Today, the world is presented with a New Wave of Folk Rock. CELLARDARLING confidently fuse heavy alternative rock with strong folk influences and poetic lyrical tales, and have grown out of the ashes of their previous band to release their debut album ‘This Is The Sound’ into the world. AnnaMurphy, MerlinSutter and IvoHenzi present the lyric video of ‘TheHermit‘: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rYYMFu1vuO0
“‘Hoi polloi’ is a Greek expression meaning ‘the many’. “The Hermit” is a song about the love of solitude and indisposition felt within society and towards other people”, the band explains their new song. And with great hope for the future they add:
“Almost exactly one year after CELLAR DARLING came into existence, we could not be more proud to finally share our first album with you. It’s been an intense, sometimes difficult, but always rewarding year – and first and foremost an incredibly creative one. We think you can hear it all on the album. And we can’t wait to hear what you think about it. Now our focus lies on one thing, and one thing only: getting back on stage and celebrating our music with you, the best fans in the world – we can’t wait to see you on the road!”
The debut album This Is The Sound will be released on June 30th 2017 via Nuclear Blast records and you can pre-order the album now!
In addition, the band released the first part of their album documentary “Out of the cellar, into the light”. Part 1, entitled “This is who we are”, is a great insight into the band’s past, the three characters who formed the band and the glue that holds them together.
In July and August, CELLAR DARLING will conquer the European stages and support the legendary EVANESCENCE in Pratteln, before heading over to several summer festivals. The band has just announced 2 headline shows in Switzerland this September, so get your tickets while they last!
The Swiss will also open for DELAIN this fall in Europe, during their very special tour featuring MarcoHietala (NIGHTWISH).
