VENTENNER ANNOUNCE NEW SINGLE – KILLING JAR

London industrial rock front runners have announced the second part to their 2018 double single release, due for release September 14th on Syndicol Music.

The follow up to previous single 'Ataxia', this second part sees Ventenner taking the music in a more restrained and progressive direction while retaining their trade mark aggression, electronic atmospherics and lyrical themes. Killing Jar changes the traditional verse/chorus format, instead opting for longer and more sprawling approach to the song structure. 

"We didn't set out to create a deliberate antithesis to Ataxia, simply more focused on channelling the creativity in a controlled way. The recording of the vocal parts on this were actually quite difficult as I deliberately had to hold back when I really didn't want to." – Charlie Dawe, vocalist.

 

'Killing Jar' is also the second single to feature newest member Cat La Chapelle on bass duties. "Having Cat on board is great. She brought a lot of creative ideas to this song. We're all pretty good at writing together now after so many years, Cat just slotted straight into that."

Both Killing Jar and Ataxia will not be appearing on any future studio albums, but the band have hinted at some form of limited edition physical format coming in the near future.

Killing Jar will be released digitally September 14th on Syndicol Music.
