LA-based alternative dark rock collective Beauty in Chaos presents ‘Stranger’ featuring vocals by the fiery Kat Leon of Holy Wars, whose deep and personal lyrics tell the story of losing oneself amidst personal tragedy. This is the latest single from their new album ‘The Storm Before The Calm’, released via LA-based label 33.3 Music Collective on the trail of the beautiful album teaser, including a sneak peek of the bonus track featuring mezzo-soprano Adrienne LaVey. This record is the studio follow-up to the band’s critically-acclaimed debut ‘Finding Beauty in Chaos’ (2018) and ‘Beauty Re-Envisioned’ album (2019).
The video, directed by Leslie Gladney, subtlety yet cinematically portrays ‘losing oneself’, something everyone inadvertently faces at some point in their life. B.I.C. curator Michael Ciravolo and Grammy-nominated producer Michael Rozon sculpt an understated dark soundscape for Kat Leon to tell her story. Earlier, Beauty in Chaos previewed singles ‘A Kind Cruelty’ ft. Curse Mackey (Pigface, My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult, Evil Mothers) and ‘The Delicate Balance of All Things’ ft. The Mission frontman Wayne Hussey. This album also features collaborations with Ashton Nyte (The Awakening), Rafe Pearlman, Kat Leon (Holy Wars), Steven Seibold (Hate Dept., Pigface) and mezzo-soprano Adrienne LaVey.
