“’In My Skin’ is a huge one on the album for me, I’ve never liked what I look like, I’ve looked in the mirror a million times and hated myself, so I decided that this year, 2019, was the year I did something about it,” Jacob says. “After UNIFY, I got off stage and saw the pictures and I absolutely hated how I looked, so after that I cut my hair off and have since lost 15kgs. I’m still not where I want to be, but I’m going hard enough at it that I simply can’t hate myself because I’m on the journey.
“While this song is about me and my body, it can be for everyone dealing with something they’re not happy with. I’ve learnt that you can be happier just for doing something about it, rather than necessarily getting to the outcome.”
Since emerging in 2016, Thornhill have made a playground of the Australian heavy sphere, earmarking themselves as one of the country’s most refreshing and unrelenting emerging acts. Having stretched their touring muscles alongside the likes of Northlane, Architects, Parkway Drive, In Hearts Wake and Polaris and impressed with releases including their 2018 EP Butterfly and single ‘Coven‘, the clever and colourful The Dark Pool promises to be a breakout for Thornhill.
The band will celebrate The Dark Pool with a string of headline tour dates throughout November, with tickets available HERE. They’ll also headline the debut Misery Emo Boat Party, before joining US metalcore giants Wage War on their European run in January.
The Dark Pool is out in full this Friday, October 25 via UNFD.
