Georgia’s DYING WHALE has issued a new single from their Nefarious Industries-bound Last Moments Of Misery album, releasing “The Cloud I Hold” through IDIOTEQ webzine.
Unifying elements of metal, sludge, and hardcore with ferociously raw emotional delivery, DYING WHALE‘s Last Moments Of Misery molds the listening experience and will leave you breathless. Thematically, the record revolves around the dark periods in our lives, and the idea of not having a place in this world or a home in the afterlife has fueled the storyline.
The band’s Matt Zagorski offers of the new single, “‘The Cloud I Hold’ relates to so many people I come in contact with every day. The feeling that you can’t speak up and tell the ones you love that you are barely holding on. All you hope for is them to tie you up and force you to tell them you don’t see your life worth living. It feels like your last chance of life. Expose me.”
Stream “The Cloud I Hold” via IDIOTEQ at THIS LOCATION.

DYING WHALE tracked Last Moments Of Misery at Earthsound Studios in the band’s hometown of Valdosta, Georgia in February 2015, their fourth time working with engineer/producer Lee Dyess (Mayday Parade, From First to Last, I Set My Friends On Fire) as they feel fully at home in his studio. Following a lineup shift, this is the first of the band’s recordings to feature bassist Matt Zagorski also handling vocals, which mesh with the explosive and multifaceted delivery of guitarist Josh Zorn. Drummer Eli Werth makes his debut with the band, adding an element of urgency to the music that wasn’t fully captured before. With additional vocal contributions from Rich Weinberger (Gatherers), Jeff Hill (Machinist!), Kelby Clark (Divorce Ring), Nannen Gatchell (Smiler), and Victor Skamiera (Fero Lux) spread throughout the twelve-song melee.
