes and hip-hop/noise-laden beats to produce a hybrid songcraft. Highly sensitive to anything visual and improv-related, the band always offer a live set that involves visual artists or video makers. Bass frequencies out loud, cold mechanical beats and sci-fi topics infused with political speeches that are disrupting the auditive approach, making it a subversive yet highly engaging sonic experience.
Following their dark experimentations infused with urban beats, CHAOS E.T. SEXUAL have issued two self-released albums: ‘Ov’ (2012) and ‘Ovna’ (2013). The band’s third effort ‘Only Human Crust’ is far more more politically engaged than the previous records, with nine tracks that highlight the modern world’s chaos and darkness, in the most compelling and intoxicating way. About ‘Only Human Crust’, the band says: « Laurent Gaudé’s book Eldorado, that tells several stories linked with the crossing of the Mediterranean Sea by migrants, inspired us a lot, we realised that we shared the same topics, these are about capitalist totalitarism and the different kinds of control, addiction an intolerance coming out of our contemporary societies. You can see all of this through Ëmgalaï Grafik’s artwork. » Recorded and mixed by CHAOS E.T. SEXUAL and mastered by Chris Fielding (Conan), ‘Only Human Crust’ is available now via Chien Noir on LP, CD digipack and digital.
