"'Nocturnal Hours' is a special track," explains Holcomb. "We began writing parts for it years ago, but never fully nailed the arrangement until the writing sessions for Void. It's meant to be a direct nod to early 2000s Opeth, namely the Blackwater Park record. Misha and I have worshipped that album for 20 years, and when the song started to take on qualities that vaguely resembled that sound, we said 'fuck it' and ran with it. Once our friend Jørgen Munkeby (Shining) laid down his phenomenal saxophone solo it instantly became an album favorite."

Haunted Shores will release their new record Void on March 11. Check the song out below alongside a special clip of Munkeby ripping through the solo.
