It’s there. It’s always there. The demon on your shoulder, the guilt in the pit of your stomach. It finds us all. And the only cure for guilt is ruthless, breathtaking honesty as displayed by Storm The Sky’s new album, Sin Will Find You, set for release on August 5 via UNFD.
The first sin of the collection comes via new single “Lilac”. One part of the Sin Will Find You video trilogy, “Lilac” is an intense and striking snapshot into a life spiralling out of control, in which the protagonist seeks to fix his problems the very same way he created them in a city consumed by drug culture.
Sin Will Find You is the new album from Melbourne based death-pop act Storm The Sky, a deeply emotive collection of songs that holds up a powdery mirror to the millennial culture that greedily seduces all comers. But rather moralising from on high, frontman William Jarratt has written from his own personal experience and composed a starkly honest collection of songs about love, cheating, drugs and friendship from the pages of his own diary.
And knowing oneself in 2016 is to face up to exactly what it is that motivates us, whether noble or beastly. To do so entirely without judgement is almost suicidally brave.
“Sin Will Find You is intentionally 100 percent based on my life,” states frontman William Jarratt. “I wanted to write the most open record I could, because I was sick of worrying about what people might think if they knew who I really am. I was holding back so as not to hurt anyone – so much so that I was lying about petty things just to stop people from judging me or disliking something that was inherently part of who I was. Writing it, I felt a weight lift off my shoulders.”
In August the Storm The Sky will take Sin Will Find You on the road for the very first time supporting Pierce The Veil, Beartooth and Silverstein.
