Dooms Children has released the wistful new track Heavy Year and launched pre-orders for their upcoming, self-titled debut album, out October 20 on Dine Alone Records / Cooking Vinyl Australia. Dooms Children is the new psych-rock solo project from venerated post-hardcore artist Wade MacNeil (Alexisonfire, Gallows).
Dooms Children finds MacNeil on a different artistic path both in style and content with an honest and sincere offering that shines light on recent life experiences and revelations. “This is the most personal music I have ever released,” says MacNeil. “Dooms Children is about falling out of love, about addiction and lying awake at night wondering if you’ve made all the wrong choices.”
Heavy Year is a thoughtful and reflective song addressing grief and regret following a harrowing period. The melodic track features MacNeil’s lyrical guitar playing and passionate vocals, both of which convey the weight of his message. MacNeil says of the track, “This song is about not running away from suffering. It’s about feeling it, living it, and moving past it.”
Dooms Children is arguably the purest distillation of MacNeil’s artistry and identity to date, and frames a rather tumultuous and ultimately transcendent few years of his life. With Dooms Children, MacNeil puts forth a revealing and courageous set of songs that chronicle his life at its most vulnerable point before taking control and reemerging wiser with a new outlook and perspective.
