Cruex Lies announced new album "Goodbye Divine" and unveils first single and video, "Misunderstanding!

Post-punk act, Cruex Liies, returns with the "Misunderstanding", a dark pop melody turning into a danceable post-punk track!

Hailing from Sacramento, California, Creux Lies is Ean Clevenger (vocals, programming), Barry Crider (guitars, vocals), Kyle Vorst (bass), and David Wright (synth, drum programming), praised for their reverb-laden guitar work, creative synth structures, and dynamic vocals recalling the best from 80’s-early 90’s dark pop and post-punk.

Cruex Lies is one of the bands that rapidly engaged media and fans interest with their debut album, "The Hearth", released via Cleopatra Records with 3 sold-out vinyl pressings). With the nostalgic dark pop they introduced themselves, Sacramento based post-punkers announced their second full length album, "Goodbye Divine", out via Freakwave.

"Misunderstanding" comes few months earlier than the album's official release date, and it, definitely, makes the anticipation getting higher. With the sharp guitars and the dark pop soundscapes, "Misunderstanding" is a track flowing dark emotions and creating a dark, sexy and danceable song. Deep vocals adds even more lyricism and coldness to a synth melody, full of energy.

"Misunderstanding emerged from part of this strange writing session/coping moment during the world shut down, awakened with this "whoa oh, oh oh" in my head from a dream and went to the computer just after dawn. As with many tracks on this latest album, my tentative register was landing a bit lower from trying to sing it out in the early morning hours. So, the profound moody thing resonated, and the song unfolded around my fingers on the synths," says Ean Clevenger.

Cruex Lies, are, beautifully, "playing" between the sounds of Depeche Mode into these of Editors, or the shades and contrasts of New Order into more modern outfits, like Actors.

"Misunderstanding" is out with an official video directed and edited by Phil Mohr. Dark aesthetics and tempting snake dance from Actor/Dancer Jessica Will while imagery slightly glides between this mystic dance and the band performing the "Misunderstanding".

"The Creux added some great additions during production and elevated this song to what it is today. Ironically, the lyrics and message behind the track illuminate a moment of clarity when the misunderstanding of a perspective actually reveals itself as absolute authenticity."

Apart from successful tours in North America and Europe, Creux Lies has shared the stage with the likes of The Soft Moon, Clan of Xymox, Drab Majesty, Soft Kill, Gene Loves Jezebel, ACTORS, Vowws and Twin Tribes, as well as performing at Absolution Fest, WGT, Murder of Crows NY and playing to a sold-out crowd at Wave-Gotik-Treffen in Leipzig.

As of July 23, 'Misunderstanding' will be available across streaming platforms like Spotify, as well as online stores such as Apple Music. The full 'Goodbye Divine' LP will be released on October 8.
