Not too long ago, news came out that Kristin Hayter would be retiring her act as Lingua Ignota. She still intends on creating music but wants to do so in a new direction. You can read the full statement she provided via this link here.
All that said, it looks like we will get to hear some of that new music soon! Announced as of today, Kristin will be taking part in a special festival titled Perpetual Flame Volume 1. This festival will take place in April 2023 at Chicago’s Thalia Hall (it will run from April 28th – 30th). This festival will feature a plethora of amazing acts, such as Thou, Vile Creature, Moor Mother, Midwife, and more.
This festival will also feature Kristin headlining each night; on Friday she will perform All Bitches Die and Caligula; on Saturday she will perform SINNER GET READY; and then on Sunday, she will debut new music under the name The Reverend Kristin Hayter.
Along with news of this festival and Hayter debuting new material, she has also announced that she and KW (of doom metal act Vile Creature) have started up their own label (that being Perpetual Flame Ministries)!
Three-day passes go on sale this Friday (December 9th at 10 am CST), with single-day tickets going on sale December 16th. You do not want to miss out on what is sure to be a truly remarkable and amazing experience. We are incredibly excited to attend this festival!
