HARAKIRI FOR THE SKY – unveil new single ‘And Oceans Between Us’

The release of HARAKIRI FOR THE SKY‘s new album “Mӕre” is getting closer and while a truly desolate year is drawing to a close, the Austrian pioneers of post black metal seize the moment to return with another gloomy work of art.
With ‘And Oceans Between Us’, they present a surprisingly catchy single off their upcoming fifth studio album – “Mӕre” will see the light of day on January 29th (February 19th in the US) and is about to unveil 84 minutes of melancholic post rock, crippling depression and black metal. 

Singer J.J. comments on the new song: “Sometimes you meet a person you believe to be your soulmate, a person that can cure all the pains of previous heartbreaks. You think: ‘This is the person that will save me from this cold and lonely world’, just when starting to realise after some times, this person became the ailment as well and her words became poison.”

Listen to ‘And Oceans Between Us’ here:
