"These are songs of reflection, loss, regret, and loneliness."
156/SILENCE have revealed that they are releasing a new EP next month.
'Don't Hold Your Breath' will be dropping on October 29 via SharpTone Records.
Guitarist Ryan Wilkinson had this to say about it:
"In 2020 the world went into lockdown, and widespread panic ensued. Many of us were isolated from our family, friends, and the lives we knew as we watched it all unfold. A lot of us experienced overwhelming feelings of fear, anxiety, helplessness, and uncertainty as we retreated further into ourselves. We as a band found something in that isolation, in the darkness of our thoughts. These are songs of reflection, loss, regret, and loneliness. At the end you might ask yourself if it was all just a dream? To that we say, 'Don’t Hold Your Breath.'"
The artwork looks like this:
And the tracklisting like this:
01. Beginning’s End (Nobody’s Home)
02. A Violent Delight
03. The Wrong Sense
04. Coup De Grâce (The Final Blow)
You can hear 'The Wrong Sense' right now, which is a calloused and emotional cathartic slab of post-hardcore fury and fear.
Vocalist Jack Murray had this to say about it:
"Moments of weakness. A lapse of efficacy. The feelings of uncertainty and doubt that seem to only flourish once spoken. An innate aptitude to surmise the collapse: The Wrong Sense."
