Sweet Crude recently released their new album Créatures through Rhyme & Reason Records on April 21st. It is now for purchase on vinyl and CD here and digitally here. Fans can also stream the album in full on Spotify.
Sweet Crude is a young 6-piece composed of New Orleans musicians creating a sound that sets English and Louisiana’s native French dialect to decidedly non-Cajun music. The band, boasting surnames like Marceaux and Chachere, seeks to reconnect with their lineage in the context of 5-part harmonies, tribal rhythms, and pop hooks.
Sweet Crude debuted in Spring 2013 and have hit the ground running. Music from their EP Super Vilaine can be heard in FX’s American Horror Story and the band has been receiving generous amounts of plays nationally and internationally on public, satellite and internet radio.  Sweet Crude has tested their frenetic sound on the road, packing venues across the country. They have been praised and featured with publications such as Consequence of Sound, Washington Post, Marie Claire, Brooklyn Vegan, FUSE, PopMatters, and more.

KING 810 at Rex Theater on 6/10, Band Drops Controversial Video for “La Petite Mort”

KING 810 will embark on a series of limited engagement live events next month for their latest album, LA PETITE MORT OR A CONVERSATION WITH GOD, which will include a unique performance each night that will captivate its audiences in their intensely personal and often contentious world.

 

The band recently launched Part 1 of ‘THIS IS KING,’ an episodic documentary piece which gives fans an unfiltered look into their lives and performances. For future episodes of ‘THIS IS KING,’ fans can subscribe to the band’s YouTube.

 

Also, PHub, the premier online destination for adult entertainment, debuted the NSFW music video for “La Petite Mort.” The clip is the first to incorporate on-screen sex in an 8-minute long music video. The video, which was shot in Los Angeles and directed by the band’s own David Gunn, is a provocative piece of erotica featuring adult film stars Jenna Foxx, Jasmine Summers, Amber Ivy, Lily Jordan, Alex Legend and Jake Jace. “La Petite Mort,” which refers to “The Little Death” (the sensation of orgasm as likened to death), is matched with explicit visuals in the official video conjuring the darkness and desperation of sexuality.

 

“A lot of the ideas for our videos came together in the song writing process. This one was no exception,” said Gunn. “The record touches on sex in a lot of ways. It used to be that sex and rock and roll went hand in hand, but that archetype has been reconstructed over the years to make way for a safe/tame/boring/politically correct culture, which we have never belonged to. It’s sad that something so inherent and necessary has become taboo, but we have done what we always do and that is to follow the art wherever it must go regardless of how uncharted the territory may be.”

 

The always provocative band will appear at Rex Theater in Pittsburgh, PA on 6/10.
