Cover shot – BLOOM
Off the back of their recent signing to Pure Noise Records, Sydney melodic hardcore outfit Bloom share news of their anticipated debut album, ‘Maybe In Another Life’, out Friday February 16 via Pure Noise & Greyscale Records. The band share the album title track today as they gear up to play Good Things Festival in December.
Told as a story in ten parts, Bloom’s forthcoming album examines longing, self-indulgence, fantasy, manipulation and despair through the eyes of a character that is constantly challenged by their reality. “Maybe in Another Life contains our heaviest moments and most memorable choruses to date, and brandishes the full range of the sound we have been crafting since we began as a group,” tells vocalist Jono Hawkey.
“Since recording in early 2022, we have been hyper focussed on every element of this release. From visual identity to colour pallets, we have spent countless hours composing a complete body of work that we are extremely proud of.”
Joining forces with long time collaborator Christopher Vernon (Better Half, Belle Haven), new single Maybe In Another Life follows September single Bound To Your Whispers,which explored anxiety and the internal struggle between the voice of reason and the seeds of doubt. Maybe In Another Life touches on the protagonists methods of distracting through fantasy with lyrics that contrast the experience of a sordid existence and the indulgence of what could have been.
Celebrating a mammoth couple of months so far, Bloom will play Good Things Festival this December, kicking off December 1, and will join Sheffield metalcore monsters While She Sleeps as main support on on their surrounding headline dates. Tickets available now via Destroy All Lines.
Bloom’s latest signing to Pure Noise Records sees the band become the second Australian band to join the fold, finding themselves in the company of The Amity Affliction, Counterparts, Knocked Loose and more. Pure Noise partner up with Greyscale Records who have been with Bloom since 2020.
