In what is shaping up to be a strong second half of the year for album releases, September is looking stacked and today we get another strong contender for the throne, that being Final Gasp's debut album, Mourning Moon. Arriving on September 22nd via their new label Relapse Records, Final Gasp expand on their touch on yesteryear with a brilliant blend of goth laden metal and rock, the likes of which soars high on the lead single/title track. It comes visualized with a cinematic piece shot in the North Shore of Massachusetts, directed by Caleb Gowett.

Frontman Jake Murphy comments on the album:

“The whole record has to do with loss. The title comes from that anxious feeling you have when you go to bed and you’re thinking about everything all at once. You’re regretting decisions you’ve made—or didn’t make—and you’re up all night thinking about it.”

Regarding the video, Murphy adds:

“Dumah and Azrael have been banished from Heaven. Azrael on the Earth realm, and Dumah below. Azrael must trick the mourning Groom into helping him summon Dumah. But first Dumah will need an earthly body. The Groom’s recently deceased Bride will do just fine. Azrael and the Groom complete the summoning ritual and bring Dumah to the Earth realm. Reunited again, the Angels of Death light the flames of war and begin their reign over Earth. Destroying humanity one soul at a time.”
