Progressive power metal mashers Witherfall are back. With an as of yet unnamed fourth studio album looming on the horizon, they’ve dropped a new song and accompanying music video, “Insidious.”
As you can find out for yourself by checking out the video below, “Insidious” pretty much lives up to its namesake, offering up a punishing nearly seven minute listen. It’s loud, it’s heavy, it’s melodic, and it’s the first single for an as of yet unnamed new album expected to release in the near future.
The song, and aforementioned upcoming album, will be the band’s follow up to their 2021 full-length studio effort Curse of Autumn. According to the band, the circumstances surrounding the writing and recording of “Insidious” was a long process, to say the least.
“After a crazy writing and recording spree that had us crisscrossing the USA and working in five different states, we present to you perhaps the most involved Witherfall production to date. ‘Insidious’ is the first single from our fourth full length album.
“The song was birthed at four in the morning under a foggy full moon in a stream of consciousness with the central theme and musical landscape written/improvised in a single take. The contrasting consonance and dissonance in the composition takes listeners on a decent into madness. The song was recorded with all analog instruments and was co-produced by Zeuss. The video produced by both Bradley Cooper and Cig Neutron represents the pervasive malaise and general sense of division in our current culture. We wish we could say no puppets were harmed during the making of this video…”
In addition to today’s announcement, the band revealed that they’re putting out a special wine called the Witherfall Tempest Red Blend Vintage 2021. Featuring a blend of Petite Sirah, Syrah, Nebbiolo, and Zinfandel grown in Dulzura, California, the wine uses only organic grapes and is harvested and processed organically. Each limited edition bottle will be hand-numbered by the band.
If you’d like to get your hand on the wine, be sure to check out Witherfall’s Tempest Red Blend webpage.
