Loathe Team Up With Teenage Wrist For New Version Of “Is It Really You?”

Loathe have teamed up with Teenage Wrist for a new version of their song “Is It Really You?.” The original version of the track appears on Loathe’s 2020 album “I Let It In and It Took Everything.”

Teenage Wrist’s Marshall Gallagher commented:

“We discovered ‘I Let It In and It Took Everything‘ while we were tracking ‘Earth Is a Black Hole‘, and it immediately became one of my favorite records of that year. Honestly, I only listened deep to a handful of records while we were making ours and that was one of them. So, it was pretty wild to get to dig through the actual tracks and do our own interpretation of ‘Is It Really You?‘ I was already such a big fan and that song in particular really hit me. It’s extra cool to know that we’re fans of each other’s music and hopefully we get to share a stage soon.”

Loathe added:

“Teenage Wrist are great! We’ve been fans of their music for a while and soon after the release of their latest record, we caught wind that they’d be interested in collaborating with us. And so their take on ‘Is It Really You?‘ was born. It’s interesting to hear our song through another artists respective lens, especially from artists you appreciate and enjoy, too.”

Loathe Premiere New Song “Dimorphous Display”

Loathe have premiered a new song titled “Dimorphous Display.” You can check that out below:

The band commented:

“‘Dimorphous Display‘, in its first iteration, had been in the vault for a good few years before we decided to start work on the song together as a band, so finally being able to release it into the world feels like a great accomplishment.

The initial demo was filed soon after we had finished up with ‘I Let It In and It Took Everything‘ but with lockdowns occurring across the world, this gave us the opportunity to experiment with different collaborators and thus final tracking was completed some time in the middle of 2021 at Giant Wafer Studios.

We worked alongside our new friend Eddie Al-Shakarchi on capturing the rawest incarnation of the Loathe sound to date and we are very happy with the result.”

Guitarist Connor Sweeney Exits Loathe

Loathe have parted ways with guitarist Connor Sweeney. A replacement has yet to be announced.

Loathe commented:

“Loathe regretfully announce the departure of Connor Sweeney.

We would like to thank Connor for his contributions and commitment to Loathe over the years and wish him the best in his future endeavours.

The remaining tour dates with While She Sleeps will continue as planned. Thank you for your continued support.”

Sweeney added:

“Hello internet. Today I can’t believe I’m saying this, but with the largest stone in my throat and a leaden heart, I’ve decided to part ways with Loathe. Thank you to everyone who has ever supported me in this band and in music as it means everything to me. Without music i wouldn’t be alive. Seriously.

I am not dead musically as I have something I’m working on, that I will be putting what’s left of my heart and soul into after what has been a harrowing ordeal this past year.

I thought some things might have changed with time within the band but unfortunately in this case things continued to stay the same. So as to preserve my own well being and mental health I have decided to leave.

Thank you to all who have ever been there in any and every way, It really really does mean more than I could ever describe. I WILL be back with new music and hopefully playing shows again once all is ready.

A massive thank you to Ryan Richards for being the greatest manager and making my personal dreams a reality.

Another massive thank you to Zack McAdam, Lewis Chalmers and Josh Singh for always being such amazing people and crew to work with.

Thank you for reading.

Loathe Surprise Release New Ambient/Instrumental Album “The Things They Believe”

Loathe have surprise released a new album titled “The Things They Believe“. The ambient/instrumental record can be found on the service of your choice HERE.

The band commented:

“The concept for ‘The Things They Believe‘ was born from the incredible response to ‘I Let It In And It Took Everything‘, which became the impetus to extend the identity and timeline of the record. Creating sonic landscapes and parallels that explore and expand further on the areas within ‘I Let It In And It Took Everything’.

As we release this collection of atmospheres, we hope you lose yourself further within this chapter and, much like our love for soundtracks and soundscapes provides us with solace in times of distress and need, we hope you find comfort inside too.”

The group also further discussed the album with Kerrang!:

Feisal El-Khazragi:

“We’ve always been into ambient music. When we hit lockdown, and there was that pressure to do something different, we weren’t really fans of what other bands were doing in terms of livestreams and all that. I guess what fans would’ve expected would be a ‘regular album’. We thought it would be cool to do something more unexpected, while also tapping into that element of ambient sound that’s already baked into the band.”

Erik Bickerstaffe:

“The idea has been around for ages. It’s kind of a mix-and-match of ideas amassed over a long period of time. Some elements were taken from sessions for I Let It In… Some ideas originated ages ago.”

Kadeem France:

“This album is so different to anything we’ve done before and I knew that the [ambient, instrumental] side of things was more the forte of Erik and Feisal, so I was happy to take a back seat and just let them do their thing. I knew and trusted in their abilities. As a band, we’re all on the same level when it comes to making our music. I definitely had some input, though. The track title The Year When Everything And Nothing Happened came from me.”

Loathe Premiere New Song “Screaming”

Loathe have premiered a new song titled “Screaming.” This track is from the band’s new album “I Let It In And It Took Everything,” which will be released on February 7. Erik Bickerstaffe commented:

“Much like its surrounding family of tracks, ‘Screaming‘ offers a brand new perspective and identity for Loathe. However, still retaining the familiar twists and turns that have developed throughout our time creating together as a collective.”

Loathe Premiere “Two-Way Mirror” Video

Loathe have premiered a new video for their new song “Two-Way Mirror.” This track is from the band’s new album “I Let It In And It Took Everything,” which will be released on February 7. The group commented:

“It was our intention throughout the creative process to push the Loathe lore into different territories, some previously explored and some almost brand new for the band. With that mindset we birthed ‘Two-Way Mirror‘ – one of the many faces throughout ‘I Let It In And It Took Everything‘.”
