Though known for their extreme metal output over the decades, Relapse Records continues to thrive as a label given the eclectic selections one can find among their catalog. Among their standout acts is KING WOMAN, a creative powerhouse helmed by Kris Esfandiari, who now announce the arrival of the much anticipated sophomore record, Celestial Blues.


Arriving on July 30th, Celestial Blues comes forth with a unique approach to visuals by Nedda Afsari, Collin Fletcher, and Jamie Parkhurst, speaking to the audiovisual investment placed within the composition. Lead single Morning Star provides but a taste of the dreamlike textures that radiate from KING WOMAN's sonic palette. Kris' vocal melodies swoon the listener while the lush instrumentation hypnotize the listener, making this one release to put high on your radar.
