From Austin, Texas. Here’s Leopold and his Fiction…
The band just released brand new single I’M CAVING IN. A twisted, mid-tempo blues rock cracker fueled with heated firework guitars, pained vocals and a chorus that sticks instantly.
I just love the saddening swagger of this imposing heart & soul stroke. Amplified moodiness.
Frontman Daniel Leopold told Guitar World the story behind the new song: “It was written at a detrimental time of my life when I wasn’t sure I would continue on this path that I’ve worked so hard to be on or if I could even go on living. I know I can look back and identify with the person I was when I wrote it as I feel all people come to such crossroads again and again. Originally it was penned as a country song. But soon after writing it I figured out what I needed to be doing with my purpose in life and a direction for Leopold’s sound. It was through immense pain and what seemed like burden that forced me to simplify and dig in to where I am from and who I am.”
Here’s the striking score…
And if you can’t get enough of the blues, here’s the accompanying video with the band in a dreamlike cathedral, coming in and out of focus with psychedelic swirls and colors, mirroring the interior drama of the lyrical content. Hallelujah!….
New album DARLING DESTROYER will be out January 20th.
