Brooklyn Post-Punk Outfit Clone Reveals New Single “Redeemer”

About the “cult” of personality surrounding politics and celebrities

Brooklyn post-punk outfit Clone presents their invigorating new single “Redeemer,” which is about cult leaders and the “cult” of personality surrounding politics and celebrities. A scathing indictment of the modern obsession with the cult of personality that folks so easily create and bow down to. Hollow trends, manufactured personas, this is a cleverly-constructed sonic commentary on a world obsessed with the superficial and the emptiness that lurks beneath the surface.

“Redeemer” is the third taste of their debut CL. 1 album, following “Immutable” and “Dividing Line” with its multi-media video created by Preston Spurlock. Through their sharp guitars and penetrating vocals, this is a call to arms to see through the charade and puncture such phenomena as hero worship, hype and propaganda (and to get back to what is real).

“’Redeemer’ is about convincing yourself that betrayal can be used a form of trust. Religious groups always need a scapegoat, who has failed them, to rely on to strengthen beliefs within their core,” says LG Galleon.

“Like the smiling face on your television, it only takes a viral face to dictate policy to the people. Whether it’s Donald Trump paying homage to Hannibal Lecture or Eric Adams telling immigrants to become lifeguards because he thinks they’re good swimmers. Even the lowest level of intelligence can enthrall and convince the public with ridiculous statements.”

Clone is led by LG Galleon, best known as frontman of Dead Leaf Echo.  On this album, he is joined by NYC musicians Gregg Giufree (Pilot to Gunner), Max Idas and Dominick Turi. Live, he is joined by Paul Liziragga (Namesake) and Alex Cox (The Veldt).

The album will be released on vinyl and digitally via Portland-based Little Cloud Records and North Carolina’s 5BC Records on June 21.
