French rock duo SINNER SINNERS released their third full-length album, entitled Optimism Disorder, in March. The album is now available in North America on limited edition, colored 12-inch vinyl via Last Hurrah Records!
As pictured above, the Optimism Disorder jacket features matte lamination and UV spot gloss, guaranteed to showcase the skull and hangman’s noose, seemingly popping out of the palm tree. The vinyl comes in two different color configurations. Both options are a schizophrenic blend of opaque and translucent hues. The run is limited to 500 copies (250 of each color). Ordering two records ensures the buyer that one of each color will be received. Order now via www.sinnersinners.com/store or http://lasthurrahrecords.com/sinnersinners-order.html.

(from Bauhaus and Love & Rockets) titled Vagabond Songs and Somebody’s Doin’ Something from Nashville garage punk girls Thelma & The Sleaze.
Optimism Disorder burns with a neurotic post-punk brightness, further influenced by the intensity of early ’80s hardcore fused with an incendiary ’70s goth punk ethos. The album is available now in CD format here, and digital format here. As touched upon with the previously released tracks from Optimism Disorder (“California“, “Last Drop“, “Celexa Blues“, “Desperation Saved Me” and “Hate Yourself“), the album’s 11 tracks illustrate a dynamic and relatable portrait of social hypocrisy, depression, personal anxiety and paranoia inspired by suffocating reality, duplicitous relationships, fluctuating political climate and tragedy.
