Slated for a June 8th release, William Control will release his latest genesis, Noir. Wil Francis explores essence through grayscale, while seducing his listeners. Noir will make you sweat; pulse pounding and body tingling with every beat. If his 2008 effort, Hate Culture wasn’t enough, this 12-track release will set your senses on fire.
About William Control:
The smoke clears and in whispering waves of self-mutilation I can see the dark sky fall to pieces.
The world is sometimes too heavy to breath and the dead surround me like an ocean.
I can’t recognize the reflection looking back through the mirror.
I only grasp the concept of what it’s like to walk through life with a stranger holding a knife to my neck.
The empty shell of a shattered boy I know possess is my new skin.
Pain is my only horizon, hate, is my only form of flattery, ugly is the world around me and nowhere
beyond the infinite infrastructure of the eternal lonely soul can my blackened heart be found.
If you want a glimpse of torment and bittersweet visions delight, I’ll
gladly cut my head off so you can look down the hole.
Nothing there will bring the joyful bliss you crave.
Drinking lighter fluid to start a fire inside my guts, I am on a slow painful ride
through the underbelly of hell and I wont mind if this is where we say goodbye and go our separate ways.
I am inside of you.
Living and breathing.
I am William Control

That's a pretty sweet and involved album trailer. And it's neat how the new song references the "let the right one in" theme he has used previously. He is making an excellent transition so far from the last record to this one.
