With the anxiously anticipated Stranger To Violence – the second LP by NYC-based Psalm Zero – nearing July release via Profound Lore Records, the band has premiered the first single from the album, “Pay Tomorrow.”

With guest appearances by members of Epistasis, Black Anvil, and more joining the core delivery of bassist/vocalist/keyboardist/composer Charlie Looker and the (now ex-) guitarist Andrew Hock, Stranger To Violence was recorded by Caley Monahn-Ward and Charlie Looker, mastered by James Plotkin, and features art and design by Zev Deans.

Bursting from the opening note with one of the most infectious hooks Stranger To Violence offers, “Pay Tomorrow” soars with Psalm Zero’s signature clean vocal approach and is wrought with penetrating standout synth and guitar elements, bells, and more.
