Profit Prison - Right To Know

These two songs were recorded during the early stages of this project and have been resurrected by Freiburg’s Slow Club. RIGHT TO KNOW was written and recorded in late 2017 and saw an official release on the “Cost of Living” cassette released by Heavy Days. It is an exploration of the psychic cost of grief, inspired by select pieces of gothic literature. COLD WORLD, the b-side, was the first Profit Prison song written and it appeared on the MYRA cassette released by Hospital Productions in 2017.

Profit Prison - Six Strange Passions

Profit Prison is the solo work of Seattle-based Parker Lautenschlager, previously in the hardcore band Marrow, power electronics act Anteinferno, and black metal cult Bhereg.

Conceived in 2016, Profit Prison explores lyrical themes of isolation, estrangement, deprivation and paranoia against an aural backdrop of synthpop, post-punk and abstract industrial music.

Inspired by Franz Kafka as much as Kraftwerk, Profit Prison achieves a cold minimalism that speaks to the nightmarish dystopia in which it was created.
