Post-hardcore rockers Acres have shared the new track and video ‘Be Alone’
, taken from the eagerly awaited debut album Lonely World
, which is set for release August 9th
via A Wolf At Your Door Records.
The release will be celebrated with a full UK and European headline tour this September.
The song boasts gigantic tidal waves of emotion, both breaking your heart and mending it as they crash over you. Its elegant and delicate verses slowly build into a soaring, breath-taking chorus, fully utilising vocalist Ben Lumber’s incredible range to emphasise the power of the music behind it.
The accompanying video was filmed during their UK/EU tour with Casey, featuring both on-stage footage and behind the scenes snippets that perfectly capture the emotion and energy that Acres so effortlessly exert.
‘Be Alone’ follows the release of ‘Talking In Your Sleep’ and the album’s title-track ‘Lonely World’, which secured airplay from Radio 1 and Kerrang Radio, as well as clocking up 100K+ streams on Spotify and over 250K views for their gripping video.
The new album is the result of the band’s hard work over the past two years where they have been honing their craft, perfecting their sound and enduring the grind of the music scene, since the release of their acclaimed 2017 EP In Sickness & Health. The EP led to support coming from the likes of Rock Sound, Kerrang and Metal Hammer and set them off on tours across the UK and Europe.
Acres have now formed a sound that balances the metal with the melodic, with a heavy dose of emotionally-charged intensity that’s compelling and addictive.
The story-telling mastery and vocal power of frontman Ben Lumber draws listeners to his words, while bandmates – sound-designer and guitarists Theo Sandberg and Alex Freeman and drummer Konnor Bracher-Walsh – provide a rock-solid musical foundation.
Penned in just six months, the upcoming album pays homage to the lives they see and experience around them. The striking artwork is a perfect reflection of the record as it explores further into real life struggles, emotions and subjects throughout, including anxiety and depression, providing a hard-hitting soundtrack to those arduous days and nights.
