Following their recent collab with Gnod under the Temple ov BBV pseudonym, Eindhoven art-punk collective RMFTM (fka Radar Men From The Moon) have announced the third and final instalment in their ‘Subversive’ album trilogy. ‘Subversive III: De Spelende Mens’ is officially released December 1st on Fuzz Club Records and ahead of its release the band are now sharing the first taste of the new album in the shape of an immersive short-film titled ‘Black Canvas, Dark Majesty’ – soundtracked by their droning twenty-minute album closer of the same name. Talking of the film, RMFTM explain: “Video is such a wonderful artistic medium but as a result of the music industry fetishizing 3-minute videos, things have started to become very hasty and shallow. With this in mind we decided to take our album closer, which is a 20-minute piece called ‘Black Canvas, Dark Majesty’ and make a film for it. We worked with visual artist Merel Stolker and she did a beautiful performance with a very aesthetic quality. The video requires attention and patience, so we hope people take the time for it.”
RMFTM formed in Eindhoven in 2010 and is comprised of Glenn Peeters, Tony Lathouwers, Titus Verkuijlen and Bram van Zuijlen.
Subversive III – produced by Bob de Wit (A Place To Bury Strangers/Gnod/White Hills) – follows extensive tours of Europe and a number of previous LPs including Subversive II (2016), Subversive I (2015), Strange Wave Galore (2014) and Echo Forever (2011). Prior to the Subversive trilogy RMFTM dealt mostly in celestial space-rock, droning shoegaze and neo-psych but as the years have gone on their sound has morphed into an entirely new beast, taking a much more experimental and electronic-driven approach.
