LA-based alt-hard rock/metal trio, Seven Day Sleep, are getting ready to release their latest EP A Home for Disgusting Fairies on June 2nd.

Last week the trio premiered the video for “Red Lipstick Murders,” which is the second track on the EP. Check out the video below.

Officially formed in 2016, Seven Day Sleep draw their influences from Evanescence, Marilyn Manson, and My Chemical Romance, as well as horror culture and fairy tales. However, there is something distinctly feminine about Seven Day Sleep’s musical themes, but it is a femininity that defies convention and is interestingly dark.

With their roots in the US, Turkey, and Switzerland, Seven Day Sleep’s music is a progressive blend of the aggressive metal sounds with a unique cultural flair. For instance, the intro to track “No Tears, No Flowers” has an almost exotic feel to it before the music transitions into the typical metal melodies and rhythms.

Then there is the country inspired melodies of “Chocolate and the Favourite Gun.” This unique blend of sounds is refreshing, and the variance in the beat is exhilarating.

There is also a grandness to their music. The track “Dying Lady’s Joke” sounds more like an epic ballad at times than a simple rock song. Those that love the theatric qualities of metal music will love this song.
