French based doom metal visionaries HANGMAN’S CHAIR have finally released their latest album ‘A Loner’. The follow-up record to 2018’s ‘Banlieue Triste’ is the band’s sixth studio album and their first record on Germany based, worldwide leading metal label Nuclear Blast Records.

Inspired and adorned with true-to-life experiences, HANGMAN’S CHAIR shine again with their recognizable sound and passionate storytelling to deliver a worthy long-player to their fans after four years. The combination of dark and atmospheric elements together with emotional melodies and harmonies make HANGMAN’S CHAIR stand out as a truly promising prospect in the French metal scene and beyond. To celebrate the release day, their latest single Who Wants To Die Old comes along with a new music video.

Additionally, the band comments on the release of Who Wants To Die Old: “This is where it all started, depression. Depression comes back like an old friend, always. It crawls and slithers like Colonel Kurtz’snail, along the edge of a straight razor, our spine. And it survives. 
Who Wants To Die Old was written at the peak of a never-ending depressed state and the stage was set for the rest of the album.

Musically, it has been inspired by our main influences from the 90’s, Brooklyn’s Type O Negative & Life Of Agony. Once again, Oscar Bizarre is behind the camera, filmed in an abandoned sanitarium hidden in the woods near Paris, where concrete and nature become one.”

‘A Loner’ is available now in various formats.
