Atmospheric Louisville duo, FOOL’S GHOST have released the second single from their upcoming album, Dark Woven Light. In Between is streaming on all platforms now, and has an accompanying video – which can be seen below. Dark Woven Light is due to be released via Prosthetic Records on March 20; pre-orders are available now.

Of the track and video, the band comment:

“As we started to think about visuals for In Between, we discussed the obvious juxtaposition of dark and light, life and death, themes of water, liminality, etc. Drew Osborn did an amazing job capturing the essence of the song, bringing it to life in a visually interesting and mystical way.”

Comprising of Nick Thieneman (Young Widows, Breather Resist) and Amber Thieneman (Liberation Prophecy, Sandpaper Dolls), FOOL’S GHOST are a band small in number but vast in scope. Dark Woven Light is their new year missive, evoking stark landscapes and barren vistas. The ten track album was recorded in 2018, in their hometown of Louisville, Kentucky with producer Kevin Ratterman (Emma Ruth Rundle, Jaye Jayle, Jim James) at the helm. Cinematic and atmospheric by nature, Dark Woven Light is heavy music distilled through a crystalline lense.

FOOL’S GHOST are challenging the very notion of what heaviness is within music – a gentle exploration of the darkest facets of our individual and collective psyches. In Dark Woven Light, FOOL’S GHOST have delivered the perfect winter record – a lullaby for ghosts, an elegy for the apocalypse.

FOOL’S GHOST previously released a video for the track Touch, which can be viewed here. The band will embark on a tour in support of Dark Woven Light this March, playing with Fotocrime.
