Texas band The Well have released “This is How the World Ends,” another glimpse of their forthcoming record, Death and Consolation.
The track opens with meaty, fuzzed-out licks—and the hooting of what sounds like a monkey. Vocalist-guitarist Ian Graham enters to paint a dystopian picture: “This is how the world is, drowning now in flames / This is how the world is, nightmare of the sane,” he intones on the chorus.
“This one is a little more personal,” Graham said in a statement. “2018 was a strange, dark year. A lot of change going on in my life, there was a lot of depression and coming out of it over the last year. I wanted to call this [album] Death and Consolation, because in life that’s a constant.”
Their new album, which also features “Sabbah,” is out April 26 on RidingEasy Records. Check out “This is How the World Ends” here:
