Comments Off on Nouvo Testamento Announce ‘Love Lines’ LP, Release New Single / Video

Los Angeles / Bologna based trio, Nuovo Testamento, has taken over dance floors with their uniquely dark Italo disco-flavored pop hits in just a few years. Following the release of the coldwave cult hit Exposure EP back in 2019 (Avant! Records), their acclaimed full-length New Earth exploded onto the scene with its graceful 1980s-influenced club elements, contagious rhythms and a powerful punch of synth-pop. The release was widely considered across genres to be one of 2021’s best underground albums of the year. 

Today they’re back with the announcement of their highly anticipated second LP, Love Lines, on which Nuovo Testamento continue to explore the light, the dark and exultant personal power in what will undoubtedly become an instant dance classic. Its infectious lead single and video “Heartbeat” hits today, and is a striking preview of what’s to come.

Love Lines is an album about proof of life and the joy of survival. Vibrant with Italo disco and Hi-NRG celebration, the record invokes a sense of motion in an often stagnant time and place. Inside the eight new tracks, rich synthesizers and driving percussion testify to the need for movement, connection and autonomy. 

Produced by sound engineer Maurizio Baggio (Boy Harsher, The Soft Moon) with vocal recording by Riki, Love Lines is reminiscent of the work of Shep Pettibone, Chris Barbosa and serves as a reminder of the power of pop music.

Nuovo Testamento includes members of hardcore and dark punk royalty Tørsö, Horror Vacui, Crimson Scarlet and touring members of Sheer Mag. Following a successful European run with Riki, they’re currently wrapping a full U.S. run supporting The Soft Moon and have confirmed a performance at Homesick Festival in Berkeley in January 2023. The trio has also just confirmed an extensive North American tour supporting Molchat Doma in late Spring of next year; see below for a full list of dates.

Love Lines sees its release March 6, 2023 via Discoteca Italia. It will be available on vinyl limited to 2000 copies, including classic black, baby blue/baby pink (250 copies) and red/white (250 copies). Pre-Order Love Lines Here.
