“Film Noir” comes out on February 20th on 12”’ LP and will be supported on a European tour starting on May 26th and resolving on June 3rd . Joining them on the road will be Estonia’s OCEAN DISTRICTS and German/Lithuanian act NRCSSST.
This album, sharing the same name as a cinematic genre, is driven by a mood of pessimism and menace. While working on this album, we decided to explore even more disturbing and uncomfortable topics. Alcoholism, drugs, physical and psychological abuse, manipulation…it is all a part of our everyday life. We have used real samples of some actual tragic life events to create a greater emotional impact to the listener and make him aware. This is not a casual album to listen to, but we believe that “Film Noir” will succeed to deliver the message we wanted to communicate.
In 2013 AUTISM appeared as a one-man-band studio project thanks to a music enthusiast from Lithuania known as Tomhet. AUTISM released its first mini album “Falling Motions“ and a debut album “The Crawling Chaos” all within the same year since the project was launched. Later on Tomhet was joined by a bunch of other fellow musicians: Karolis (guitar), Gediminas (bass guitar) and Domantas (drums). And since April 2016 the project officially becomes a real gigging band.
All of the recording, mixing and mastering of “Film Noir” was proudly made in AUTISM‘s own studio.
