    Seattle goth-folk musician T.J. Cowgill, better known simply as King Dude, returns with his new album Fear on May 6th via Not Just Religious. The 13-track effort was produced by Bill Rieflin (Ministry, Swans, Pigface) and finds King Dude turning out his “most horrifying music” to date.

    “There are already way too many songs written about being afraid to die (or not afraid to die for that matter) in fact I have written a few of them myself,” Cowgill explained in a press release. “So I chose the next most obvious fear I felt everyone shared. And that is the fear felt during early adolescence. As we move away from our childhood towards our adulthood we (in a sense) watch helplessly from the confides of our own slowly deforming, prepubescent bodies as the “child-mind” is ripped away only (or buried deeply into our subconscious) only to be replaced by the cruel, maniacal, sex crazed “adult-mind” also known as the ultimate product of a civilized adult world reality.”

    Our first glimpse of the new LP comes in the form of “Fear Is All You Know”, a frightening cut featuring Cowgill’s deep, bone-chilling bellow. Check it out via its bondage-inspired video below.
