Cemeteries is the solo project of Kyle J. Reigle, whose music blends dream pop with goth rock, a combination that he refers to as goth pop.

A product of his Buffalo, New York environment, he recorded his debut album over the course of six months in the guest bedroom of his apartment, looking to the music of David Lynch collaborator Angelo Badalamenti, vintage horror films, and some nearby wooded areas for inspiration.

A gloomy but visually arresting video by Nolan Wilson Goff was tied to the title track of 2012's The Wilderness, which was appropriately released in late October.
