1 min read

In the ongoing campaign for their new album “The Wound” on Engineer Records, Runaway Records, Sell The Heart Records, and Sliptrick Records, The Distance, a post hardcore band hailing from the picteresque shores of Mallorca, Spain, has released a new video for their single “Flowers“.

Flowers” begins with an air of serene nostalgia, harking back to the emotional hardcore of the 1990s and the passionate screamo of the 2000s. This opening sequence, gentle yet captivating, is woven with narrative-driven melodies that gradually escalate, blending into a post-rock soundscape. Rather than erupting into a sonic deluge, the track transitions into an emotionally charged, rock-solid plateau, showcasing The Distance‘s nuanced approach to their music.

This latest offering marks a significant evolution from their debut album ‘Prologue,’ released in early 2022.

The Distance, formed in 2019, features Yamil Ghazi (vocals, guitar), Julián Gil (guitar), Óscar D. Martí (bass), and Alberto Abad (drums). The band’s journey represents a new chapter for its members, who bring a rich history from various rock and punk projects. Born from a desire to express their evolving emotions, they draw inspiration from the latest wave of hardcore bands that emerged in the 2010s.

Their music, a potent fusion of deep post-rock riffs and the brisk tempo of hardcore, is paired with candid, screamo-style lyrics that occasionally drift into spoken word. Yamil Ghazi shares that their songs are deeply personal, reflecting pivotal moments in his life while allowing listeners to connect with the lyrics on a personal level.

The new single was expertly recorded and mixed by Tomeu Perelló at DST Recording Studio, a close collaborator of the band, and was masterfully mastered by Tom Nunes at Atomic Disc. Fans of bands like Touché Amoré and Loma Prieta will find solace in The Distance‘s style. Yet, “Flowers” offers an experience that is uniquely theirs – a raw, emotional narrative that will get you hooked.


I knew we made mistakes
Even so you were there
Smoking in your car
Looking the trucks pass by
You gave me back that book
And then you said goodbye
I didn’t care back then
I was so full of shit
Time stopped for a while
In that parking lot
As you ran away from me

How have you been?
I think i’m still the same
And i still have that book
Never read it anyway
If you want it it’s yours
I saw you from afar
Driving to pick me up
So please take me home
Cause I’m way too drunk
And i lost balance
Too many years ago

As i put my hand on your knee
I look through the window and i see
All the flowers that are born from your scars
