Skullcrusher Announces Debut Album ‘Quiet the Room’, Releases New Song

    Helen Ballentine has announced her debut album as Skullcrusher: Quiet the Room arrives October 14 via Secretly Canadian. Lead single ‘Whatever Fits Together’ is accompanied by a video by Silken Weinberg. Check it out and find the album artwork and tracklist below.

    “I wrote ‘Whatever Fits Together’ while reflecting on my past and wondering how I might begin to explain it to someone,” Ballentine explained in a statement. “I viewed my younger self through a wash of emotions: anger, sadness, pity, confusion, all reaching for a kind of compassion. I tried to capture the contradictions that comprise my past and define who I am now. As I looked back, I saw my life in pieces: some moments blacked out, some extremely vivid, some leading nowhere. Through the song I attempt to piece it together in some non-linear form and accept my disparate story.”

    Quiet the Room will follow 2020’s Skullcrusher EP and 2021’s Storm in Summer EP.
