Today Slothrust shared the next track from their upcoming album Parallel Timeline (September 10th via Dangerbird Records). The Next Curse was co-written by Donna Missal and features rocker Lzzy Hale of Halestorm.
Slothrust’s Leah Wellbaum says “The Next Curse” is a song about how even in a time when we see our planet on fire and flooding, we still don’t take the time we need to heal ourselves. these circumstances begin to mirror each other in a self-perpetuating cycle. It is my desire that humans as a species work toward less violence and more compassion for one another despite differences. I hope we can show this kindness to planet Earth as well and treat her like the magical, generous being she is.”
Slothrust runs the gamut of sonic expressions within their music and that’s part of what Hale loves about them; “Leah Wellbaum is a force of nature. It was an honor and a privilege to be a part of ‘The Next Curse’ and stand next to her fire.” Hale adds “Slothrust is one of my favorite bands, just when you think you know how to properly describe them, they go and toss you into a house of mirrors. Thank you so much for including me in this incredible piece of art.” Hale herself has new music coming August 18th with Halestorm’s release of Back From The Dead.
The new album Parallel Timeline, the band’s fifth, will be released September 10th via Dangerbird Records. As part of their fall tour with Manchester Orchestra, Slothrust will play the House of Blues in Boston on October 18th.
