Twin Temple has announced their imminent return with a new album God Is Dead, sharing the release of the lead single “Burn Your Bible.” They will also be performing at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles on October 27th. As the self-proclaimed wickedest band in the world, the Satanic doo-wop duo of Alexandra and Zachary James has made a name for themselves since the release of their self-titled debut back in 2018.

With “Burn Your Bible” they hitch their sacrilege once more to an ecstatic and swooning melody. Reveling in the soul-snaring nostalgia of vintage R&B and rock alongside delightfully blasphemous worship toward the downfall of the oppressively patriarchal and ecclesiastical.

With a thunderclap and the dooming call of a distant churchbell, the song begins with Twin Temple’s characteristically impish desecrations. “I don’t want to turn to the light,” she urges against the song’s betrayingly enthused melody. “Don’t pray for me, don’t waste your time.”

At the center is Alexandra’s mesmeric vocals, levitating through the groan of guitars and twinkling xylophone keys. All the while pleading with you to burn that bible with the same cooing grace as a lovelorn pining over unrequited love. She wails passionately: “I want you to burn your bible with me tonight.”

But for Twin Temple, there is no greater obstacle than lifting the veil off a hoodwinked lover, and nothing more romantic than destroying the symbol of a tyrannical and puritanical power. Renouncing anything and everything related to the disdainful realm of the sacred — at least the one occupied by the church — the duo gleefully invites you to join them.
