CASKETS celebrate today’s release of new album, ‘Reflections’, with music video for ‘In The Silence’

New album ‘Reflections’ is out today on SharpTone

Yorkshire melodic metallers, Caskets, who have today released their new album, ‘Reflections’, through SharpTone Records, have released a music video for new single, ‘In The Silence’.

Speaking of the track, frontman Matt Flood says, “’In The Silence relates to forms of addiction, the feeling that there’s no way out of a never ending cycle, finding that next ‘hit’ and then hating yourself for it.”

“You see your dreams fly away before your very eyes,” he continues, “whilst knowing it’s completely your fault that it has come to this. But, there is always a chance of redemption, you can overcome the evils of substance abuse. You can resolve your hate and let go of the things that are holding you back and plunging you into these scenarios. You are not alone in this. I myself have fallen into this hole over and over again. I have been in that silence and I have overcome many of my demons. It starts with you and your will to want to climb out.”

There’s an art to looking back. For Caskets, it could have been easy to plough forwards regardless, riding the wave of success from their breakthrough debut ‘Lost Souls’ (over 100 million streams to date), that opened tours up across the United States and mainland Europe, and secured appearances at landmark festivals Download and Slam Dunk. But having swapped the bedrooms that fostered album number one for countless hours on the road, reflecting on that journey and the decisions that led them down certain paths quickly became unavoidable.

If ‘Lost Souls’ was primarily driven by vocalist Matt Flood’s personal experiences, ‘Reflections’ delivers a wider picture of Caskets as a whole, borne out of the usual interpersonal differences that all bands face at least once in their career. For some it marks the end, but for others it fosters a collaborative environment that pushes the music well beyond what has come before.

The result reflects each individual member of Caskets, with Matt joined by guitarists Benji Wilson and Craig Robinson, bassist Chris McIntosh, and drummer James Lazenby. The record’s more upbeat moments carry impactful melodies, upping the ante from ‘Lost Souls’ with considered force, while the powerful ambient moments play out with real finesse.

In a step away from the singular retellings of ‘Lost Souls’, the Dan Weller (Bury Tomorrow, Enter Shikari, Holding Absence) produced ‘Reflections’ is a series of individual lessons,  looking back at a specific moment in one of the band member’s lives; a thought, feeling or events, and how that moment shaped the present.
