Witherfall To Start Recording New Album “A Prelude To Sorrow” This Month

Witherfall have confirmed that they will be hitting the studio later this month to start the recording prcess for their second album “A Prelude To Sorrow.” That effort is tentatively set to be released in November and it will feature artwork from Krisitan Wåhlin. The band said the following:

“Witherfall have finished writing and are deep into pre-production of our second LP. On 15 May, Witherfall will head into the studio to self-produce our follow-up to ‘Nocturnes And Requiems’. Tracking and engineering wizardry will be handled by JJ Crews at Boogie Tracks studios in Panama City. The compositions are both melodically violent and beautifully aggressive with a much darker tone than ‘Nocturnes’. More news to follow…”


Witherfall Premiere “Portrait” Music Video

Witherall have premiered a new video for their track “Portrait.” This song is from the band’s album “Nocturnes And Requiems.”

The band commented:

“Witherfall never settle for anything less than perfection in everything we do. We have spent the last year searching for the right video production team. A writer/director who shared our epic vision of “Portrait”. With multiple locations, a cast and crew of over a dozen as well as adverse filming conditions notwithstanding; it was already an ambitious effort to do a music video like this in the current climate of the industry. To us, it was either go big or go home. We want to thank all of the cast and crew that handled “The Shining” like conditions of the “Portrait” music video production.”

In other news, the group have finished the song writing process for their next album, and are planning to enter the studio soon. The effort is expected to be released in fall 2018.
