Alcest have premiered a video for the song “Protection.” The track is the first single taken from the group’s new album Spiritual Instinct, which is scheduled to arrive on October 25th via Nuclear Blast.
Frontman Neige commented:
“‘Protection’ is the first track I wrote for »Spiritual Instinct«. It’s probably one of our most heavy, spontaneous songs. It is about inner conflict, the tension between the spiritual and darker sides of a person, facing your own anguishes in order to embrace them and then fight them. Like the other tracks on the album, writing it was a very cathartic, healing process for me.”
