WILLIAM THE CONQUEROR announce new single and reveal the title of their forthcoming Ethan Johns produced album.
Memories make us who we are – they are the story of our lives – but we also find ways to deal with trauma by hiding from tough realities, and the hardest stories to tell are the ones we have to painstakingly piece together from the shards and splinters of long-buried memories. On their new single, William the Conqueror delve deep in to the darkest recesses, gathering clues to unravel a mystery of misplaced worship, adolescence, addiction and the road to recovery.
Bleeding on the Soundtrack is the first track to appear from their forthcoming album of the same name, recorded at Real World and produced by Ethan Johns (Ryan Adams, Kings of Leon, Laura Marling, The Jayhawks).
Laid down in one blistering take, the track builds from controlled intensity to an explosive climax as Naomi Holmes’ looping bass and Harry Harding’s powerhouse drums drive Ruarri Joseph’s vocals to deliver the soulful confessions of the song’s dramatic narrative.
The band play at Leeds Oporto on November 25th.
