US heavy/doom metal act Mourn The Light share a music video for their latest single »I Bare The Scars«
American heavy/doom metal act Mourn The Light share a music video for their latest single »I Bare The Scars« taken from the upcoming full-length album, »Suffer, Then We’re Gone«, set to release on July 2nd, 2021 via Argonauta Records.
Guitarist Dwayne Eldredge on the new single »I Bare The Scars«:
“The song came together last-minute, before going into the studio to record an album we thought was already done. It speaks about regrets and long-lasting pain caused by dishonesty and the loss of those you care for because of it. It’s part of an album that takes you on an emotional journey with some uplifting highs and the most depressing lows.
The new video was shot on a band retreat to a cabin in Vermont in August 2020; it was a great experience as a band, as friends, and as amateur DIY music video makers.”

Mourn The Light was formed in early 2018 by Dwayne Eldredge, co-founder of The New England Stoner and Doom Festival. Driven by his passion for thunderous, traditional doom metal mixed with lofty progressive metal leanings, Dwayne was hell-bent on creating a band that could sonically push a message of hope in spite of despair.
The original lineup hit the studio quickly, releasing their debut EP »Weight Of The World« in June of that same year. The release was met with a fervor of underground metal accolades, propelling the band to tour the US and Canada, with featured festival appearances at Stoner Jam 19 (during SXSW) and the second New England Stoner and Doom Festival.
At this point, the band had to make some lineup changes. Nothing dramatic, just life. This drove the early mainstays, vocalist Andrew Stachelek and Dwayne, to deeply focus on putting together the absolute best band possible. And make no mistake, they achieved their goal. The current, uber-capable lineup features Kyle Knight on drums, Bill Herrick on bass, and Kieran Beaty on guitar, now allowing the full vision of Mourn The Light to be realized. And once again, the band was moving forward.
Early 2020 started off as an amazing time of writing and musical exploration, with the revamped quintet pushing themselves to write the best songs possible – songs that reflected their love of the heavy of old and the heavy of new. They were eager to return to the studio to record their first full length. Nine epic songs were written, and the band sequestered at Studio Wormwood with production wizard Dave Kaminsky at the helm.
