Art Bergmann – Late Stage Empire Dementia

“Late State Empire Dementia” is Art Bergmann‘s ninth studio full length album released under his own name and is the follow up to his well-received Polaris Music Prize Long Listed record “The Apostate” which came out in 2016 on (weewerk). An album of anthemic response to the psychopathic forces that conspire against us to swallow the earth and all of its creatures, whole, “Late State Empire Dementia” features eight new songs that are devastatingly honest and sonically propelling, performed by a singer songwriter who still has a lot left to say. The album is planned on being released digitally later

Art Bergmann – The Apostate

“The Apostate” is Art Bergmann’s first full length of new material since the Juno winning “What Fresh Hell Is This” and is the follow up to his well-received 2014 ep release “Songs For The Underclass”. Mesmerizing and masterful, “The Apostate” displays a rejuvenated singer songwriter who at the top of his lyrical game, has pushed his sound significantly, creating some of his most dynamic songs ever recorded. More country and eastern folk flavored then previous albums, Art is forging new ground and claiming his forthright place amongst his contemporaries, while continuing to re-establish his brilliant and eclectic past body of work.
