Sorrow Plagues is the brainchild of British musician, David Lovejoy and they have just announced their second album ‘Homecoming’ is going to be self-released on May 27th 2017. The new album sees them explore new territories beyond their usual black metal sound, introducing elements of post-rock and more contemporary influences, in what is set to be their most ambitious offering so far.
The project started in late August of 2014 with the release of ‘It Will Never End’, where Lovejoy composed, performed and produced the entirety of the music on the release. He has gone on to release a further two EPs, two singles and a full-length album.
Sorrow Plagues combines the aggression of Black Metal with the ethereal soundscapes of Shoegaze and Post-Rock-esque delivering an interesting and cathartic experience for listeners. Especially with the lyrics exploring many different aspects of the human experience, including death, loneliness and regret.
Lovejoy has found his some fellow talented musicians to complete his live line-up and will be showcasing Sorrow Plagues first ever live show in November 2017, supporting Fen, Aklash and Conform To Serve at the Green Door Store in Brighton, UK. More tour dates are currently being booked to support the release release of ‘Homecoming’, and the debut single, ‘Relinquish’.
