ASTARI NITE PRESENTS NEW SINGLE AND VIDEO “AS IF YOU WERE DEAD”
NEW EP DUE FEBRUARY 2020 VIA DANSE MACABRE RECORDS
Filling our hearts and minds with emotional resonance, Astari Nite is gearing up to deliver their latest single “As If You Were Dead”. The mesmerizing track is the first to be released from their forthcoming EP, due out February 2020.
Moving and thought-provoking, “As If You Were Dead” communicates the complexity of loss and death, merging the downbeat tempo, and sorrowful lyrics with a dissonant yet soaring melody. The mournful subject matter is enough to bring any listener to tears, but the track brims with hope and a forlorn optimism:
“Memories of you is better this way/To feel what was then when it was yesterday” sings lead singer Mychael.
“Knowing that you can never speak to someone ever again is the hardest part when dealing with death. Never hearing that person speak or seeing them smile in front of you again, sure makes for a gloomy day. Nevertheless, one can only mourn for so long. In time, happiness will come in waves yet again and the memories just might stay a bit longer.” – Mychael
The single, mastered by Jackknife Sounds owner and Actors frontman Jason Corbett, will be released on Danse Macabre Records.
In collaboration with artist Anastasia Gwyn Judd, the band has also released “As If You Were Dead” t-shirts that are exclusively available on Bandcamp. A free download will be sent for every purchase on May 24th, 2019 when the song goes live around the world!
“As If You Were Dead” will be released along with an emotive video, directed by Ileana Escalante & Louis Molden (Blind Beast).
