Genghis Tron have premiered a new video for their new song “Pyrocene.” This track is from the band’s new album “Dream Weapon,” which will be released on March 26. Guitarist Hamilton Jordan commented:
“‘Pyrocene‘ was the first song we finished for ‘Dream Weapon‘. It all started with a single drumbeat that I wrote during an extended stay in the Arizona desert. I gave that beat to Michael, and within a few weeks he built an entire sinister, pulsating world around it. We knew, well before finishing the album, that this had to be the opening song on the record.”
Genghis Tron have premiered a new song titled “Ritual Circle.” This track is from the band’s new album “Dream Weapon,” which will be released on March 26. Guitarist Hamilton Jordan commented:
“When writing and recording this album, one of our aims was to create a deep sonic world the listener can really get lost in. ‘Ritual Circle‘ embodies that for me—it still takes me to another place whenever I listen. Find some headphones, turn it up, and zone out!”
Genghis Tron have premiered a new video for their new single “Dream Weapon.” This song is the title track of the band’s new album, which will be released on March 26.

Jordan said the following about the new record:
“That album’s closing track, ‘Relief,’ was about how humans have become a burden to the planet, and how Earth will endure long after we’re gone. There is sadness at the end, but some relief—and beauty—too. ‘Dream Weapon‘ is, loosely, an album-length meditation on that theme.”
“Though it sounds a bit different than our previous albums, I don’t think we approached ‘Dream Weapon‘ any differently than the others. Michael and I take years to write and trade demos, with about 80% of our ideas landing on the cutting-room floor. Once we have a rough song idea we both like, we write dozens of drafts of a song over months before we end up with a final demo.”
“I think one difference in our approach for this album was that we had a strong sense from the outset of what kind of vibe we wanted to create. Something more cohesive, meditative and hypnotic.”
