Atlanta power trio Whores. have debuted an all-new single titled “Mental Illness as Mating Ritual” today! It is the third track we’ve heard from the band off their forthcoming debut LP.

“‘Mental Illness as Mating Ritual’ is a super personal song,” says frontman and guitarist Christian Lembach. “It’s sort of about four different things: parallel universes, health care, circuses and laundry. Everyone experiences suffering at some point, and some people hurt so much and for so long that a healthy and fulfilling life can feel like it’s make-believe.”

Whores. will release Gold on October 28th, 2016 via Entertainment One (eOne), the first for their new label home. Gold will be available overseas via SPV. The debut LP was recorded at Parhelion Studios with producer Ryan Boesch (Helmet, Fu Manchu, Melvins) The band is also revealing the artwork for Gold done by Patrick Copeland.
