Alien Sex Fiend present their brand-new studio album, ‘Possessed’. The latest outer-sonic instalment of their 35 year trip into the far out and unthinkable.

The first new album since 2010’s hugely successful ‘Death Trip’, and heavily dosed with ASF’s genre-defying collage of pounding beats, speaker-shredding guitars, Mrs Fiend’s mutant analogue synthesisers and the surrealist chainsaw-psychiatry of frontman Nik Fiend, ‘Possessed’ is a remarkable return. The unrelenting highs of ‘Shit’s Coming Down’ and ‘Carcass’…. The spaced out soundscapes of ‘Ghost In The Machine’ and the haunting ‘Neutron’…. The pulsating insistence of the epic, eleven minute ‘It’s In My Blood’ and an anthem-for-the-fucked by the name of ‘Invisible’…… this is the Fiends at their blood-curdling, mind-expanding best. TNT for the brain and battery acid for the flagging soul.

Legendary, much loved and described by Kris Needs as ‘A British institution’, Alien Sex Fiend command a reputation and a longevity few can match; ‘Possessed’ takes that reputation for horror, humour and explorations of inner turmoil and outer space to the next level – an intoxicating lesson from the originals. The list of artists inspired by the Fiends’ unique brew of heavy, lysergic sonic alchemy – whether they knew it or not – is a long one… but Alien Sex Fiend are all those in the know have ever needed.

Issued on CD and gatefold Double LP – both of which include format exclusive mixes and swathes of Nik Fiend artwork – ‘Possessed’ explores the Fiends’ taste for barrier-breaking audio and visual experimentation. Eagerly anticipated by the band’s legion of followers, this is music to comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable. And now it’s here. Enjoy. Have IT.

‘Possessed’ will be preceded by the teaser track ‘Shit’s Coming Down’ – watch the skies in mid-October.

Alien Sex Fiend are available for your interview and press needs via the Cherry Red press office.
