It is with the utmost appreciation that we’d like to recognize those who were kind enough to purchase, or even listen to “For a Black Tomorrow.” The reception has been beyond our imagination. The band has been entrenched in a rehearsal room in preparation for live shows, which, if luck would have it, will take place later this year. We do not have an approximate timetable on the matter. Updates will be posted on this very site. Until then…
At last, our first full-length, “For a Black Tomorrow,” is seeing the light of day. We are indebted to those who have supported us along the way, in particular, Season of Mist, our close friends and relatives, and those kind enough to listen to the band.
Season of Mist has uploaded the track “The Grace Of The Dark,” which can be streamed below.
The last song we composed for the For a Black Tomorrow album, “The Grace of the Dark” features one of our more melancholic riffs that is combined with outside instrumentation, i.e. keyboards, which marks a first for Deathwhite. We felt so strongly about the song upon its completion that we felt it had to be lead-off track on the album. And lyrically, it tells the story of someone who only finds solace in the darkest and quietest of places…
The beginning of the year will bring forth promotion for our first full-length, “For a Black Tomorrow.” We also plan on scheduling our first live performances to help support the album’s endeavors, not to mention the excellent work of our label, Season of Mist. More to come on all fronts…
We are very proud to release to you the first track “Dreaming the Inverse” from our new album For a Black Tomorrow.
Our first video foray, “Dreaming the Inverse” details a man’s inability to forgive and his resultant descent into madness after receiving similar treatment from his scorned significant other. While the song itself could be applied to a variety of situations, in this instance, we felt it was necessary to visualize the oftentimes complex dynamic between two people who have effectively wronged each other. We feel the video accomplishes this in more ways than one. Beyond that, we are indebted to director David Brodsky and his team, the video’s actors and everyone else who helped make this a reality.
In our estimation, “Dreaming the Inverse” was the proper choice for not only a video but as a first single because it encapsulates all of the key facets of Deathwhite. It became evident during the ‘For a Black Tomorrow’ songwriting process that this would be a standout from the album. We hope listeners will enjoy the song as much as we did while creating it.
Taken from the forthcoming new album ‘For A Black Tomorrow’.
For A Black Tomorrow releases Feb. 23, 2018 worldwide and can be pre-ordered from Season of Mist at smarturl.it/Deathwhite (US) and smarturl.it/DeathwhiteShop (EU)
Although “For a Black Tomorrow” was originally to be released on our own accord in March, the work Season of Mist is applying to the album far exceeds anything we ever could have done. Therefore, behind-the-scenes happenings persist, with several exciting developments in the pipeline, of which we will reveal in the coming weeks and months. We, of course, are eternally grateful to those who continue to support Deathwhite. More to come…
We have signed a deal with French independent label Season of Mist Records. The press release follows accordingly:
Season of Mist are proud to announce the signing of DEATHWHITE. The enigmatic bringers of darkness will release their debut album, ‘For a Black Tomorrow’ via Season of Mist.
The band comments: “We are incredibly honoured to join the Season of Mist roster. DEATHWHITE started in 2012 as a basic studio project with the aim of playing dark metal in the vein of some of our most beloved bands. To have one of metal’s leading independent labels take an interest in us is far beyond our expectations. We now turn our attention to the proper release of our first full-length, ‘For a Black Tomorrow’, and look forward to among other things, our first live performances, and a strong as well as enduring partnership with Season of Mist.”
Formed in 2012, DEATHWHITE were created in part to follow on the path first explored by dark metal torchbearers such as ANATHEMA, KATATONIA, MY DYING BRIDE, and PARADISE LOST.
The band’s ‘Ethereal’ EP (2014) successfully established a template of melodic, clean vocals alongside melancholic, but heavy riffing. Their debut created an early buzz within the metal underground that grew significantly with the following ‘Solitary Martyr’ EP (2015), which was hailed by critics as “thick with emotion” and “wonderfully engrossing.”
Backed by such praise, DEATHWHITE spent 2016 writing and recording their first full-length under the supervision of producer and engineer Shane Mayer. ‘For a Black Tomorrow’ was originally scheduled for release in March of 2017, but after signing to Season of Mist the release has now been slated for early 2018.
