Lingua Ignota has announced her new album SINNER GET READY is set to arrive on August 6 via Sargent House, her first album on the label. It will feature 9 tracks including the newly released single “PENNSYLVANIA FURNACE.” The hauntingly beautiful track refers to the legend of an 18th-century ironmaster whose dogs return to drag him down to hell after he throws them all into his furnace in a rage. Its accompanying visual was directed by the singer, also known as Kristin Hayter, providing beautiful imagery of rural Pennsylvania. Check it out below.
The new album serves as the follow-up to her critically acclaimed debut CALIGULA, released in 2019. SINNER GET READY is described as an unsettling portrait of devotion and betrayal, judgment and consequence, set in the derelict landscape of rural Pennsylvania, a neglected region deeply embedded with a particular god-fearing brand of Christianity. Hayter was living while making the record. Fans can preorder the album and merchandise on her website.
Earlier this year, she contributed to Bandcamp Friday by releasing her song AGNUS DEI. Ignota is also a part of the newly formed band Slightless Pit, alongside Lee Buford of The Body and Dylan Walker of Full of Hell. They released their debut in February 21 of last year.
