The Veils Announces New Album “…And Out of the Void Came Love”, Shares New Song “Undertow”
- New Zealand-based alt-rock band The Veils is back. The band announced their sixth studio album “…And Out of the Void Came Love”, which will be released on March 3, 2023.
It is their first album in seven years since the 2016 album “Total Depravity”.
The album is double LP and comprises 15-track, produced by Tom Healy.
From the album, the band unveiled the first single called “Undertow” on November 11, 2022.
It was written by Finn Andrews and produced by Tom Healy.
The band frontman Finn Andrews said of the song, “In the year before I started writing this album, I really didn't think I'd ever write another album again. I was done. I'd irreparably broken my wrist on stage. Then this song came shimmying down the drainpipe, and it really seemed to be encouraging me to carry on. It is, embarrassingly enough, a song about writing songs, written at what I admit was a pretty low ebb for me emotionally. Both my parents are writers, and though I am grateful to it for the life it continues to afford me, it is a complex genetic inheritance.”
- Finn Andrews shared on social media, “The first single Undertow is out now, with a nationwide tour of Aotearoa New Zealand also announced today. It is difficult to articulate quite what a strange 6 years it has been since The Veils last put out a record, but it's all in these songs. They are songs of loss, songs of anger and isolation, and songs of love. The album is dedicated to my young daughter because it was her that helped drag me out of all this uncertainty, and who made these songs finally make sense to me.”
