"Vancouver’s brilliant post-punk and new-wave quartet ACTORS continue their flair for sonic cinematics in the video for their latest track 'Face Meets Glass'... The atmosphere quivers with singer Jason Corbett’s crooning reverb augmented by shivering guitars and stark synths."
"Addictively dancey, uplifting and melancholy sounds... Beautiful, dark music."
"Eighties-style post-punk... marrying influences from metal in the post-punk style."
–The Joy of Violent Movement
ACTORS' music video for new song "Face Meets Glass" has made its debut today via scene authority Post-Punk.com.
A surreal, stylish clip, revealing an ambiguous story of suicidal limo passengers, the "Face Meets Glass" video nods to directors like David Lynch and Nicholas Winding Refn, both of whom ACTORS frontman Jason Corbett has named as influences on his music and vision. The video was directed by Kira Clavell.
ACTORS' new album It Will Come to You will be released this Friday, March 9th, on Artoffact Records. Pre-order digital, vinyl, CD:
The album's anthemic songs evoke the urgency of early-'80s U2 (Boy, October, War) as well as the driving, synth-drenched scores that emanated from that era's movie screens. Songs like "L'appel du Vide," "Slaves," and "Face Meets Glass" are bangers that glisten via frontman Jason Corbett's production job: slamming beats propel warm layers of synth, guitar, and vocals. Corbett writes, produces, mixes, and masters all ACTORS music at his own Vancouver studio, Jacknife Sound.
ACTORS will be touring the US, Canada, and Europe, throughout 2018, starting with a hometown album release show this Saturday, March 10th.
