Austrian post-black metal band Harakiri For The Sky has unveiled a new song called “You Are The Scars” today at Billboard.com. The 10+ minute, epic metal-gaze masterpiece is the latest offering from the band’s highly-anticipated 4th studio album, Arson, which will debut on February, 16th via AOP Records with distribution from Plastichead Distribution (Europe/North America/World) and Edel (Germany/Austria/Switzerland).
“This song is like a retrospective on broken relationships and the void that stays when people leave. To me it’s not the saying good-bye which is the greatest burden, it’s the never-ending silence, the rejection and the uncertainty. This song tributes the pain that’s left when beloved people disappear completely as if they’d have never crossed way.” – J.J. (vocals)
The lyric video for “You Are The Scars” was directed, filmed and edited by Andreas J. Borsodi with calligraphy and creative consulting by Albert Hupeka.
Arson is currently available for pre-order, and is available as a Deluxe LP on 4 different, limited edition vinyl colorways. Purchase now before they sell out.
