Falconer Debuts New LP’s Second Single, ‘Kings & Queens’

Falconer debuted the latest single from its new album this week.

The band debuted its new single ‘Kings & Queens‘ Wednesday.  The song is the second single from the band’s forthcoming album From A Dying Ember, which is scheduled for release June 26 through Metal Blade Records.  The band debuted the album’s lead single ‘Desert Dreams‘ last month.

Audiences familiar with the song’s catalog will find this song’s musical arrangement familiar, with its folk metal approach.The song’s lyrical content comes across as delivering a message of hope and inspiration.  This is inferred in the song’s lead verse as front man Mathias Blad sings, “Spinning round and around/Caught in a trap/In a lazy, mundane life where the master’s the slave/Striving on through the dark and into the light/Each day that passes by/Lost in the void of the night.”  He adds in the song’s second verse, “Even the simplest of goals and the simplest of days/Can be reached in a manner that enlightens the way/Don’t let the wheel of life turn off your mind/But grasp hold of your fate And leave old pathways behind.”

Additionally, he sings in the song’s chorus, “Take command and rise from slumber/Our time must not waste away/We’re the rulers of our destinies/We’re the kings and queens of our day/Take command and rise from slumber/Our time must not waste away/We’re the rulers of our destinies/We’re the kings and queens of our day”
