Porto based ensemble HHY & The Macumbas have announced the release of a new album titled Bom Sangue Mau, which translates from Portuguese as “good bad blood”. Due out on May 31st, their forthcoming album will also mark the inaugural release on new label Horror Vector.

Multidisciplinary artist Jonathan Uliel Saldanha, who’s at the helm of the project, and his collaborators Brendan Hemsworth, Filipe Silva, Frankão, João Pais Filipe, André Rocha and Francisco Antão, recorded the album in an empty theatre, where they set up a full arsenal of sound-systems, lighting rigs, and smoke machines to capture the raw essence of their kinetic live performances. As the press release describes, “they immersed the stage in a deep red glow, using crumpled rhythms, eerie synthesisers, wild-eyed horn sounds and serious bass pressure to build a place of dread and ascension.”

The album news comes paired with the first transcendent single, ‘Lago de Puro Êxtase’ and you can listen to it below.
