It’s the second single from their upcoming album Solace, set to drop on 27th August via Arising Empire.
Alongside the single comes its brand new music video. It was made with videographer Marius Milinski and follows the story that began in their first single, Rite of Passage.
Solace was produced by Christoph Wieczorek (Annisokay). It follows on from their debut LP, Aspire.
“We wanted to be more metal,” says heavy vocalist Robin.”There were some pop sensibilities of Aspire we wanted to replace with rather the opposite.”
“2020 showed all of us how much the band is helping us keep our sanity. Almost the whole band went through minor or medium crises since the release of our debut. Relationships went sour, things ended and began. In times like these, our second album was the light at the end of the tunnel. Something we all could look forward to. Our music held our heads above water.”
Venues recently underwent some massive lineup changes, welcoming two members- clean vocalist Lela and guitarist Valentin. Their last vocalist Nyves quit the band mid-tour, following the release of Aspire.
Solace will be available on CD and limited colour vinyl. Pre-orders are available now.
