Brady Deeprose On New Conjurer Album: “It Is A Truly Miserable, Hopeless Record”

During a recent interview with Metal Hammer, Conjurer’s Brady Deeprose discussed the band’s upcoming album. According to him, the effort “is a truly miserable, hopeless record.”

Deeprose said the following when asked if the group felt pressured about making a follow-up to “Mire“:

“I don’t think so, no. We do feel really good about the songs, but it is a truly miserable, hopeless record. It really mirrors the mood of the year I think – you know I love playing live, that’s where I’m happiest, and we haven’t been able to do that for ages. Also, I’m moving to a different country and getting married and trying to do that in a pandemic is incredibly stressful, so there’s a lot of frustration in these songs.”

He also added:

“I know every band will tell you ‘It’s the heaviest thing we’ve ever done!’, but we’ve been so fucked off with the state of everything that it has just made us write these really vile and disgusting songs. I think we’ve got a bit better at knowing exactly what we want to achieve as songwriters, so I think there’s less fat on them and they do everything we want them to do in a much more condensed way. But, they’re hopeless, nasty, miserable songs, even more so than the last record. It’s really quite extreme. There’s some obvious Converge worship on the record, too. That’s kind of the vibe we’re going for: super-heavy, technically wild, super-bleak.”

Conjurer Sign With Nuclear Blast Records

Conjurer have signed a new worldwide deal with Nuclear Blast Records. The band’s new album will be released through the label later this year.

Brady Deeprose commented:

“Conjurer are extremely excited to partner with Nuclear Blast worldwide for the forthcoming release of our second album. Having spent the last year or so getting to know Monte Conner, we count ourselves lucky to be working with not only a true legend in the world of heavy music but one who continues to champion exciting, forward-thinking art.

We’ve now also been introduced to Barley and the rest of the international team at NB and it’s evident that they understand our mentality and want nothing more than to support and nourish our creativity. In what has been an awful year on so many levels, we are grateful to have found the right home for our music.

We look forward to working together with NB to bring you our sophomore album in 2021, and much more in the years to follow.”
