Palm Reader have dropped another track from their upcoming new album 'Sleepless', alongside an incredible visual.
'Willow' is a haunting epic that brims with gorgeous atmosphere before bursting into life with guttural intent and post-metal melodies.
It's another example of just how far the band have pushed with this new record and proof that no sound is off limits.
Vocalist Josh Mckeown had this to say about the track and how it came from a heartbreaking place:
“‘Willow’ was written after I’d been told a heartbreaking story of loss and young motherhood. I wrote it with the intention of illuminating the strength of any mother in that unfortunate position and to offer a permanent gesture of respect to them. It was one of the first songs we wrote for Sleepless and it definitely helped set the tone musically for a lot of what was to come.”
“We’ve put together a music video with the help and expertise of our good friend and collaborator Sam Lees. His creativity and vision will further highlight the lyrical content and the sentiment attached to the song.”
Check out that music video below:
'Sleepless' is scheduled for release on November 27 via Church Road Records.
