PALLBEARER Share Music Video For New Single “Endless Place”

Pallbearer, indisputable masters of emotionally insightful and stirring heavy music, return with their most raw and heartfelt album to date, “Mind Burns Alive”, dropping on May 17, via Nuclear Blast Records.

The official music video for the album’s second single “Endless Place” can be seen below.

“Endless Place” features the band’s first-ever musical collaboration (a saxophone solo from Norman Williamson of Amasa Hines). The song encapsulates the thematic essence of the album, as described by vocalist-guitarist Brett Campbell“These are vignettes which tell the stories of people who deal with myriad sicknesses of the spirit. These are illnesses communicated by the world we live in, and the subjects are the symptoms of its disease.” 

The dreamlike scenario that enfolds in “Endless Place”, both lyrically and musically, is one focused on a sense of being lost, disjointed, and trapped by unease and confusion.

Album pre-orders, which include limited-edition vinyl, CD, and digital, are available HERE.

“These songs are a deeper exploration of dynamics and sonic color than anything we have done up to this point,” vocalist/guitarist Brett Campbell explains, shedding light on the band’s decision to strip everything back on the forthcoming nearly hour-long album. “I’m of the belief that true heaviness comes from emotional weight, and sometimes sheer bludgeoning isn’t the right approach to getting a feeling across.”

Five years in the making, with recording initially slated for 2020, and thwarted yet again in 2022, it was 2023 that saw the band members living locally to one another in Little Rock for the first time in nine years. As a group, they self-produced the album in their own, newly constructed studio (Idlewild Audio) and at Fellowship Hall Sound. Reflecting on this, bassist/vocalist Joseph D. Rowland remarked, “It’s ironic given that the album is largely centered around isolation, but it felt like it summoned us into being back together again in one town, after so long apart.”
