Following the whirlwind success of their debut album Lost Souls last year, Caskets have returned with their first new music since its release in the form of new single ‘Guiding Light’.
Frontman Matt Flood comments: “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.”

Slam Dunk Festival will take place on June 3rd and 4th at Temple Newsam Leeds and Hatfield House respectively.
Leeds based newcomers Caskets have announced that their debut album ‘Lost Souls’ will be released on the 13th August through SharpTone Records. To celebrate the announcement the band have revealed a video for their breath-taking new single ‘Lost In Echoes’.
Frontman Matt Flood comments on the new single: “Lost in Echoes’ is about feeling uncomfortable in your own skin. Feeling worthless. It’s about how covering up how you feel can actually make you slip further and further into losing yourself. It’s a lesson about how ignoring your feelings can only make things worse.”
The news follows the release of the band’s previous single ‘Glass Heart’, their first in partnership with SharpTone Records, which was released back in December.
