Alcest share second new single "Flamme Jumelle" and music video

alcest

French black metal/blackgaze duo Alcest have shared the second single, "Flamme Jumelle" from the band's upcoming new album, Les Chants de l'Aurore, out June 21st via Century Media Records

Pre-order Les Chants de l'Aurore here.

Neige shred the following:

Despite its more accessible vibe, this song is actually the most personal song of the album for me. "Flamme Jumelle", which means "Twin Flame", is about the idea of loss in general and the difficulty of coping with the absence of someone you deeply loved. It could be a family member, a friend, or a partner. On a more spiritual level, the title refers to the possibility that certain souls are connected in this life and beyond, and that separation is temporary and just a mortal concept.

 

 

 

The French black metal/blackgaze duo will bring along British post-harcore outfit Svalbard and Belgian sludge/post metal pair Doodseskader along as support for their upcoming Fall European tour scheduled to begin in late October.

One could say it is the 18th of April, thus 18/04. But that seems very European and gay. And unnecessary.
