New Jersey-based metal band Lorna Shore is gearing up to release their sophomore full-length album, Flesh Coffin, on February 17, 2017 with Outerloop Records.
Musically, Lorna Shore set out to write a song that has an overall different vibe, purpose, and more emotional sound than the rest of the tracks featured on Flesh Coffin. “FVNERAL MOON” is a dark track about the ghost of a troubled man who has committed suicide due to his inability to live with the things he has done but cannot escape existence even in death, so he’s haunted to live as a ghost to humanity alive to witness pain forever. Drummer, Austin Archey states, “”FVNERAL MOON was the one song we were most excited about during the writing process. The song is by far the darkest, most melody driven song we have written yet. With the help from Director Joey Durango, we were able to capture a visual that perfectly portrays our vision.” View the masterful new music video here. Vocalist Tom Barber adds:
“Sometimes people forget, that beyond our jobs, everything we own or our social standings, We’re just people. Some of us damaged and simply trying to cover a wound so none can see weakness, and some of us just covered in scars just ashamed of their past wanting no one to see their mistakes. Everything has its way of surfacing in the end, and you are the master of your own fate. Whatever it may be, understand that everyone struggles, no one is perfect, and always acknowledge there is beauty in the struggle of life. Never give in to the darkness.” -Tom Barber
