Deadsy Release Their First Single Since 2006 “(study for a portrait of) Napoleon In Rags”


Gothy electro rockers Deadsy have released their first new song since 2006 in the form of “(study for a portrait of) Napoleon In Rags“. It is unclear if the arrival of this track signals the forthcoming release of the band’s long-delayed “Subterfuge” album, which was originally planned to be out back in 2021. The band describe this single as being a ‘version 1’ take.

The band’s reemergence follows some lingering controversy for their frontman Elijah Blue Allman. The continued uproar stems from Allman failing to deliver on a planned vinyl reissue of the band’s “Phantasmagore” album. Pre-orders for that launched three years ago, with the pressing never materializing. More troubling however was an apparent lack of refunds being reissued for some fans regarding that. Allman, who recently revealed himself to be in treatment for substance abuse issues, apologized for that matter last month.

Much has also been made lately of Allman‘s mental health, with his mother, pop superstar Cher, recently being denied an attempt to establish a temporary conservatorship over aspects of his finances.

In court proceedings that played out this year, Cher alleged her son has a “history of drug use” and a “schizoaffective disorder” diagnosis. According to court filings, Allman had regularly submitted to drug tests which proved he has been maintaining his sobriety as of late. Cher‘s legal team however continue to express their concern over his mental health.
