Are you ready for something extraordinary?
Thornhill have announced their brand new album.
It’s going to be called ‘Heroine’ and will be dropping on June 03 via UNFD.
Vocalist Jacob Charlton had this to say about how he set about bringing the style and atmosphere of the record to life:
“I realised you’re not just singing your lyrics, you’re emoting. You’re conveying a message or a feeling not only through vocals, but through performance. Ethan [McCann, guitar/production] really brought that vibe to the instrumentation, and I was left thinking, ‘Oh, I can’t just sing or scream over this…. what can I do to match that energy he’s presented here, but in a way that people haven’t heard it in a metal setting?’ I realised I needed my own character. I needed to bring that Elvis-y confidence and emotion to my performance to really be able to bring people into the world of what I’m singing about.”
The artwork looks like this:
And the tracklisting like this:
01. The Hellfire Club
02. Leather Wings
03. Blue Velvet
07. Something Terrible Came With The Rain
10. Varsity Hearts
They’ve also shared a new taster track. That’s ‘Hollywood’, a dramatic, haunting, thrilling piece of eccentric post-hardcore wonderment. Pushing and pulling the band’s sonic desires into exciting and exhilarating new places, it is pretty astonishing.
Jacob had this to say about the track and its cinematic premise:
“The premise of this song follows a protagonist, who is coming to terms with being in love with another girl he’s just met while still being in a relationship that has been slowly falling apart around him. This one in a million encounter with someone who has changed his entire world in a matter of glances is the theme we follow throughout the song until he finally builds the courage to say it out loud. He makes little decisions, puts his current partner in a bad light to make himself feel like he’s in the right and calls her names as she begs him to announce his true feelings for someone he’s met on their trip to Hollywood.”
Here it is:
