With a collaborative album on the way, Thou and Emma Ruth Rundle have shared the latest peek into what to expect with a new song called ‘The Valley’.
Rundle had this to say of the track.
“‘The Valley’ is a place. A landscape that lacks vistas and perspectives. An analogy for unrelenting, crushing mental illness, physical pain, addiction and the isolation that can arise as a result of these diseases. There is a choice one must make once initiated into ‘The Valley”s fold; to press on living where no hope will ever show itself or to dissolve into its bleak grayness. On the journey, remains of those who came before us and succumbed are visible. Instead of hope, we turn to anger and defiance for fuel and with those we fortify ourselves. The ending doesn’t resolve, but successful escape from ‘The Valley’ is unlikely.”
You can stream and listen to ‘The Valley’ below.
Their collaborative album, ‘May Our Chambers Be Full’, is set for release on October 30th 2020 via Sacred Bones Records.
