In anticipation of their forthcoming album When The End Began, metalcore maestros Silent Planet have just debuted their fourth new single titled “In Absence.”
Taking a different approach from their usual hard-hitting style, “In Absence” showcases a lighter and much more emotional side of Silent Planet many fans have never heard before.
When posting about the track, the band opened up about the song’s lyrical content saying, “As I get older, I’m more mystified by life and wonder if coincidence is all that random. And in this very moment, this song makes more sense than ever.”
“We’ve had family and friends develop memory disorders - Dementia, Alzheimer’s, etc. - and learned to love someone who no longer knew who we were,” they added. “If you’ve gone through that process, you know the unique sort of pain this can cause. So this is a love song for those folks and their families.”
As for the song style, the band said, “We decided to take a slightly different approach in the writing process - we took some risks - and this is what came out. Hopefully it can speak to some of y’all.”
