On March 13, Fotocrime—the goth/post-punk project of R., aka Ryan Patterson, formerly of Coliseum—will release sophomore album South of Heaven via Profound Lore. And today, we’re debuting a new video for the single “Expulsion from Paradise,” directed and edited by Jakub Moth. The dark and driving goth-rock track, dense in gauzy distortion and melodic synths, is paired with grainy, artful yet ominous images of trains, eyes, architecture and other sometimes-unclear imagery. Watch the clip below.

South of Heaven, which was produced and engineered by J. Robbins (Jawbox) and features sessions recorded by Steve Albini (Shellac), follows 2018’s Principle of Pain.
