Hertfordshire based alternative metal band Defences have released their brutal and confrontational new single In The Black. The track is taken from their new album In The Balance which is set for release on 15th October 2021.
Defences latest offering sees the band looking inwards, tackling loss and grief head-on. Vocalist Cherry Duesbury comments “In The Black dives into the darker side of loss and the effects it can have on us. Unexpectedly losing important people can feel like the end of your world, or like a part of or all of you has been taken with them. This song explores the thoughts and feelings that can come while grieving.” Cherry adds in conclusion “Even when at our lowest points, there is something that drives us forward, wakes us up every day and keeps us breathing… There’s still sunlight, even behind the darkest of clouds.”
They will perform at The Key Club in Leeds on 21st September 2021.
