About this item

Hercules & Love Affair’s new album ‘The Feast Of The Broken Heart’ sees another musical reinvention from ringmaster Andy Butler, delivered by an impeccable new line up.

Brits nominee John Grant’s ability for translating hardship into elegance is writ large on ‘I Try To Talk To You’ and ‘Liberty’; Rouge Mary, whose deep, spiritual voice is hewn from a gospel education; Belgian singer Gustaph, whose counter tenor takes lead on the single ‘Do You Feel The Same?’; smoky voiced virtuoso Krystle Warren, who was introduced to Butler by Grant, and sings the provocative ‘My Offence’.

The old school house production sounding almost techno aesthetic, coupled with tales of emotional triumph, makes for something tough yet soulful; meaningful house music that’s pop music, speaking to the most musically adroit of tastes.

‘The Feast Of The Broken Heart’ is co-produced by Ha-Ze Factory and industrial stalwart Mark Pistel.
