SORROW PLAGUES - Announce Release Of Second Album

UK based atmospheric post/black metal band Sorrow Plagues announce second album, Homecoming, to be released on 27th May. Sorrow Plagues is the brainchild of British musician David Lovejoy, who started this project in late August of 2014 with the release of It Will Never End, where Lovejoy composed, performed and produced the entirety of the music on the release. With this project, Lovejoy has since gone on to release a further two EPs, two singles and a full-length album. The new album, Homecoming, ventures into new territory with added elements of post-rock, and even including some contemporary influences, whilst still maintaining the atmospheric black metal sounds that Sorrow Plagues is known for. This is certainly David Lovejoy's most ambitious effort so far.
Sorrow Plagues combines the aggression of black metal with the ethereal soundscapes of shoegaze and post-rock-esque climaxes to deliver a cathartic experience. Listeners have described a wide spectrum of experiences delivered by the music with some stating that it calms the soul right down, to saying that this music is strongly recommended if you like a sombre atmosphere. This is especially the case when the lyrics explore many different aspects of the human experience, including death, loneliness and regret. Then finding strength and resolution through these difficult situations.
Lovejoy has recently gathered some talented and like-minded musicians to fully showcase Sorrow Plagues in a live environment, with their first gig being announced to support Fen, Aklash and Conform To Serve at the Green Door Store in Brighton this November. A string of dates are currently being booked to support the release of Homecoming, and the debut single, "Relinquish". Homecoming is available for pre-orders at this location. Sorrow Plagues is a must for fans of Alcest, Deafheaven, Woods Of Desolation and similar. Link
