Hungarian punk rockers The Hellfreaks are about to unleash their fifth album, ‘Pitch Black Sunset,’ on April 14 via Napalm Records. The band just released a new single from the album, ‘Weeping Willow,’ showcasing versatility and talent as they lean towards modern electronic metal. The song follows previously released tracks ‘Chaos,’ ‘Hit Me Where It Hurts,’ and ‘Old Tomorrows.’
The dark and atmospheric track surprises listeners with Zsuzsa “Shakey Sue” Radnóti‘s with a mix of mix of delicate clean vocals and aggressive, core-breaking screams towards the end. The accompanying video is a cinematic masterpiece that captures the essence of the song with symbolism and imagery.
About the song, The Hellfreaks share: “Do you ever feel like you’re in the middle of the ocean, surrounded by waves, and even though you know how to swim, you still can’t find the shore? Do you know how it feels being haunted by your own mind or when your memories feel more alive than yourself? ‘Weeping Willow’ is a raw and brutally honest portrayal of the battle with our inner demons. This song reveals the darkest and most vulnerable side of the album we wanted to reveal it with the most cinematic video we’ve ever shot by using symbolism and imagery, that truly captures the essence of the song. We wanted our fans to know that they are not alone in their struggles. Mental health is a battle that many people face, including us, and ‘Weeping Willow’ is a reminder that for some of us it is normal to feel overwhelmed and to ask for help. We believe it is an important release that deserves to be heard, and we are proud to share it with our families, fans, and supporters. Stay strong, and remember, you are not alone!”
