Sunflower Dead is giving its audiences some more new music to enjoy over the weekend.
The band premiered its new single, ‘Falling Down‘ and its companion lyric video Friday. The song and its video are the second from the band’s forthcoming album, March of the Leper, which is expected for release in early 2022. The band premiered the album’s lead single, ‘The Underneath‘ and its video last month.
An exact release date for Sunflower Dead’s new album is under consideration. Pre-orders are open.
The musical arrangement featured in ‘Falling Down’ is just as heavy as that featured in ‘The Underneath’ if not even heavier. The gutteral screams and clean vocals pair with the intensity from the instrumentation to give the overall arrangement a sound that harkens back to the early days of Machine Head circa Burn My Eyes and The More Things Change…
No information was provided about the song’s lyrical theme in the press release announcing the premiere of the new song and video. In watching the song’s lyric video though, the theme comes across as a social commentary about the truths and lies that society tells itself. It notes in its own fashion that all humans lead themselves to lie to others for one reason or another. That is, as always, this critic’s own interpretation.
