Hear Jarboe's Eerie, Ritualistic New Song "Man of Hate"

Former Swans singer and A Perfect Circle, Neurosis, Philip Anselmo collaborator preps 33rd solo album

From her indelible work with Swans to her prolific solo output to her collaborations with A Perfect Circle, Philip Anselmo, Neurosis, Justin Broadrick, Cattle Decapitation and many more, Jarboe has proven herself to be a formidable, shape-shifting artist. Her latest offering is her 33rd — yes, 33rd — solo album, Illusory, due April 17th via Consouling Sounds. (It's available for pre-order now.) "Illusory is a Buddhist way regarding the illusion of the self/illusion of perception of reality," Jarboe has said of the overarching theme of the seven-track LP. Today (April 9th), she's teamed with Revolver to unveil standout cut "Man of Hate" and it's stark, captivating music video.

"'Man of Hate' is an ode to an Elizabethan play set before Lord Misery and Lady Destiny and their court," Jarboe comments. "The scenes are described by the narrator and the actors chime in, including cherubs who repeatedly sing true love in the face of hate. As the audience shouts bravo, all are beheaded."
