Pallbearer Detail New Album ‘Forgotten Days’, Share New Song

    Doom metal outfit Pallbearer have announced their follow-up to 2017’s Heartless. It’s called Forgotten Days and it’s set for release on October 23 via Nuclear Blast. The band have also shared a new video for the title track, directed by Ben Meredith. Watch ‘Forgotten Days’ below, and check out the album’s cover art and tracklist.

    Speaking about the new track, singer/guitarist Brett Campbell said in a statement: “The video for ‘Forgotten Days’ tells the story of an unfortunate traveler who journeys too far, and becomes lost in the depths of both inner, and outer, space. What is real when you cannot trust your own mind?”

    Discussing the themes of the new album, bassist Joseph Rowland added: “Forgotten Days is us exploring what is natural to us. The songs tell me where I need to go when I write. We wanted to focus on songs that were visceral and enjoyable to play live—that our audiences would enjoy experiencing. We’re also getting back to more of the groovier and heavier elements of Pallbearer. Heartless is fairly uptempo and technical. This one is a little more open, it hammers you.”

    He continued by saying that the record is thematically connected to the band’s previous material. “When we were writing Sorrow and Extinction, my mother was terminally ill,” he said. “It’s been 10 years since she passed. It’s taken me all of this time to take a really good look at myself. While we were writing Forgotten Days, I knew, “Now is the time to sit down and begin to understand who I have become.”
