Loathe are a sedulous collective of five, formed in the UK‘s industrial and artistically acclaimed port-city of Liverpool. Their debut record, ‘The Cold Sun’, signifies a forceful and shrewd testimony. The quintet nail their colours to the mast with this resolute mission statement; an ode to the times we’re living in and the murky future that we all find ourselves faced with.
‘The Cold Sun’ is a concept record; a compelling 35 minute long meandering into the depths of a dark, post-apocalyptic tale. The record follows the adjacent timeline of two protagonists (A & B), who exist during a dystopian future, stricken by tragedy and the ever-looming apocalypse.
Loathe travelled to Glow In The Dark Studios in Atlanta, Georgia to record ‘The Cold Sun’ under the watchful eye of producer Matt McClellan (Underoath, The Devil Wears Prada, Being As An Ocean). “Glow In The Dark has produced some of our favourite records and it was humbling to be a part of its legacy.” states Bickerstaffe. “From the band’s inception we had planned to work with Matt McClellan, although it was only until after signing to SharpTone Records that we had the opportunity to make it happen. We felt like Matt‘s approach would aid us in defining our sound for the record. We experimented with our usual approach to writing during our time at Glow In The Dark, and we’re very proud to present this as the outcome.”
