Storm The Sky Have Just Released Their Best Song (So Far)
Letlive! At The Disco Storm The Sky have released their first legit single since 2015’s breakthrough debut, Permanence, and yep, it’s a fucking banger.
“Jaded Ghost” is also the second track from the Melbourne death-pop debonairs’ not to feature screamer Daniel “Breenie” Breen, who exited the band via… Snail mail? Aight. We’re not questioning it. It follows the accompanying “S.W.F.Y”, which was a pretty good tune – don’t get us wrong – but nowhere near as straight up massive as the new cut.
“‘Jaded Ghost’ is about something that I’ve been tearing myself apart over for almost two years and it felt incredibly good to finally get it into a song.” says frontman William Jarratt. “Just before flying to America to record Permanence, the person I was with completely destroyed me. I barely made it onto the flight because I went out and tried to forget who I was the night before. Even though I hated what she did, she was everything to me at the time and I put everything I had into that relationship and it was easy to hold onto it.
“So, naturally when I couldn’t handle being alone with my life and brain all over the place, I let her back in,” he continues. “I did it in the most selfish way possible, for comfort. I never let her forget what she did to me and it was borderline cruel and I couldn’t be more sorry for that. It was the best and worst three years of my life and I’ll never regret any of it because it matured me a lot. The experience has gotten me to the best mental state I think I’ve been in. Though the bad days are worse than they used to be, they’re being doused by the sheer amount of good days I’m lucky enough to enjoy.”
No word yet on whether “Jaded Ghost” is part of any upcoming long-form release from Storm The Sky, but EP, LP or nothing, we’ll be able to catch the quintet live this August with Pierce The Veil, Silverstein and Beartooth.
