Debut From Canadian Metal Powerhouse Living Dead Girl, “Exorcism” Available for Pre-Order

Monday, March 22, 2021 | News

LIVING DEAD GIRL has revealed artwork and pre-order information for Exorcism, the debut from the up-and-coming Canadian metal powerhouse.

“I am beyond thrilled to finally be able to share our debut record after four years of working on it,” says vocalist Molly Rennick. “I was such a perfectionist with it. I kept scrapping entire EPs’ worth of material and restarting, trying to nail the sound I was after. After working with Mitchell Marlow (Papa Roach, In This Moment, All That Remains), we were able to nail it. It’s heavy and dark, but upbeat, fun and drenched in sexy attitude. The sound and vibe of this record are new and fresh, and I’m prouder of it than anything else I’ve done in my 22 years on this planet. I couldn’t be any more excited to unleash it!”

Exorcism digital pre-orders are available today at https://distrokid.com/hyperfollow/livingdeadgirl1/exorcism-2.

Additional bundles, including physical CDs, vinyl and exclusive merchandise are available at www.livingdeadgirl.ca/.

On Exorcism’s 11 banging tracks, Rennick channels her inner “goth girl gone bad” attitude. From the raging, down-tuned riffs of the title track and “Worship Me,” to the infectious, singalong chorus of “Villain,” to the enticing, taunting melodies of “Beautiful” and “Alive,” Rennick commands your full attention. LIVING DEAD GIRL has already released two singles and videos from Exorcism, the anthemic “Alive,” which received airplay on Toronto’s mainstream rock station 94.9 The Rock, 89.1 Max FM in Barrie, Orilia and the Muskokas, X92.9 Calgary, X100.7 – Red Deer’s Alternative and CBC Radio Canada online, the title track and “Escape.”

Formed in 2017, LIVING DEAD GIRL’s style is a unique combination of goth-inspired heavy metal meets fellow Canadian frontwoman Avril Lavigne, possessing an amalgam of genres including rock, metal, industrial, goth, pop and punk rock. The music perfectly encapsulates Rennick’s personality, which she admits is a dichotomy of “one wears baby pink and Hello Kitty and listens to pop music, and the other a goth girl in fishnet stockings who listens to dark heavy metal.” The 21-year-old Rennick’s amazing vocal range sees her seamlessly switching from taunting, high-pitched croons, to menacing, harsh barks, to haunting growls with relative ease.
