Check out the music video here and get the song now on iTunes and Spotify. With the release of the new single, the band become the first heavy British act to sign to Hopeless Records in the label’s 25 year history.

Lotus Eater stated on their signing:

“This is the sound of despair, the sound of five broken people, the sound of what happens when you take all hope away. This is not a fucking game to us: we are here to take over. This is gloom.”

Hailing from the streets of Glasgow, Lotus Eater formed in 2016 after parting various projects to create a gloom force to be reckoned with. The quintet combine remorseless, down-tuned groove and claustrophobic atmosphere to utterly traumatizing effect. In just two years of forming, the band has already dropped a successful debut self-titled EP (2017) that has won them legions of fans. The band has also gone on to tour with the likes of Bad Omens, Oceans Ate Alaska, Loathe, Heart Of A Coward, Traitors and Secrets. They are only just getting started.
