MUSIC NEWS: Defences Announce New Album Details & Release ‘False Gods’ Music Video
Alt-metallers Defences have announced their new album In The Balance is set for release on 15th October 2021. Alongside the album announcement they have released a video for new single False Gods.
Discussing the album, lyricist and vocalist Cherry Duesbury explains “We wrote this because we need to” with the release touching on experiences over the last few years. “A lot of the lyrics are based on internal struggles,” adds co-vocalist William Alex Young whilst Duesbury continues “It’s incredibly honest. It’s the most honest I have ever been in terms of lyrics.”
New single False Gods was inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, with Duesbury explaining “I was listening to Calum’s demo on repeat around that time. I didn’t plan on writing about it at all. It was the day after a protest on this hill that I used to spend my Friday nights on as a teenager. It was packed full of people, and when I saw these pictures and videos I started crying. I couldn’t believe there were so many people this close to home showing their support. It made me think about how we are all just human. So, I wanted to write a song about humans, and calling some of them out for the way they have been behaving.”
