Acres release ‘Talking In Your Sleep’ video ahead of tour with Casey

Post-hardcore rockers Acres have shared the new track ‘Talking In Your Sleep’, taken from eagerly awaited debut album Lonely World, which is set for release August 9th via A Wolf At Your Door Records.

Vocalist Ben Lumber explains, “The song is about being lied to by someone who you think really cares about you. When you think everything is perfect, in reality it’s really not. Talking in your sleep is a metaphor for the words and lies subtly unravelling self-consciously.”

The accompanying video was filmed in Latvia; “We wanted something that suited the emotion behind the song”, Ben continues, “raw, passionate and empty.”

Acres have now formed a sound that balances the metal with the melodic, with a heavy dose of emotionally-charged intensity that’s compelling and addictive.

The story-telling mastery and vocal power of frontman Ben Lumber draws listeners to his words, while bandmates – sound-designer and guitarists Theo Sandberg and Alex Freeman and drummer Konnor Bracher-Walsh – provide a rock-solid musical foundation.

Penned in just six months, the upcoming album pays homage to the lives they see and experience around them. The striking artwork is a perfect reflection of the record as it explores further into real life struggles, emotions and subjects throughout, including anxiety and depression, providing a hard-hitting soundtrack to those arduous days and nights.
