Vocalist and guitarist Phil Pendergast on the new single: “»House Of Cadmus« represents the lowest emotional point on »Deceiver«. In it, we explore the seat of our deepest fears, the anchors that we drag behind ourselves for our entire lives. It is also maybe the most important song for me, personally, in our entire catalog. With it, I cut away the chains that have long held me captive and offer an invitation for everyone who hears it to do the same.
We are all weighed down by some aspect of our lives: addiction, abuse, mental illness, fear, regret, and shame, to name a few. These traumas distort our views of ourselves, of each other, and of the world around us. But these are merely stories we tell ourselves, and no matter how all-encompassing they may feel, these stories cannot define us.”
In other news, Khemmis announce a string of live performances this winter in support of their upcoming album »Deceiver«, out November 19th via Nuclear Blast Records.
Guitarist/vocalist Ben Hutcherson says: “It has been far too long since we have seen all of your faces in the crowd, and we will be playing brand new songs and favorites from our entire catalog to celebrate the return of live shows. While the situation surrounding touring remains precarious, we will be taking every precaution to make sure that these shows are safe for everyone. Grab your tickets, practice your air guitar licks, and we will see you hellraisers out on the road soon!”
Tickets will be on sale from Friday, October 15th at khemmisdoom.com/live
