Com Truise In Decay LP Out on Vinyl & Worldwide Tour Announced

ComTruise  In Decay LPThe summer sees many firsts for prolific producer Com Truise. In anticipation of his upcoming worldwide tour, In Decay (originally released digitally in July of 2012) is being released on vinyl for the first time on July 15, 2014.  Another first is performing in Australia while Europe and the states get another look at the newly improved show. The live set up now takes place in what is being called anywhere from a control center, starship command, battestar commica or a pentagonal portal if you will.

Com Truise is one of the many personas of producer and designer Seth Haley, born and raised in upstate New York and operating out of a 12’-overrun apartment in Princeton, New Jersey. An admitted synth obsessive, Com Truise is the maker of an experimental and bottom heavy style he calls “mid-fi synth-wave, slow-motion funk”.

Haley’s been making music on the side for roughly a decade—going through pseudonyms like toothbrushes (Sarin Sunday, SYSTM, Airliner)—first as a DJ, and currently, as an excavator of softer, window-fogging synth-wave.

While subliminally informed by both parental record collections and hints of faded electronics product design, Haley’s Com Truise project isn’t just nostalgia capitalization. There are fragments (read: DNA strands) of Joy Division, New Order, and the Cocteau Twins, but it’s like you’re hearing them through the motherboard of a waterlogged Xbox—demented and modern. He’s got a way of making familiar things sound beautifully hand-smeared.
