It is the year 2020 and Black Nail Cabaret have secured a headstart into the new decade. Not only have they successfully secured a record contract with Dependent, they also managed to hop on as support on Covenant's recent "Fieldworks 2020 Tour" (March and April), which is expected to give them another boost, as the Hungarian Dark Electronic Pop duo is known for their impressive live performances. And all this right before their new album "Gods Verging On Sanity" is supposed to hit the shelves in May 2020. Perfect timing. But there is more to Black Nail Cabaret than just timing, much more, actually. In their own words: "It is the year 2020 and Gods are Verging On Sanity: this is us, humans. We are gods, with an anus. We contemplate our place in the world, the meaning of our death. We find and create beauty and yet we eat, defecate and reproduce like any other animal on this planet. We are existential organisms and our minds struggle with this duality. We fight against our own mortality in different ways: some with procreation, some with art, some with power and some just don't fight at all. How far have we come and where to go from here? How do we shed the old skin now that the new one is growing underneath?" Black Nail Cabaret consists of music, art, poetry, costumes, eroticism, BDSM. There are sexual references everywhere, but always with a dark twist, always with a connection to existentialism, that dark side in humanity, which is also one of the main layers of "Gods Verging On Sanity". Singer/Performer Emese Arvai-Illes started out as a performer in a fetish/horror theatre group in Budapest, but quickly found programmer/producer/partner Kristzian Arvai to be her musical counterpart. Like in their lyrics, the music of Black Nail Cabaret fuses darkness with light, beauty with violence and disturbing art with lush harmonies. Modern electronic sequences meet a distinct 80ies influence of boundary-pushing female performers like Grace Jones or Eurythmics. Old skins meet new visions and this makes Black Nail Cabaret's "Gods Verging On Sanity" one of the most interesting new entries of this young music decade. "Gods Verging On Sanity" is released on May 8th 2020 as beautiful 6 page digipack and as a limited vinyl record edition with 180 gram vinyl, 300 units with black and 200 units with gold vinyl.
