“’Rite of Passage’ is both a reflection and a confessional,” explains bass player/songwriter Joseph Rowland. “The toll that loss has taken on my life often finds ways to remind me that I may never feel whole, and the song’s purpose is to express and embody that emptiness. It felt totally appropriate to wrap it in reimagined trappings of our earliest doom-leaning material.”
The band previously released a song and accompanying video for the album’s title track HERE as well as a black and white “Cinema Edition”.
Discussing the themes behind the album, singer/guitar player Brett Campbell, said: “Memory is a big aspect of the new record. Memory is a big aspect of the new record. The passage of time. How things change as perspective changes. Was the past truly the way that you remember it at all?”
