Witherfall Premiere “Moment Of Silence” Video

Witherfall have premiered a new video for their new song “Moment Of Silence.” This track is from the band’s new album “A Prelude To Sorrow,” which will be released on November 2.

The band commented:

“Like our first single off of “A Prelude to Sorrow”, ‘Ode to Despair’, ‘Moment of Silence’ continues on with our dark tale of the last days of WITHERFALL drummer Adam Sagan. This song deals with the anger we felt towards not being able to control what the eventual outcome could be. The chorus was the first thing that came during the writing of this song. Joseph had chorus melody and progression written and actually showed it to Adam during the last visit they shared. Though the dark irony was not lost on him he loved the idea. ‘Moment of Silence’ went through multiple demo iterations before the one that is found on “A Prelude to Sorrow” was officially arranged and finalized by Jake and Joseph in Florida during the recording of ‘The Long Walk Home (December)’ in November of 2017. In our recent poll you had asked for a track that is “violent with a big chorus” well, here it is.”


Witherfall Tease New Song “Moment Of Silence”

Witherfall have posted a teaser for their new song “Moment Of Silence.” The full track will debut on October 5. The band’s new album “A Prelude To Sorrow” will be released on November 2.

Witherfall Premiere “Ode To Despair” Video

Witherfall have premiered a new video for their new song “Ode To Despair.” This track is from the band’s new album “A Prelude To Sorrow,” which will be released on November 2. The group commented:

“‘Ode To Despair’ was the first composition that was completed for ‘A Prelude To Sorrow’, so it only seems fitting to start off with this track. Its origin traces back to around 2016 when we were figuring out what to do with [late drummer Adam] Sagan being sick and unable to perform. Fueled by red wine and only a glimmer of the sorrow that was to come, ‘Ode’ took only one writing session to complete. The video was shot over the two-month span that we were in the studio tracking ‘A Prelude To Sorrow’ and watching the video brings you into the world we inhabited for what seems like an eternity… Special thanks to Don Adams and his masochistic tendencies and keen editor’s eye.”

Witherfall To Release New Album “A Prelude To Sorrow” In November

Witherfall have announced that they will be releasing their new album “A Prelude To Sorrow” on November 2. A trailer for the effort can be found below:

The band commented:

“‘A Prelude To Sorrow’ is a concept record, though not in the sense that most people have come to know the form. Ours is not a story where each song acts as a chapter. The inspiration lays in the supremely dark reality that was the passing of our drummer and one of our best friends, Adam Sagan. These songs are raw emotional reflections, composed in the witching hours under the influence of wine and sorrow, while watching and helping our friend fight and ultimately lose his battle with lymphoma. ‘Nocturnes And Requiems’ was dedicated to Adam after the fact. ‘A Prelude To Sorrow’ is written specifically about his and our personal tragedy. Like ‘Nocturnes and Requiems’, the songs have been arranged to still have the peaks and valleys that any great record should. With ‘Prelude’, these peaks just might be a little steeper and the valleys might be a little deeper, alternating between violence and beauty. The titles initials are an acronym for ‘Adam Paul Sagan.’ He came up with ‘Nocturnes And Requiems’ so we suppose it is kind of fitting that he also inspired this title. Hope he doesn’t come knocking on our door for royalties. We hope that this will be a fitting requiem for our friend and talented musician.”

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.
