Prison Religion

PRISON RELIGION is the collaborative project of Richmond-based audio/visual artists Poozy and False Prpht.

Working together since 2016, the duo have dived deep into the space between blown-out trap (2016’s Cage With Mirrored Bars) and contemporary destructive club music (2018’s O Fucc Im On The Wrong Planet).

Since linking up with Texas-based experimental label Halcyon Veil, they've connected a global crews of likeminded collaborators for a remix album including Rabit, Endgame, Swan Meat, Lee Gamble and Bonaventure. With close ties to Richmond-based NON Worldwide, P_R are also ushering in a new wave of vocal-based club performance.

Press

The barely tonal beats of tracks like "Shots Fired" have this way of making it feel like the 808s are falling apart or dissociating, like a crowd dispersing as Jones and Black spin kick in the center… acid drenched tracks draw on the history of industrial music, metal iconography and experimental club music. – Noisey

Prison Religion are one of the most hardcore, rap-related acts we've heard in years. No cock out business, just Philip Best levels of mic-burning bile and vitriol shrieked and expectorated over bludgeoning beats, field recordings and charred electronics. – Boomkat

It’s a noisy, industrial, mess of cathartic, raging. Hardcore Punk music for club kids. – Passion Of The Weiss
