Caskets have shared their first new music of 2022 and are continuing their ascent to the most ethereal of heights.
Caskets are picking up where last year’s debut album ‘Lost Souls’ left off with their new track.
It’s a beauty.
It’s called ‘Guiding Light’ and is a beautiful piece of deeply affecting post-hardcore emotion, with ethereal flickers and the sort of melodies that shoot up your spine like lightning.
It’s perfectly weighted and wonderfully bright and feels like the beginning of the next big step for the band as we look towards the future.
Vocalist Matt Flood had this to say about it:
“The song is about redemption of your soul. To ask for forgiveness from yourself and from those closest to you in your life. It’s about realising that you need a ‘guiding light’, a helping hand to navigate the way through your own personal journey of self doubt.
I’m sure most can relate to feeling like they need help being guided back to life, from whatever darkness they find themselves in. I struggle to ask for help. Lost in my own toxicity, waves of rage and believing that I wasn’t the problem, everyone else was. Only to finally come to terms with the fact I need help, a way back to life. But also that it needs to be led and commanded by my own hand first and foremost.
This is a story of redemption, realisation and belief in your own willingness.”
