Backxwash has released a new album, His Happiness Shall Come First Even Though We Are Suffering, to celebrate Halloween. It’s described as the final album in a trilogy that began with 2020’s God Has Nothing To Do With This Leave Him Out Of It and continued with last year’s I Lie Here Buried With My Rings And My Dresses. The new LP features guest contributions from Vaelastrasz, Morgan-Paige, Michael Go, PUPIL SLICER, Censored Dialogue, Sadistik, and Ghais Guevara. Its cover art was created by Chachi Revah, who also handled the artwork for the last two albums. Stream it below.
In a statement accompanying the new album, Backxwash wrote:
I thank you all for coming on this journey with me. I have grown a lot from a musical and just mental perspective over my time producing these albums. At this time, I would like to take a break and just soak everything that has happened in. I realized I have not gotten an opportunity to do that and If I keep going on at this pace it will be a detriment to my mental stability. These songs take me to a very dark place and writing about these topics at times is not an easy task. I thank everyone for having the patience of listening to these thoughts over the years. I would like to thank all of you for coming with me on this journey.
I love you all.
