Austin, Texas’ Dread Risks unveils its first single and music video since signing to Re:Mission Entertainment in early July 2021. Entitled “Trauma Ties”, the single formally releases on August 20th, opening pre-order to the limited edition “Trauma Ties” remix maxi-single CD available Friday at the Re:Mission Entertainment Bandcamp Page. The single, mixed and mastered by Ritchard F. Napierkowski, will also be available on all major streaming platforms with a digital Bandcamp option.
The band teamed with Erik Gustafson, for Erik Gustafson Cinematography, who directed, filmed, and edited the video. The band states of the video and partnership: “We wanted to release a more cinematic piece for this track versus a performance video, and we knew Erik could take our concepts and help capture and shape a memorable but terrifying experience. The song and video are gritty and hopeless, and we wanted to kick off our 2nd full-length (date TBA) in an aggressive and cerebral way.” Dread Risks also teamed with actor Marshall Faulkner, who starred in the video and assisted in the storycrafting.
Hailing from Austin, TX, and formed in 2018, Dread Risks offers a bleak electro-industrial soundscape with more aggressive elements more commonly found in aggrotech and industrial metal. The two-piece consists of Kris O. on vocals and Eric R. on live audio/visual experience, with both members sharing music production duties.
“Dread Risks is the boil-over point where anxiety and sinking thought patterns plateau and reside in relentless but silent panic. Dream-state consequences far exceed the true determinations. The soundtrack is an accompany-piece to emotional submission, implosion, and unrealized vengeance.”
Dread Risks will be releasing a series of singles, remixes, and a full-length album on Re:Mission Entertainment in 2021.
