Buñuel: When God Used a Rope

Buñuel announce their new album, Killers Like Us, the third part of a trilogy which started with A Resting Place for Strangers in 2016, and continued with The Easy Way Out in 2018. The band's new material is introduced with the first single and video, When God Used A Rope.

The band is named after the immortal director Luis Buñuel whom they consider to be "the only filmmaker to first make his bones by making good on what happens when straight razors meet eyeballs." The quartet is composed of Xabier Iriondo (Afterhours), Andrea Lombardini, Francesco Valente (Il Teatro Degli Orrori, Snare Drum Exorcism,  Lume), and Eugene S. Robinson (OXBOW).

Robinson comments on the new track and age-restricted video: "The disgusting way that the human is repackaged and fetishised begs for a re-rendering that captures, at least in micro, how much of being human is mired in the ways in which we are failed animals. I'd like to think that that's what When God Used a Rope is in spirit AND actuality. I'm always understanding recorded music as a soundtrack for a movie you the listener gets to visualise. In this case: the visuals as they exist are much more potent reminders that our horrors are as ever present as our loves are endless."

On the new album Eugene remarks: "The ambiguity implied by the title where it's not entirely clear whether the killers are similar to us or just appreciate us, is nowhere in evidence in the music, which sets out to say in as clear a way as possible: your death is an inevitable consequence of you, very precisely, being YOU."

Killers Like Us comes out on February 18th, 2022 through Profound Lore Records and La Tempesta International.
