brooding and bleak” – Post-Punk

Informed by graveyard shifts as a paramedic, his fundamentalist Christian upbringing, and a slate of personal tragedies, Trust Ruins is the culmination of the debasement and primality that All Your Sisters virtuoso Jordan Morrison saw in his surroundings. Teetering between disgust and despair, the ten tracks that comprise the LP are the score to a series of de-indoctrinating sermons, armed with marching protest beats. The album’s second single, “Self Medicating,” premieres today alongside a new interview with the artist and perfectly showcases the brooding and bleak tone of Trust Ruins.
In need of an outlet to process the suffering that imbued his life, Jordan Morrison formed All Your Sisters in 2011. The stakes raised in the final months of 2016, when Morrison experienced the elation of becoming engaged in tandem with the fatal drug overdose of his brother-in-law, as well as the Ghost Ship warehouse fire in Oakland. Compounded with the recent presidential election, a sense of inescapable doom and dystopia lingered, forcing Morrison to re-examine the direction of his life. Trust Ruins is the product of that reflection.
“This record is about making hard life choices, living with those decisions, and the struggle to live life on life’s terms,” Morrison said of the album’s intent. “If I die tomorrow, I don’t want to have any regrets.”
With All Your Sisters, Morrison lends sound to humankind’s darkest depths and deepest debasements. He digs his heels even deeper into neo-punk electro-clatter with Trust Ruins, which will be released on April 12 by San Francisco-based label The Flenser.
