This is such a great discovery, an interesting punchy album for interesting times! I have to work my way through the back-catalogue now. Shades of DAF, Mode, Soft Cell, Neubauten, Ebb, NIN. Great songs and production , although vocals need bringing up a bit on a couple of tracks for me...I look forward to seeing and hearing live.
The new single is terrific too.
This is one of the better dark wave /synth pop /sleaze pop ,bands, there are no filler tracks on this album, everyone is a killer and very enjoyable,I think this is their most mature album of there career.
Favorite track: Poshlost.

Slaves is my favorite song, although Crosses comes at such a close second... this LP and acts of worship I both need to own in some sort of physical copy one day, they're so good at expressing emotions I didn't even know I felt... yona

Bandcamp is my favorite app. Without Bandcamp I would missed out on a lot of great music like Empathy Test! A wonderful album. Occasionally bombastic with nice synths and the voice of Isaac Howlett on top. Well done guys💪🏽 Fredschuit
