KING APATHY (former-Thränenkind) reveal first album details and teaser
KING APATHY are back with their third album and the first one after having changed their band name from THRÄNENKIND. The album, entitled “Wounds”, is set to be released on February 22nd, 2019 via Lifeforce Records. Preorder starts December 14th.
Having released two albums under the name of Thränenkind – “The Elk” (2013) and “King Apathy” (2016) – “Wounds” is the first full-length album under the new bandname.
The songs of KING APATHY are still the kind of music for which the band is known and appreciated. They still draw their inspirations from a lot of different genres such as melodic metal, post black metal, doom, neo-crust, post rock, shoegaze and hardcore punk. Nevertheless the new album “Wounds” is more complex than its predecessors and you will have to listen several times before all its secrets are revealed.
The atmosphere is dark and oppressive. On the surface it’s not a “violent” album, but the songs have an intense after-effect. They will leave you restless and will haunt you for quite some time.
