We know demons as legendary creatures – but sometimes they seem more real to us than we would like. In their new single ‘Malphas’, Future Palace combine mythological symbolism with the abyss of an emotional world.

The introductory staccato riffing announces the most harrowing three minutes the band have recorded by far, further developing the sound of 2022’s second album Run

An incomparable, massively produced set of instruments, together with the brute screams of vocalist Maria Lessing, create a trembling sound that can hardly be described as post-hardcore, with additional synthesizer, industrial and darkwave elements.

The Malphas is a demon figure from centuries-old tales, that appears in the form of a raven and takes its victims bit by bit like a virus. With this image, Future Palace tell of the battles that do not take place in stories, but in real life. 

“With its power, our new song ‘Malphas’ is intended to represent the recurring struggle and the necessary patience with oneself and one’s inner demons,” comments Lessing on the song, offering hope despite the brute force of the sound.

Future Palace are currently on tour throughout Europe with Electric Callboy, followed by their Run headline tour later this year.
