PALLBEARER celebrate today’s release of »Forgotten Days« with the release of “The Making of Forgotten Days”, a deep dive into the making of the eight-song album.
“It’s been inspiring creatively, I think we’ve written so much more material over the past year than ever before,” bass player/songwriter Joseph D. Rowland explains in the first moments of the interview. “We were able to really let some of the lyrics develop earlier in the process than we have in the past. We were able to really focus in on ideas, develop riffs, with lyrical patterns in mind, themes in mind… this time there was so much more opportunity to tightly hone in on those things.”
»Forgotten Days« is the Little Rock-born band’s fourth full-length album, and like PALLBEARER’s previous releases, it’s been praised by critics and fans worldwide. The Randall Dunn (Sunn O))), Earth, Johan Johannson) produced album was recorded at Sonic Ranch Studios in West Texas. »Forgotten Days« is available in a number of limited edition vinyl variants with physical bundles available via both the Nuclear Blast and PALLBEARER webstores, as well as digitally and on CD/cassette.
