VICTORIAN HALLS Set To Release Hyperalgesia
New Track Premiere “Tonight Only The Dead”, Pre-Order Available for Hyperalgesia

Interview Opportunities Available With All Members

After performing at this year’s South By Southwest Festival, VICTORIAN HALLS have announced the release of their atmospheric sophomore album, Hyperalgesia, coming May 19th.  Listen to the first single “Tonight Only The Dead” now.

Headed by artistic visionary and lead vocalist/guitarist Sean Lenart, VICTORIAN HALLS made waves with their 2011 debut release Charlatan.  Critics took to Charlatan and the bands abstract approach, which quickly landed the band tastemaker international recognition and a slew of diverse music placements.  The new album, Hyperalgesia, contains all the hooks and harmonies associated with VICTORIAN HALLS with a more distinct and signature approach.  Lenart spearheaded production duties with the assistance of Joe Chiccarelli (Beck, U2, My Morning Jacket) and Ken Sluiter (Weezer, OK Go) behind the mixing board. 

Lenart explains “Hyperalgesia is more or less a statement about what we were going through while working on the record.  It always seems worse; it always feels heavier.  The last thing we wanted to do was to make something contrived.  We were not worried about the reception, and I think that allowed us to create something authentic.”  The frontman continues, “The songs had strong bones before we worked them as a band.  I had become more appreciative of theory and I was exploring multiple part harmonies, counter melodies, and constantly looking for that perfect chord.  There isn't one, and when it is, it tends to be the simplest.”

Pre-order packages are exclusively available now at VictoryMerch.com.  Starting at just $19.98, various packages include the Hyperalgesia CD with exclusive t-shirts, tank tops, baseball shirt and more.  An instant MP3 download of the track “Tonight Only The Dead” is included with every pre-order.
