INDUSTRIAL GODFATHER MARTIN ATKINS TEAMS WITH PLANET B ON NEW SINGLE "COME BOGEYMAN"; THE QUIETUS PREMIERES VIDEO; IPECAC RECORDINGS TO RELEASE DEBUT ALBUM NOVEMBER 23rd
Planet B presents the video for new single "Come Bogeyman" featuring Martin Atkins (Ministry, Killing Joke, Public Image Limited, Pigface, and more), taken from the San Diego duo's self-titled debut album, coming November 23rd on Ipecac Recordings.
Watch now, via The Quietus:
Planet B is the collaboration of Justin Pearson (member of The Locust, Retox, and Dead Cross, and founder of Three One G Records) and producer Luke Henshaw. Pearson's electrifying vocals meet Henshaw's sonic feast of hip-hop, industrial, and film score influences. The sound transcends genres: dark, heavy, urgent, and anthemic, it is equally relevant in the contexts of hardcore punk and hip-hop.
Guests on the album include Atkins, hip-hop pioneer Kool Keith, members of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Locust, The VSS, and more.
Pre-order Planet B, here:
"Justin Pearson has made his name with spazzy, noisy weirdo-rock outfits like The Locust, Retox and Dead Cross, but his project Planet B – a collaboration with hip-hop producer Luke Henshaw – might be his most left-field yet. The duo smashes together strains of hardcore, hip-hop, industrial and old-school horror movie scores... It's head-spinning and head-splitting in the best way possible."
"[Planet B] applies an electronic edge to the grindy noise freakouts of Justin’s other bands... A new musical direction."
"Icon of independence since the early ‘90s, Justin Pearson obeys no one’s rules. Vocalist, bassist, record label owner, author, and actor, the born leader has made a career of staying one step ahead, confounding both the mainstream and the underground in the process."
