Sorrow Plagues Release New Video 'Relinquish' & Reveal Album Launch Show Details



Sorrow Plagues Release New Video 'Relinquish' From Forthcoming Album 'Homecoming'


Sorrow Plagues have released a new music video for the song 'Relinquish' which is the first single from the upcoming album 'Homecoming'.

'Homecoming' is the second full-length album to be self-released by Sorrow Plagues, the Brainchild of British musician David Lovejoy on May 27th. The album ventures into new territory with added elements of post-rock, and even including some contemporary influences, whilst still maintaining the atmospheric Black Metal sounds that Sorrow Plagues is known for. This is David Lovejoy's most ambitious effort so far.

Lovejoy talks about the meaning of the song: "The song is about the importance of living in the present moment and realising that being stuck in the past and worrying about the future is the cause of a lot of our problems. I got the idea for writing lyrics on the topic whilst reading "A New Earth" by Eckhart Tolle."

The video was filmed by Luke Bateman.




Lovejoy has recently gathered some talented and like-minded musicians to fully showcase Sorrow Plagues in a live environment, with their first gig being announced to play Bar 42 in Worthing as a free entry album launch show on May 24th, a few days before the album is released. A Night In The Abyss and Them Broads have also been announced to play with more announcements to come. Full details can be found here

Lovejoy on the release show, "I'm very excited about releasing the album at Bar 42, it's a venue I've loved going to for years and playing shows there has given me plenty of experience in previous bands."

Later in the year, Sorrow Plagues will support Fen, Aklash and Conform To Serve at the Green Door Store in Brighton this November. A string of dates are currently being booked to support the release of 'Homecoming'.

'Homecoming' is due to be released on May 27th on Bandcamp, iTunes, Spotify and many other digital outlets.

EX-HIM Frontman Ville Valo Reveals New Band & Album

Ville has teamed up with Esa Pulliainen, guitarist with veteran Finnish band Agents, to record an album of songs inspired by late Finnish rock’n’roll singer Rauli Badding Somerjoki.

“This story begins three years ago,” says Pulliainen, whose band played with Badding in the 80s. “Upon finding three demo cassettes in my drawer which had been sent to me by Badding back in the day, I knew I had to contact Ville right from the get-go. I was aware he knows his Badding inside out. I'm really happy that we were able to finalize this project. Badding meant for these songs to be recorded and even if it took us 30 years to make that happen, I feel I've kept my promise."
