Backeat Mafia reveal second Smote video for forthcoming album 'Drommon' – plus announce debut live shows

Newcastle band Smote have just revealed the video for 'Poleyn' – the second track taken from forthcoming album 'Drommon'. 

Originally released as a cassette earlier this year, this expanded vinyl version of 'Drommon' features a longer version of the title track, plus adds two new pieces of music. The track 'Poleyn' is one of these new tracks and you can watch its video made by Sebastien Cao via Backseat Mafia here:

The album is released this Friday, though frustratingly due to the chaos vinyl manufacturing is in at the moment, the ltd edition LP has been delayed and won't be in the shops now until late October early November. Though you can still preorder a copy from your local record shop or via Bandcamp:


The band have announced the first live dates, starting at the incredible Brave Exhibitions Festival in Newcastle:

Nov 19-21 / Newcastle / Brave Exhibitions Festival  Tickets
Nov 27 / Manchester / The Talleyrand


Summoned from the murkier reaches of the subconscious and summoning a powerful aura of twilight communion, Smote’s ‘Drommon’ is here to intimidate and enchant. The first Rocket release for this enigmatic Newcastle-based entity is no less than a mystically-aligned voyage into abandon and epiphany.

Replete with doom-laden atmospherics and crepuscular intensity, this is an intimidating denouement to return to time and again. Join the ritual, and submit to ‘Drommon’.
