As they prepare for their extensive European tour with Igorrr, French doom metal visionaries Hangman’s Chair reveal a previously unreleased gem in the form of new single »Spleenwise«. Clocking in at over six minutes, »Spleenwise« bears the trademark features of Hangman’s Chair, as it combines dark, brooding atmosphere with sombre melodies.

Hangman’s Chair stated about »Spleenwise«: “‘Laugh at everything, sad sex and poor decisions. Silence is addictive.’ »Spleenwise« is a neologism to express our state of mind towards everything that surrounds us: sit around, watch the world burn and appreciate the spleen.

Plus, this song is a link between the past and the future, a track written many moons ago that closes the »A Loner« chapter, as it is the last remaining song of the studio sessions.”
