But Hangman’s Chair has more up their sleeves today: Having played a mesmerizing show at this year’s home edition of legendary Hellfest, the band releases a live video of »An Ode To Breakdown«, heralding the new album with all its monumental intensity.

The band states about »An Ode To Breakdown«:
“»An Ode To Breakdown« was clearly meant to be the first song of our new album »A Loner«. Our new direction, especially sound wise, is perfectly represented by this track.

The cover is also a new direction for us, in contrast of the lyrics, light was chosen. White and neons as the new outfit. We asked the photographer Christopher De Bethune and the illustrator Dehn Sora to tell us what Loneliness means to them. An old man, a bench and the world around. Waiting for nothing.”
