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 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:
