MUSIC NEWS: Death Blooms Announce Debut Album & Release New Single ‘Shut Up’
Death Blooms have announced their debut album Life Is Pain, due for release on 22nd October 2021 via Adventure Cat Records.
“We recorded the album last year with David Radahd-Jones in Manchester at Red City, which seems like a lifetime ago at this point,” says vocalist Paul Barrow. “We’ve been in the exact same position as everyone else: raring to go, but waiting for the right moment. These songs were all written before what’s happened in the last 18 months, but I feel like they’ve been given a new meaning and a new lease of life, and I’m hoping that’ll resonate with everyone who hears them. Initially, we had intended to release a 13 track album, but we had to adapt and think fast, so we decided to split off a few songs, which ended up being our EP, Fuck Everything, that was released earlier this year. I do still feel like these songs are part of the album, so we’ll be giving them as much live love as the actual album tracks. I just didn’t want anyone to feel short-changed, so we decided to run with things as differently as we could for the album. The songs really are a delve into torment, human psyche, catharsis and release.”
In light of the announcement, the metal outfit have released their new single Shut Up.
“This is a bite back at the shit-stains on society who look down on other people and who think they’re somehow better, and treat others as if they’re worthless,” adds Barrow. “You might think you’re special, but you’re wrong. You’re just the same as me.”
