Wytch Hazel is back with a new record Wytch Hazel IV: Sacrament due out June 2 and a brand new single "Angel Of Light." If you're looking for a very Thin Lizzy-esque jam, then you're going to love what Wytch Hazel has to offer.
"I've blown my own mind a bit," said vocalist/multiinstrumentalist Colin Hendra. "And even after all this painstaking work, I still feel like I've only scratched the surface of what Wytch Hazel could be doing musically. I wish I could have a month to work on one song, and go on a tangent a bit. I will in the future, it's going in the right direction. It's some of the most honest songwriting I've ever done, and the lyrics come from a darker place, I think.
"I'm getting older, that comes through in some lyrics: 'see my body breaking', 'I'm digging deeper', 'time's running out…' I struggle to see the positive a lot of the time, so the songs end up being negative, the subject matter coming from constant striving."
The video for "Angel Of Light" was directed by Wild Stag Studios (Angel Witch, Rick Wakeman). Wytch Hazel IV: Sacrament was recored with longtime producer Ed Turner (Purson), and pre-orders are available here.
