MUSIC NEWS: Pridelands Announce Debut Album & Release Video For New Single ‘The Lake Of Twisted Limbs’
Australian metal quintet Pridelands have announced their debut album Light Bends, due for release on 14th January 2021 via SharpTone Records.
“Light Bends is a very personal record for us in every sense of the word,” the band explains. “The lyrics, the instrumentals, the melodies were all written because they were stories that we wanted to tell and songs that we wanted to hear. It delves into a lot of subjects, and a lot of them came from our collective life experiences. It was therapeutic for all of us to come together, share our pain and trauma and weave it together it into our debut record. There’s nothing we would change about it and the team we worked with to make it happen are incredible from top to bottom. We sincerely hope that the people out there who listen to it can connect to Light Bends emotionally in the way that we have.”
In light of the announcement, the band have released a video for their new single The Lake of Twisted Limbs.
“The Lake of Twisted Limbs was a song that in a lot of ways came naturally in the writing process but took an emotional toll on all of us,” the band adds. “It’s about attempting to pull someone back from the brink of total self-destruction and how ultimately that attempt is futile if that person refused to be saved. Getting better is sadly a choice that someone needs to make for themselves. So, in essence, the song is about reaching out despite being aware of the futility there. I think we’ve all felt that in one way or another – perhaps from both sides of the coin.”
