The Berlin post-hardcore trio Future Palace are back in full force.
Their new single ‘Paradise‘ manifests a profound musical development with a much more massive sound – for the first time shouts and down-tuned guitars expand the sonic and emotional repertoire of the band. Reminiscent of metalcore heavy weights such as While She Sleeps, their new sound delivers an unparalleled exciting force with engaging vocals and furious temper.
For me scream vocals are one of the most emotional ways to express misery and anger”, vocalist Maria states. “When I started to write the lyrics for ‘Paradise’, I was unsure whether I really want to realise them in this way or if I’m even able to. But eventually the decision to do it helped to achieve a completely different emotional depth.”
With this sonic evolution Future Palace produce a track that deals with the serious search for a proverbial paradise und the simultaneous fight with depression and sluggishness. The contrast that derives from the lyrics is expressed in the music video of the single, directed by Pavel Trebukhin who worked with bands such as Imminence, Landmvrks and Novelists FR.
Created was a visually highly impressive portrayal of the changing emotions represented in the song: the mournful atmosphere of a funeral service meets the literally staged paradise and makes clear how confusingly multidimensional the tasks of life can be. As well as the debut album »Escape«, ‘Paradise‘ was produced by Annisokay guitarist Christoph Wieczorek at his Studio Sawdust Recordings in Halle, Germany.
Future Palace are one of the most aspiring post-hardcore acts in Germany. They already worked with Arising Empire for their debut »Escape« and gained several million streams for their songs on the well known streaming platforms. In early 2022 they will join Annisokay on their European tour.
