They are a band known for crossing borders, overstepping genre taboos and keeping the (metal) world in suspense: Today, French avantgarde black metallers CELESTE take their immersive experience one step closer to the edge: January 28th will see the release of the band's new longplayer "Assassine(s)", produced by Chris Edrich (GOJIRA, TESSERACT, THE OCEAN, LEPROUS)  and a long awaited follow-up to 2017's "Infidèle(s)". With their unique mix of black metal, sludge and post hardcore, and over 500 shows played since their inception in 2005, CELESTE have cemented their status as one of France's most important underground acts, and now deliver the first single off their upcoming piece of art, "Assassine(s)":
Driven by almost djenty rhythms, the band instantly prove their subtlety on this first excerpt 'Des Torrents De Coups' and brings overwhelming emotions through bleak yet occasionally blissful soundscapes.

"We're glad to unleash our first single", CELESTE states. "This track is the first one we've started writing for the new album, but it's also one of the last we've finished. It's pretty representative of the reflexion we had all along the creation process of 'ASSASSINE(S)', I hope you'll enjoy the new sonorities and our new approach of the songwriting.
This epic song is coming with the videoclip it deserves, 'Des Torrents de coups' is the first part of a video triptych to be released in the coming months, produced in collaboration with video artist Gregoire Orio. Those videoclips totally emphasize our well know imagery."
