LINGUA IGNOTA Announces Partnership With Profound Lore / U.S. Tour With The Body

Profound Lore Records has announced a partnership with LINGUA IGNOTA, the devastating solo project of Kristin Hayter that combines a powerful and violent amalgam of death industrial, power electronics, and neo-classical into a singular uncompromising sonic vision. This partnership will begin with the re-issue of last year’s self-released “All Bitches Die” opus which will see its release for the first time on CD/LP/widespread digital on June 22nd, and will feature a new unreleased bonus track. This will be followed with the new LINGUA IGNOTA full-length, which Kristin is currently working on, that will see the light sometime in the impending near future. Also in correspondence with the “All Bitches Die” re-issue, LINGUA IGNOTA has announced a full US tour with the body this summer.

LINGUA IGNOTA, the solo project of multidisciplinary artist Kristin Hayter, takes a radical, unflinching approach to themes of violence and vengeance in ways that are moving, brutal, and harrowing. Her music is intentionally situated at specific and strange intersections, incorporating elements of power electronics, death industrial, and black metal alongside baroque classical, spiritual minimalism and folk. Relentless intensity and soaring dramatic arcs are informed by Hayter’s background in classical music, and the major sonic locus of the project is her voice, a dynamic entity that rushes from unhinged screaming to lilting soprano to angular belting with an artistry and ferocity that has drawn comparisons to Diamanda Galas. She is notorious for confrontational live performances that can leave an audience breathless or in tears.

Hayter began classical training at the age of ten with intent to pursue an operatic conservatory track. Instead she developed an interdisciplinary fine arts practice at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She continued with graduate work at Brown University, producing a controversial thesis titled BURN EVERYTHING TRUST NO ONE KILL YOURSELF. LINGUA IGNOTA was born out of this thesis which re-contextualized misogynist content as biblically vitriolic anthems for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. A survivor herself, Hayter seeks to give a singularly aggressive voice to the unheard, silenced, and dismissed.

Lingua Ignota self-released two albums in 2017 that garnered noteworthy attention and accolades. She tours and collaborates chiefly with metal-transgressing luminaries The Body.

“All Bitches Die” track listing:

  1. Woe To All (On The Day Of My Wrath)
  2. God Gave Me No Name (No Thing Can Hide From My Flame)
  3. All Bitches Die (All Bitches Die Here)
  4. For I Am The Light (And Mine Is The Only Way)
