MUSIC NEWS: Lakes Announce New Album & Release Video For Title Track ‘Start Again’
Lakes have announced their new album Start Again is set for release on 30th July 2021 through Big Scary Monsters (UK) and Know Hope Records (US).
Alongside the announcement of their new album, the band have shared a video for the title track which also acts as the lead single for the release. It addresses the impact of Covid-19 and the lockdowns the nation has faced due to it, “During lockdown last year my mental health was really suffering, and as a result I had been self-medicating pretty hard. There’s a collective suffering right now which makes it harder to relate to an individual’s story, but this was my outlet.” says lead vocalist Roberto Cappellina.
The album was produced and mixed by Neil Strauch (Owen, Owls, Joan Of Arc, Slow Mass) and Cappellina explains: “This batch of songs has been a vehicle for healing for all six of us in some way, so there are a lot of different but raw themes throughout the record. Even though we’re currently all isolated from each other, the one person you can’t escape is yourself,”. On the themes of the release, Cappellina continues: “We talk about anything from mental health to addiction; from break ups to cutting out toxic friends, to postpartum psychosis. We’ve been to some dark places between us, but ultimately, ‘Start Again’ is about coming out the other side. This record is about facing that darkness, owning it and letting go of the past. It’s about being at peace with it and moving forward and saying that it’s actually OK to start again.”
