The deathcore unit mark the arrival of a strong entry awaited by many.
On March 24th, Ov Sulfur will release The Burden Ov Faith via Century Media, a culmination of the fast-rising acclaim that surrounds the band's bombastic live performances and the Oblivion (2021) EP. To match the heart-wrenching, harrowing nature of the album's direction, the band have tapped into the talents of MM Fabrications & Blaqk Rabbit for the album's visual identity, which extends into the profound video for new single Earthen. It's a moving effort that bridges the extreme with the vulnerable, rounding out one cathartic experience.
Frontman Ricky Hoover comments on the track:
"'Earthen' is about my nephew who died from cancer at 16. After failed bone-marrow transplants, he decided to stop and let it take its course. It's about witnessing that and being there, holding him when he died. That song is very emotional for me...I was actually crying in the studio tracking vocals. We needed the video to capture the sheer tragedy of that situation to really underscore how unfair and unjust it is for any 'god' to put a child through something as awful as cancer."
Guitarist/vocalist Chase Wilson adds:
"The guitar lead from this song is the first thing I wrote that ended up on the album, well over a year ago. The song came together quickly after that and has stayed very similar since. As such, it'll appeal to fans of the 'Oblivion' EP, as well as the newer stuff we've been putting out, with the most obvious growth being Ricky's emotional singing and Leviathvn's super tasteful drumming. We're all really proud of this one."
