  • Violet Poison and Giorgio Gigli will release an album titled The Long Decline under their new Black Tears alias. The Italian pair are well-known to fans of moody, experimental techno. They formerly co-managed Zooloft, a deep techno imprint that operated between 2009 and 2012. Violet Poison also produces more dance floor-focused material as Obtane, while Giorgio Gigli primarily operates under his birth name. They're no strangers to working in the studio together, having co-produced several 12-inches in the past few years. Judging by the samples on SoundCloud, The Long Decline features a harsher and more abrasive sound than much of what Violet Poison and Giorgio Gigli have made together in the past. The album features 11 tracks, treading the line between noise, post-punk and techno. It's vinyl-only and due out on Veleno Viola. You can hear snippets via the player below.
