Secret Society’s highly anticipated third album, Real Enemies, will be out September 30 on New Amsterdam Records and is now available for pre-order via Bandcamp. The first single, “Best Friends Forever” (featuring Rob Wilkerson on alto saxophone) is streaming now.
Real Enemies is an 80-minute, 13-chapter exploration of America’s fascination with conspiracy theories. As befitting a journey into postwar paranoia, the music draws heavily on 12-tone techniques, but the wide-ranging score exhibits a gleeful disregard for how those techniques have traditionally been deployed.
My co-conspirators and I cannot wait for you to hear it.
