Khemmis have shared another track from their new album Deceiver, out November 19th via Nuclear Blast. “House Of Cadmus” is nearly 7 minutes long and you can watch the animation video for it below.
Vocalist/guitarist Phil Pendergast comments:
“”House of Cadmus’ represents the lowest emotional point on Deceiver. In it, we explore the seat of our deepest fears, the anchors that we drag behind ourselves for our entire lives. It is also maybe the most important song for me, personally, in our entire catalog. With it, I cut away the chains that have long held me captive and offer an invitation for everyone who hears it to do the same. We are all weighed down by some aspect of our lives: addiction, abuse, mental illness, fear, regret, and shame, to name a few. These traumas distort our views of ourselves, of each other, and of the world around us. But these are merely stories we tell ourselves, and no matter how all-encompassing they may feel, these stories cannot define us.”
Khemmis kicks off a US tour on December 11th in Brooklyn NY in support of Deceiver. Check out the dates here.
