A lot more about “Turn Off The Light”:

Kim Petras has released her highly-anticipated, Halloween-inspired project TURN OFF THE LIGHT. Resurrecting Kim’s malevolent persona, TURN OFF THE LIGHT invites sinister synths and bloodthirsty beats to summon nine new tracks which join its critically-acclaimed first volume as one 17-track body of work. PRESS HERE to listen. 

Welcoming atmospheric club instrumentals alongside five new, spine-chilling singles including “There Will Be Blood,” an intoxicatingly sanguine floor-filler, TURN OFF THE LIGHT fuses classic horror soundscapes with euphoric, modern, pop hooks to birth a theatrical, Frankenstenian project. Also featured are tracks “Wrong Turn,” “Massacre,” “Death By Sex,” and the glam-rock-possessed “Everybody Dies.” Full track listing below. 

Later this month, Kim will be hitting the road for The Clarity Tour. The run, which kicks off October 21 in Vancouver, will bring Kim to major cities from coast to coast, including New YorkSeattleLos AngelesAtlanta, and Nashville, before wrapping on December 8 in San DiegoPRESS HERE for tickets and VIP packages.
