If you haven’t heard of Holy Fawn, they’re easily one of the best bands out there. Categorized as something between blackgaze and doomgaze, they seamlessly blend loud and noisy with soothing melody. If you’re looking for somewhere to start, let’s put it this way, they don’t have a bad song in their catalog.
Earlier this year, Holy Fawn dropped a brand new single to support the band’s U.S. tour with Deafheaven. Today, a second track has been shared with the announcement of the band’s hotly-anticipated new LP.
“Holy Fawn, the Phoenix-based band whose 2018 DIY release, Death Spells, earned the fledgling foursome widespread recognition from both colleagues and writers, return with the eagerly-awaited album, Dimensional Bleed, out September 9 via Wax Bodega.
“News of the 10-song album’s impending arrival is met with the release of a second single, the title track “Dimensional Bleed”.
“We’re always going to be the same four humans making music,” explains singer/guitar player Ryan Osterman of the collection that they co-produced with Mike Watts (Dillinger Escape Plan, Glassjaw). “With every release, I feel like we’ve continued to learn how to best support each other both mentally and musically, which enables us to try new things. Personally, I think this record has truly allowed us to explore more creative avenues than we did with Death Spells.”
“’Dimensional Bleed’ vaguely refers to a concept of multiple dimensions and timelines that could exist simultaneously,” adds guitar player Evan Phelps. “A lot of different media has alluded to this ideology, and I find the possibility of multiple dimensions intersecting and bleeding into others to be fascinating.”
