New England Cinematic Rock collective Earthside has returned with new song, “We Who Lament,” ft. Keturah which is available now via Music Theories Recordings / Mascot Label Group and is accompanied by a visualizer video. They will also be joining Danish-Swedish quartet VOLA on their upcoming nine-date US and Canadian tour between the 12th and 22nd of November 2022.

At just under 9-minutes long, the song also features guest vocalist Keturah. Musically and lyrically, the song is “an awakening and a realization for the band”.

They say:

We’re still the idealistic and emotionally candid individuals from A Dream In Static, but no longer being able to see the world and humankind through a more hopeful lens—no longer being able to overlook the cracks and broken promises in the narratives we’ve been fed from an early age.

We immediately fell in love with the inimitable character of Keturah’s voice upon a progressive music fan messaging Jamie recommending her. We composed the “We Who Lament” vocal part for a very specific mode of expression, and we turned over innumerable stones before being gifted a link to her live show and having a visceral emotional reaction that she was the vocalist we’d been holding out for on this song if we could somehow connect with her.

Following the release of the video for “All We Knew And Ever Loved last summer, this is the second song from Earthside’s forthcoming album. “We Who Lament” was mastered by Ted Jensen (Mastodon, Gojira, Bring Me The Horizon) and mixed by Forrester Savell (Karnivool, Animals As Leaders).

This was the first song the band started writing for the new record, having been partially written alongside the A Dream In Static songs and then finished with the new album material. It serves as a “natural bridge” between the band’s two eras.
