The Veils are back with new music today. On Thursday, the Finn Andrews-led project shared a new song called "Undertow," a haunting, five-minute track which comes at the start of a new chapter, a new double album ...And Out Of The Void Came Love, which follows 2016's Total Depravity.
"It is difficult to articulate quite what a strange six years it has been since The Veils last put out a record, but it's all in these songs," said Andrews today on Instagram. "They are songs of loss, songs of anger and isolation, and songs of love. The album is dedicated to my young daughter because it was her that helped drag me out of all this uncertainty, and who made these songs finally make sense to me."
For Andrews, those "strange six years" included the aftermath of breaking his wrist while playing the piano on stage.
“It sounds wild and Jerry Lee Lewis-esque, but it was an absolute fucking nightmare,” says Andrews. He ultimately finished the rest of the tour, but when he got it examined much later on, he learned: “The scaphoid bone in my wrist had died, which I didn’t know was possible."
The new song, and the upcoming album, are inspired by the following years of uncertainty.
