Ashnikko - WEEDKILLER
- Standard Edition
- Recycled LP Vinyl with Red Tint
RELEASE DATE: 06/02/2023 POSTPONED TO 08/25/2023
Debut album WEEDKILLER is a collection of irresistible songs that perfect the bold, genre-blending sound that has defined Ashnikko’s work to date. While the acclaimed 2021 mixtape DEMIDEVIL showcased a head-on approach, directly tackling themes of sexual revolution and revenge, WEEDKILLER is more allegorical.
A half-concept album set in a dystopian future, the WEEDKILLER universe that Ashnikko has created tells the story of a fae civilization occupied and destroyed by machines that feed on organic matter where the faerie protagonist seeks revenge by becoming part machine - a poetic commentary on environmental disaster and the rapid evolution of technology, while also confronting real-world issues from sexual empowerment to tech warfare and ecological collapse. Full of equal parts naked vulnerability and joyful rebellion, WEEDKILLER gives a thundering voice to the oppressed.
Speaking on the announce, Ashnikko states "My bioluminescent heart is glowing. My post-apocalyptic fae world is here for you to journey into. My wings have been ripped out, but I’ve built them anew using WEEDKILLER machine parts. I am the one sent here to eliminate you, WEEDKILLER.”
