Void Of Vision Release New Version Of ‘Year Of The Rat’ Feat. Jacob Charlton

Void Of Vision have teamed up with Jacob Charlton of Thornhill for a brand new version of their track, ‘Year Of The Rat’.

There’s still the heaviness on the track so don’t worry but now, there’s an added layer for ferosity with the Charlton’s vocals on the track.

Jack Bergin (Vocals) has comments:

“While I still feel like I’m not where I want to be mentally, it’s songs like this where I can truly see how much has really changed around me in such a short space of time. To gain a form of positivity from such an overwhelmingly negative track over the course of such an overwhelmingly negative year speaks volumes to the importance of heavy music and the reflection within it,” he says, adding:

“‘Year Of The Rat’ was written for those who have reached their expiry date, for the weak that have finally been weeded out. Watching an undeserving individual have a position of ‘power’ stripped from them has been a common theme throughout the year 2020, this song goes out to them.”

He also had this to say about collaborating with Jacob:

“About 5 years ago Jacob approached me after one of our hometown shows and asked if I wanted to do guest vocals on his new, up-and-coming band’s track. I’m pretty sure I said yeah, but forgot all about it until a good half a year later when our videographer Cian called and told me I had to come down to do guest vocals on this band that he was working with. The band in question ended up being Jacob and the rest of Thornhill tracking their debut EP, so I’m glad I listened to Cian for once.”

And Jacob adds:

“Jumping on this track was kind of like a little break for us both where we had the opportunity to build on something that had already been created,” he says. “Aside from that I was honestly super stoked to be a part of the project in general, VOV have always played a special part in Thornhill’s history so it was very cool to be included on a special part of their history”

Hyperdaze is available to order via UNFD.

Lastelle Drops New Track, ‘Departure’

Post-Hardcore up and coming badn Lastelle have dropped a brand new single, ‘Departure’, which comes off their upcoming EP, ‘Delicate’.

Freddie Whatmore (Bass) says:

“Another personal song, this song deals with the mental process of losing a loved one. The chorus line “In the end, aren’t we just chasing the time that we’ve spent our life wasting? All I hope is that you’re happy now” is about how the death of someone else can bring an overwhelming sense of your own mortality, and questions whether you’ll feel fulfilled when your life comes to end. There were a few different versions of the end of this song, but what we settled on probably ended up as the heaviest part in any of our songs!”

Check out the video for ‘Departure’ below.

The EP, ‘Delicate’ by the band is set to be released on February 26th 2021 via Year Of The Rat / Beth Shalom Records.

Pre-Orders are available via the label’s Webstore.
