To celebrate the release of their ‘Arsonist’ EP, out today via Silent Cult Records, Sheffield post-hardcore band Havelocke have released a new music video for ‘100 Seconds’, which features on the EP, by Aaran Mckenzie Films (While She Sleeps).
Vocalist Owen Cousins says of the track, “‘100 Seconds’ is the last song we wrote for this EP, in fact it very nearly wasn’t finished in time for recording (we couldn’t get together to practice it through the lockdowns), but when we had most of it down we decided we couldn’t not have it on there. This song is wild to be perfectly honest, there’s so much going on. We really wanted to add a little bit of drama into this release and ‘100 Seconds’ has definitely got the drama.”
He adds, “The Doomsday Clock is currently at 100 Seconds to midnight, we’ve never been closer to the end of the world. 100 Seconds is not only about watching this unfold in real time but also playing a part in the show. It’s genuinely crazy to see us spiral towards the end, doing next to nothing about Climate Change, electing leaders who don’t give a sh*t and would literally burn the earth to the ground for a big pay cheque. As the doomsdayers say, the end is nigh.”
Havelocke’s ‘Arsonist’ EP comprises five tracks painted with emo, post hardcore, and all things horror, ready to twang at emotional heartstrings whilst providing those all-too-necessary hooks to scream along to in your bedroom.
“I don’t think we ever knew hard work until we started work on ‘Arsonist’, and that hard work has really paid off. We love every second of this record and we can’t wait for the world to finally hear it. Thank you to everyone that has helped us bring this vision to life, you keep the fire burning in our hearts,” say the band.
