Mimi Barks has today announced the upcoming release of her long awaited debut album ‘THIS IS DOOM TRAP’. The Doom Trap artist who enjoyed a successful 2023 playing career defining performances at Download Festival, 2000 Trees Festival and Graspop will release her anticipated album on Friday 26th September 2024 via Silent Cult.

“The Awakening or the pain-body? ‘THIS IS DOOM TRAP’. Welcome to a sonic journey through my pain-body and a guide on how to deal with it,” explains Mimi Barks as she refers to her upcoming album. “The only way out is through. But everything is Rhythm and you’ll find yourself where you began eventually, on a slightly higher plane with new but similar challenges.”

‘THIS IS DOOM TRAP’ has producer credits such as MorgothBeatz (Machine Gun Kelly, Travis Barker), Brian Spencer (Slipknot, Scarlxrd) and Kenny Graves (Stitches, HXXXD, and Cody Manson) and is being previewed today with the release of Mimi Barks’ brand-new single ‘FSU’ (short for Fuck Shit Up). This is the first piece of new music that Mimi Barks has released since her critically acclaimed mixtape ‘DEADGIRL’ (December 2022). Stream it here or watch the official music video below.

Talking about her new single Mimi Barks shares, “Things must end for a new door to open and the wrong door will close for the right path to be revealed. It’s funny how I wrote this track inspired by me constantly fucking up relationships with people I engage or work with. As a butterfly can cause a storm by flapping its wings several weeks earlier, with my wings… much more like those of a Pterosaurs. Makes me wonder if I’m the mad person or if I’m just following the path that’s been laid out for me, playing my part in this chaos theory.”

The Doom Trap Icon has enjoyed a successful rise over the last few years while sharing her relentless stage presence across the UK and Europe, appearing at festivals like Download, 2000 Trees, Graspop and Full Force as well as joining tours with rock giants Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, Combichrist and Saint Agnes. She graced the front cover of Kerrang! Magazine shortly after being awarded with ‘The Disrupter’ award at the official Kerrang! Awards 2022 and had a world premiere from Daniel P. Carter on the BBC Radio 1 Rock Show with her single ‘ASHES’ which appeared on the DEADGIRL Mixtape.

With her dark vision translating across multiple platforms, she had huge support from the likes of Nels Hylton and Alyx Holcombe at BBC Radio 1, Alex Baker and Johnny Doom of Kerrang Radio while also receiving high praise from the likes of Rock Sound, Revolver Magazine, LOUDER, Distorted Sound Magazine, Bring The Noise and Knotfest who shared their own outlook on the ‘DEADGIRL’ Mixtape, “DEADGIRL seems to have a personal chronology. The progression of the songs seems to begin with you at your darkest and culminate with you coming into your own – emerging from the trauma.”
