Louisville duo, FOOL’S GHOST, have today premiered a video for their new track Shut Away. The video was created by Cloakroom’s Bobby Markos, and the track will be on all streaming platforms from Friday. Shut Away is taken from their upcoming album, Dark Woven Light, which will be released via Prosthetic Records on March 20.
Comprising of Nick Thieneman (Young Widows, Breather Resist) and Amber Thieneman (Liberation Prophecy, Sandpaper Dolls), FOOL’S GHOST are a band small in number but vast in scope. Dark Woven Light is their new year missive, evoking stark landscapes and barren vistas. The ten track album was recorded in 2018, in their hometown of Louisville, Kentucky with producer Kevin Ratterman (Emma Ruth Rundle, Jaye Jayle, Jim James) at the helm. Cinematic and atmospheric by nature, Dark Woven Light is heavy music distilled through a crystalline lense.
FOOL’S GHOST are challenging the very notion of what heaviness is within music – a gentle exploration of the darkest facets of our individual and collective psyches. In Dark Woven Light, FOOL’S GHOST have delivered the perfect winter record – a lullaby for ghosts, an elegy for the apocalypse.
FOOL’S GHOST previously released videos for Touch and In Between which can be viewed here and here respectively. The band will embark on a tour in support of Dark Woven Light this March, playing with Fotocrime. Full dates are below.
