Blackbriar Announces New Album “A Dark Euphony”, Shares New Song “Cicada”
Dutch alternative metal-gothic rock band Blackbriar, consisting of Zora Cock (vocals), René Boxem (drums), Bart Winters (guitar), Robin Koezen (guitar), Siebe Sol Sijpkens (bass) and Ruben Wijga (keyboard), has announced their sophomore album “A Dark Euphony” will be released on September 29, 2023 via Nuclear Blast Records.
The album is their first body of work in two years since the 2021 debut album “The Cause of Shipwreck” and comprises 11-track.
The band lead singer Zora Cock said of the album, “Some say that there is beauty in darkness – terrifying visitors, worlds far gone, gothic romances, bone-chilling legends, sin-eaters, burning hearts frozen in time, songs with a misleading voice, and a truthful whisper. This and so much more for you to discover on A Dark Euphony.”
- From the album, the band unveiled the third single called “Cicada” on June 22, 2023.
The track was written by René Boxem, Bart Winters, and Zora Cock. Produced by Joost van den Broek.
The accompanying music video was directed by Blackbriar.
Zora Cock said of the song, “It's said that cicadas were once humans. When the Muses came into the world, they enchanted some people into singing, they loved singing so much, they forgot to eat and sleep and died. The Muses rewarded them by turning them into cicadas who sing continuously. In this song, I ask my muse to turn me into a cicada after I'm gone.”
