Speaking on the album announcement, Simon Barr (vocals, violin, synths) comments: “This record has been transformative for us, it is Dawn Ray’d, black metal and protest music entirely reimagined. Writing these songs has helped us process the times we are living through, the chaos that swirls around us, and has given us new resolve and a clearer perspective on how we continue to find love and joy in disordered times. We cannot wait to share that catharsis with the world, we will be a poison if we cannot be a cure!”
