Singaporean doom/stoner metal band Marijannah have released a live video of ‘Full Moon’ and ‘Shapeless’, taken from their upcoming album ‘Istanah Live At The Projector’.
On Monday (October 26), the four-piece announced the live album, which captures their 2019 album ‘Istanah’ performed in its entirety. They recorded it in August at the independent movie theatre The Projector with no audience present, the band revealed on Instagram.

The six-track album lands on November 13, along with full video of the performance. It was directed by Ryan Chang, the touring photographer and videographer of Grammy-winning band Ghost, and audio recorded by Snakeweed Studios.
The band decided to record ‘Istanah Live At The Projector’ after they were forced to cancel all touring plans to promote ‘Istanah’ due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Before the pandemic hit, Marijannah had announced an April/May tour of Australia’s east coast with Aussie band Potion, with whom they toured Southeast Asia in 2018.
Marijannah comprises guitarist Rasyid Juraimi (also of acclaimed grindcore trio Wormrot), drummer and vocalist Nicholas Wong (currently also of Blood Pact, formerly of The Caufield Cult), guitarist “Skinny” Nicholas Ng, and Muhammad Azri on bass.
The band debuted in 2017 with the single ‘Snakecharmer’, which appeared on their debut album ‘Till Marijannah’ in 2018. In 2019, they followed up with ‘Istanah’, which was released on Cursed Tongue Records.
