Final Stair – Release Very Intimate Single “Headgames” About Anxiety And Depression


Single: Headgames
Released: 27th July 2022

Final Stair share very personal song “Headgames” about anxiety and depression


Final Stair release their new single „Headgames“ today which is accompanied by an impressive music video.

With this single the Berlin based three-piece gets in touch with their inner self, investigating the incredibly intimate and delicate subject of metal health.

The band comments: “Istvan, the band’s singer, fell into a severe life crisis a few years ago and suffered from extreme panic attacks and an intense anxiety disorder that took complete control of his body, soul and everyday life. He was guided only by the fear of fear. This vicious circle ended in alcohol and depression and in mind games that made him a helpless person. He developed into a small, helpless boy who could no longer cope with his life.
This song tells the story of this disease on the one hand, but also contains the strength to overcome it and to learn to live with it. With this song, the band wants to draw attention to the fact that there are many people among us who suffer from depression and similar illnesses. With “Headgames” they want to say: you are not alone!”

The music video for “Headgames” shows a confrontation with the own self.

Headgames follows from the previous single Back To Throne, a track that explores the fantastic world populated by legends and stories from the Middle Ages – historical reenactment is one of the band’s big passions.

Final Stair have already released six singles: Back To Throne, Dreamhunter, HopeIllusionistEnd Of Love and Morning Dew. Debut album Hope is set for release on 16th September 2022.

About Final Stair
Berlin is known for many things, though save for a few names like Tangerine Dream, Rammstein and Atari Teenage Riot, rock music hasn’t necessarily always been one of them. It’s something that German trio Final Stair are planning to change, who’ve found great inspiration in the wonderfully war-torn, visually imperfect and often hedonistic surroundings they’ve grown up around. Formed by twin brothers Istvan and Denes Vörös in 2012, with current drummer André Seidel joining in 2016, this is a band who want to celebrate the intoxicating light and darkness around them through thunderous groove and soaring chorus hooks…The band have honed their craft and built a loyal fanbase in Germany (helped by previous single “Over The Top” being used extensively on the Netflix show “Cable Girls”). The trio will be releasing their debut album, titled Hope, via their own Sonic Grit label later this year. The music was recorded by the members themselves in their own rehearsal facility, a place where they could dictate their own rate of progress and painstakingly boil down a broad list of influences into the core fundamentals that made them unique. With tracks like Dreamhunter (“a big fuck you to everyone who ignored us”), Never Felt Before (“an old song that represents our grunge roots”) and Morning Dew (“one of our biggest hooks”) touching on the anthemic greatness of Queens Of The Stone Age, Biffy Clyro and The Killers in ways that feel completely fresh and new, Hope will undoubtedly be remembered as one of the finest rock debuts of its year…


“Headgames” is released through Sonic Grit on the 27th July 2022:
