The first Iranian Vampire Western ever made, Ana Lily Amirpour’s debut basks in the sheer pleasure of pulp. A joyful mash-up of genre, archetype, and iconography, its prolific influences span spaghetti westerns, graphic novels, horror films, and the Iranian New Wave. Featuring music by Federale.

Federale has always operated under the guidance of a larger story arc. 2007’s La Rayar is a classic tale of betrayal and vengeance. 2009’s Devil In A Boot centers on a small town terrorized by a railroad company baron’s expansion and destruction. 2012’s The Blood Flowed Like Wine tells the supernatural tale of an evil so powerful that not even hell can hold back its wrath.
All The Colours Of The Dark continues this tradition while breaking new musical terrain. Though the new record includes cinematic instrumentals and that the band is known for, it also sees Federale expanding their vision to narrative songs in the baritone-driven style of heroes Lee Hazlewood, Scott Walker and Nick Cave. Murder, revenge, regret, power and corruption are the lyrical themes of this collection. This album will be the band’s first on Death Waltz Records. A limited number of colored vinyl is available now in advance of the upcoming wide release.
In 2014, Federale contributed five songs to Ana Lily Amirpour’s acclaimed gothic vampire film noir, A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night, setting the mood of both the film and the soundtrack. Lily’s new film, The Bad Batch, will feature the title track from the new album.
Federale is a seven-piece ensemble based in Portland, OR. Spearheaded by longtime Brian Jonestown Massacre bassist Collin Hegna, the band was conceived as an outlet to channel inspiration from ‘60s & ‘70s European soundtracks, particularly those from Italy made famous by the Spaghetti Western & Giallo genres.
