Following on from the release of their brilliant 2020 debut LP 'West Of Eden', HMLTD have now announced their plans for a new studio album, arriving in the coming months.
The new full-length 'The Worm' is said to be "set in a disorienting anachronistic version of Medieval England – as steeped in dystopian sci-fi fantasy as it is folklore and Old English mythology", is being previewed by the new lead single 'Wyrmlands', and is set to be released on the 7th April via Lucky Number.
Speaking about the new offering, frontman Henry Spychalski said, “We’re told to believe that anxiety and depression are purely material and biological – like a parasitic worm that can be removed with the right treatment. I think that really these conditions reflect the world that surrounds us - like colonies that a far bigger Worm has made in each of us - the psychological havoc wreaked by our inescapable capitalist reality and the looming apocalypse it has created."
