DESCRIPTION

THE BAD DOCTORS are releasing their first full length album, “Burning City” in spring 2014. The sound of THE BAD DOCTORS comes from a concentrated study of New-Wave and the Goth side of Post-Punk, paired with an extensive array of synthesizers and electronics. They've been conceptually developing their record since their start in 2009, and it is easily their most ambitious project to date. THE BAD DOCTORS' "Burning City" is an attempt to map the human spirit: ecstatic, decadent, and tragic all at once. It traces our flights of passion, stands knee-deep in our flooded basements, and walks our collapsing back-alleys.
From the opening notes it’s apparent how important the synthesizers are for the tone of the record, leaping forward while the band itself catches up. Combined with precision drumming, solid bass lines, driving guitar riffs, and poetic lyrics, THE BAD DOCTORS bring a tumult of orchestrated electronic madness into a groundbreaking study of pop song structures. The band has crafted a hybrid of Post-Punk, New-Wave, Garage Pop, and Indie that keeps you in a modern timeframe while also sounding eerily like a record that could have been in the vaults of Factory records.
A few months back, the "Re-Animate" EP was released digitally as a teaser for “Burning City”, which is free on the FDH records band camp page. While the title track could have been slipped into a GARY NUMAN record without notice, songs like “Prism, Mirror, Lens” are harder to pin down. The EP is just a taste of how seamlessly “Burning City” integrates Post-Punk with electronics, and features three songs from the record itself.
After a few listens, this record seeps its way into the darkest labyrinths of your mind, projecting it’s glittering glass and surreal nightmares onto the cities we live in. While it is bound to make you nostalgic for the early 1980’s, “Burning City” is more than just another New-Wave clone; it will find its way into the New Testament of the New Wave / Post-Punk Bible beside NEW ORDER, DEVO, JOY DIVISION, THE SCREAMERS & KRAFTWERK!"
