FEARING Release New Single, “I Was So Alive”, Announce New Album, 'Destroyer'


FEARING, a post-punk band from California, is gearing up to release their second album, titled "Destroyer," on September 29th, following their debut LP, "Shadow," which came out in 2020. With this new record, the core trio continues to evolve their sound, exploring sonic territories that strike a delicate balance between somber, austere, vigorous, and vibrant elements.

"Destroyer" presents a distinct and captivating theme of profound maritime desolation, evoking a sense of abyssal depths. The band showcases a more energetic side by adopting a stripped-down three-piece lineup and embracing a minimalistic sound. The album gracefully blurs the lines between dark and pop music, infusing it with a heightened sense of urgency compared to their previous releases.

The album opener, "I Was So Alive," (posted below) stands out with its dynamic and melodic progression, departing from the more familiar shoegaze repetitions that FEARING is known for. While some tracks on "Destroyer" bring back the subtle darkwave influence from the band's earlier work, the first single, with its multi-faceted, brooding yet glimmery qualities, sets the tone for what's to come. This single premieres today, building anticipation for the full album release.
