To announce the news, the Boston outfit have shared their forthcoming album’s stellar lead single, ‘Sullenboy’. 

Have a listen to the emo-tinged banger below.

‘On Death Is Nothing To Us’ will follow 2021’s ‘Between the Richness’ and complete the thematic trilogy of Fiddlehead records that also includes their 2018 debut, ‘Springtime and Blind’.

Speaking of the group’s latest project, vocalist Pat Flynn has discussed some of the real-world emotional toil the record is rooted in, saying:

“I don’t want people to romanticize grief and depression, myself included.

“But I wanted to write about the way loss can perpetuate this feeling of sadness in your life.

“I didn’t intend to make some kind of thematic trilogy but there is this connection to the first two records, and this album sort of rounds out some of the stages of grief that weren’t addressed previously – especially this feeling of stickiness that a depressive attitude can have.”
