FLOWERS FOR BODYSNATCHERS - New Album Out In March, Two Tracks Unveiled

Australian dark ambient act Flowers For Bodysnatchers is back with a versatile new album blending multiple genre elements. Entitled Alive With Scars will hit the stores on 5th March through Cryo Chamber. Alive With Scars is an album that explores the life long struggle of living with Multiple Sclerosis. Multiple Sclerosis is an autoimmune disease where the body's own immune system attacks and destroys healthy tissue, in the case of Multiple Sclerosis, the healthy tissue is myelin, the protein that insulates the nerves in the spinal cord, brain and optic nerve gradually destroying the myelin that coats the central nervous system. Your body slowly beings wasting from the inside out by the subversion of its own central nervous system. A body that with the passing of time will waste and wither to its own unique sonnet of pain and torment.
Flowers For Bodysnatchers mastermind Duncan Ritchie tells: "I personally have lived with Multiple Sclerosis for almost 10 years and, this album has been an on again, off again affair for almost as long. Did I even want to do this? Will people understand it? It has been a difficult subject to approach and express musically. Yet I found I had been subconsciously doing it all along. From the formidably depressing album Aokigahara (2015) to the melancholic spitefulness of Love Like Blood (2016). The narratives represented in these albums were backed by the way my Multiple Sclerosis affected me and the people around me. It's a long journey and Alive With Scars continues both the physical and emotional process of living life, trying to keep one step ahead of it and, trying to say sorry for the times I got things terribly wrong."
Two tracks from the album, "Vertigo" and "A Heart Less Darkened", are now available for streaming and you can hear both of them in the players below. Link
