German stoner/doom metal band Daevar unleash the first single »Leila« taken from their upcoming debut album »Delirious Rites«

Cologne, Germany based female fronted stoner/doom metal band Daevar unleash the first single »Leila« taken from their upcoming debut album, »Delirious Rites«, which will be released on January 27th, 2023 via The Lasting Dose Records.

Says the band: “We have used the last weeks intensively to record our first studio album with the support of mastermind Jan Oberg at Hidden Planet Studio. The result is a 5 track album that we will release in 2023 together with The Lasting Dose Records. Our first single »Leila« will be released October 28th and can be streamed on all major streaming platforms. The album announcement will follow soon.”

About »Leila«: “Our single »Leila« is about enforced disappearance in Iran. Leila represents everyone who is being killed and tortured by the regime for demanding their basic human rights like women wanting to show their hair and wear what they please or young people just simply wanting to live a free life. The juxtaposition of the plaintive lyrics and the energetic music is supposed to leave the listener with a melancholic yet empowered feeling.

We wrote the lyrics about a year ago inspired by an 70s Iranian psychedelic rock song from Kourosh Yaghmaei. However, the lyrics gained tragic relevance in the last two months with the current protest movement in Iran. We stand with the brave people of Iran protesting for their freedom.”
