Death. Sex. Doomed Romance. These three simple phrases define the sound and thematic presence of Panic Priest. The musical project of singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Jack Armondo (of “dark pop” duo My Gold Mask), Panic Priest is centered around Armondoʼs deep, crooning vocals while weaving together electronic beats, dreamy guitars and synths. Panic Priest creates midnight melodies that wonʼt soon leave your memory as dawn breaks.
Panic Priestʼs debut and self-titled illustration to the world saw itʼs release in May of 2018 under Negative Gain Productions and was mixed and recorded in part by Adam Stillson of the electronic/ shoegaze project New Canyons. Armondo crosses boundaries as he offers a host of technical skill by blending the likes of darkwave, post-punk, and synthpop into one unique melting pot. The album also features guest contributions from members of such acts as Wingtips, NITE, and Airiel.
