ACTORS’ 2018 album, ‘It Will Come to You’, also released on Artoffact, put the band’s moody, anthemic style on the map, earning these words from Post-Punk.com: “Vancouver’s brilliant post-punk and new-wave quartet ACTORS continue their flair for sonic cinematics... The atmosphere quivers with singer Jason Corbett’s crooning reverb augmented by shivering guitars and stark synths.” Three years later, the follow-up, ‘Acts of Worship’, is an album of driving beats, massive hooks, and dramatic atmospheres - equally melancholy and electrifying, it plays like the soundtrack to an imaginary Michael Mann film.

ACTORS’ Jason Corbett has stated: “It’s about embracing who you are and having the confidence to do what you feel and not be afraid. I made the first ACTORS album without caring about who would hear it. I think people can feel honesty in music whether they realize it or not. The new album is exactly where I wanted to go with ACTORS. It expands on the last album lyrically and sonically. It’s the next step of our journey.”

Corbett points to legends who changed the face of pop music in their day - DAVID BOWIE, ROXY MUSIC, DURAN DURAN - as inspirations. The album also sees the debut of new bassist Kendall Wooding; Corbett notes that the current line-up, completed by synth player Shannon Hemmett and drummer Adam Fink, perfectly reflects the balance of masculine and feminine energy contained within the songs.

‘Acts of Worship’ was produced by Corbett at his own Jacknife Sound in Vancouver; his sonic sculpting is a major component of ACTORS’ sound, as well as the sounds of other artists like BOOTBLACKS and SPECTRES.
