New Album From Down I Go
Reformed three-piece Down I Go is set for release of brand new long player ‘You’re Lucky God That I Cannot Reach You’ via Holy Roar Records.
Having made the decision to split up in 2011, a request for the band to reform was seized upon, which saw the London-based trio head out to Iceland to record the new album. The actual request came from long-time admirer of Down I Go, Halldór Heiðar Bjarnason, who owns fljótstunga travel farm, and it was his passion for this band that saw Down I Go get to work on their new album at his workplace.
The album was written within nine laborious days, with the lyrical content inspired by a book of Icelandic legends and folklore that was given to the band during a brief respite in recording one evening.
In addition to the new surrounds and cultural differences helping to inspire the new record, Down I Go added full brass arrangements to accompany their experimental hardcore sound, which was a first for the band.
Expect to see ‘You’re Lucky God That I Cannot Reach You’ 23rd October 2015 on LP/DL via Holy Roar Records.
