You may have seen both Bring Me The Horizon and POORSTACY teasing a collab lately, and we can rest easy knowing that neither act has ever let us down before. But before we get to that, POORSTACY has shared a huge new single, the second off his highly-anticipated forthcoming album, Party At The Cemetery. ‘Children of the Dark’ addresses the South Florida rock artist’s experiences with death, as he reflects on the loss of loved ones throughout his life.
In his own words,”‘Children of the Dark’ kind of sets the tone for the album more than anything. It was the record I recorded that really helped me guide the full project. It’s a tribute to the lives of my friends who have died, but it’s also very live and energetic,” he prefaces. “Death is the one thing everyone’s super afraid of, but it’s the only thing we are promised. I’m choosing to celebrate it instead of being sad,” he adds.
Party At The Cemetery is set for release later on this year, representing the follow-up to Stacy’s 2020 debut album The Breakfast Club. With collaborations with the likes of iann dior and Travis Barker in his wake, he continues to push the envelope further and further in transcending genres that were once so unnecessarily siloed. Speaking on the upcoming full-length, Stacy rattles off an abridged list of some of the influences that are set to shape what we hear on his sophomore record. “I want to incorporate it all into my art. I love ballet. I love Stanley Kubrick. I love Tim Burton. I love Victorian architecture. There’s so much I draw on,” he notes. You can hear the first cut off Party At The Cemetery, ‘Public Enemy’, right here.
