“Forget Me marks the end of a very challenging chapter for Belle Haven, and the beginning of something new.” Belle Haven vocalist David De La Hoz affirms. After a massive tour with Welsh act Casey to round out their ‘You, Me And Everything In Between.’ album cycle, the band was burnt out, and questions of the future were raised. With time apart, and time to grow, guitarist Christopher Vernon asserts that distance did indeed make the heart grow fonder. “We’re still working on ourselves as people, on our writing ability, and our musicianship; but more importantly we’re constantly working on our friendship, our communication skills, and on our live performance, so as a whole, we are the best version of ourselves and Belle Haven that we can be. Nothing will ever be perfect, but you can only hope your current version of anything is the best it can be”
The four-piece returned to the stage with a free show as the Gasometer Hotel in Melbourne the other week, a show that was at capacity before the opening act began. That night the band shared with their most die-hard of fans a brand new song Forget Me, a song Belle Haven and Greyscale Records are proud to share with you today. With a similar theme introspection to that of his brother, David shares that the song is about working to better ourselves “The song is about self-sabotage. It can be one thing to be able to acknowledge that you’re a self-saboteur, but a whole other thing to try to change that.

“Don’t leave me by myself.”
As for what’s next, it is clear Belle Haven are back, but in what form? According to David, only time will tell. “The future is never set in stone. We intended on having new music out in 2018, but life loves to throw curve balls. 2018 was full of large curve balls. More like… curve boulders. Eventually we were thrown well off track. But instead of trying to get back on track, it now feels like we’ve built entirely new tracks instead. Because of that, the future for Belle Haven is very unclear as we’re not entirely sure where these new tracks lead. We do have a lot planned, some of which we’ll be able to share with everyone before too long. We just don’t want to put our socks on over our boots and instead focus on enjoying the moment. Releasing ‘Forget Me’ in particular is a moment we want to savour.”
