Frayle Pushes ‘Skin & Sorrow’ Release To End Of September: The Wait For Bewitching Doom Continues
Due to unfortunate production issues, the bewitching sounds of Frayle‘s latest record Skin & Sorrow have been delayed from the public until September 23rd. Produced by Brooklyn’s Aqualamb Records, the all encompassing laden-ritual metallic lullaby follows the likes of their 2020 debut album 1692. The ascendance of Gwyn Strang‘s reposeful sound defused by Sean Bilovecky‘s unbreakable projection had fans of Cleveland’s own Black Sabbath and Bjork lovechild building anticipation for this moment since its announcement.
To lessen the blow of disappointment, lead singer Gwyn Strang has announced a special offer to those who have preordered the project already. In a statement about the delay Strang wrote, “those of you who have preordered the record will receive a special gift. We can’t wait for you to hear this record!” Within the gothic care package is an amiably curated, 2023 moon phase calendar designed by the hands of Strang and Bilovecky –a token of appreciation for your patience.
In addition to the calendars, the band has decided to keep Skin & Sorrow‘s momentum high with a taste from the records brilliance. Throughout the month of July and early August the band will release a few tracks from the metal coated mystery. Currently sitting in our grasp with accompanying videos are tracks “Skin & Sorrow” and “Treacle & Revenge“– keeping their distressingly dark skied harmonies alive until its completed deliverance.
In a spirited elevation of events, Frayle‘s ethereal dismay will be available in two forms beyond our screens. Having recently signed to The Oracle Management has led the group to dig their claws onto stages across the globe. With first appearances starting at Post Fest this September, the band will trek through the UK and Europe for Damnation Festival and Germany’s Gloomaar Festival at the tail end of fall.
