The band have premiered the lead single off their upcoming full-length.
Premiering the single via NYLON, ‘Step Into The Darkness’ is Said The Whale‘s first foray into music since becoming a three-piece. The track is the first single off the band’s forthcoming album As Long As Your Eyes Are Wide, which is set for release March 31st via Hidden Pony Records.
Speaking to NYLON, frontman Ben Worcester describes how the single came to be:
“‘Step Into The Darkness’ was written after a devastating break-up with my girlfriend of six years. The song is me reaching out to comfort my love, reassuring her that she is safe and despite the immense sadness and feeling of loss, perhaps good things will come. We got back together shortly thereafter.”
