The song “Radiation” is the second electrifying post-punk cut that Ultrviolence has shared from their forthcoming Black Sea EP, which comes out May 13th via Northern Light Records. Calgary’s dark wave, post-punk trio Ultrviolence are a must-hear.

For over a decade, Ultrviolence has been building its characteristic moody, post-punk sound purely on DIY principles: in basements filled with battered instruments, blinking electronics, and swirls of electrical cables, the trio has been steadily writing, playing, and recording its own material with little reliance on external influence. Their immersive sound is built on the augmentation of a dark wave foundation, the music echoing from countless hours of work alone in prairie solitude, hunched over instruments, hard at work on their form.

Tour Dates:

05/13 – Vancouver, BC – The Emerald
05/16 – Nelson, BC – The Royal
05/18 – Regina, SK – McNallys

Born in 2003, V13 was a socio-political website that, in 2005, morphed into PureGrainAudio and spent 15 years developing into one of Canada's (and the world’s) leading music sites. On the eve of the site’s 15th anniversary, a full re-launch and rebrand takes us back to our roots and opens the door to a full suite of Music, Film, TV, and Cultural content.
