Canadian dark-pop act The Birthday Massacre have just issued a video for ‘Precious Hearts’, a song included on their current album ‘Fascination’. The clip was cut to footage filmed at a show in their home city of Toronto in October 2022 during a North American tour to promote the album, shortly before they arrived in the UK to play a long-awaited (and sold out) ten date UK tour.
TBM will be on tour in the US again from late April, with nine headlining shows bookending eleven further guest slots with Lacuna Coil. Their full itinerary can be seen below.
Formed in 2000, TBM incorporate elements of electronica, goth and new wave into their lush and atmospheric dark-pop sound. They have issued nine full-length studio records to date and had originally planned to tour their brooding and mystical eighth album, ‘Diamonds’ (2020). However, the pandemic intervened and eventually led the band to make ‘Fascination’, which was released in February 2022.
Expansive yet intimate, ‘Fascination’ is TBM’s most fully realised effort to date, with the group’s signature blend of captivating electronics, aggressive guitars, cinematic melodies and beautifully bewitching vocals on full display. The album shows that their music and the magical world it creates remains ever captivating.
