LISTEN TO THE EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE OF THE NEW SINGLE “HERS” FROM THE DARLING FIRE
After enduring crushing sorrow, loss, and personal grief, The Darling Fire returns with their sophomore release Distortions. It arrives September 16 via Iodine Recordings. The new material is abrasive, gloomy, and brooding. There’s also a more potent metallic influence.

“HERS is about the strangeness of vivid dreams, and how they can sometimes feel so real that the lines between reality and fiction are blurred. Sometimes you feel like you’re falling, only to be jolted back into your physical body on this side of the plane. I’ve had many experiences like this during my life, and I can still remember a few childhood dreams and nightmares in detail that have stuck with me all these years.
This is one of the earlier songs we wrote for DISTORTIONS, and for those that are familiar, it’s definitely going to sound heavier and more intense than the last album we released. Like a crazy dream—or a nightmare—we wanted this song to take the listener on a journey, with a non-traditional structure, twists, and turns, although it does have a theme that’s revisited through to the end. Jay Maas (Defeater, Bane, Title Fight) helped us achieve the layering we had in mind, and we were able to bring some unique touches into the mix for this one. This is one of my personal favorites on the album.”
