Fiddlehead have released their third full-length, Death Is Nothing To Us, via Run For Cover Records, the album completes the thematic trilogy that began with Fiddlehead‘s previous two releases, resulting in a release that feels like a culmination of the band’s work so far. The album’s dozen tracks capture Fiddlehead‘s ability to seamlessly blend massive melodies with hardcore grit, and are sure to inspire singalongs, stage dives and introspection in equal measure.

On Death Is Nothing To Us, vocalist Pat Flynn delves deeper than ever into the nuances of loss and sadness, but his deeply vulnerable approach is exhilarating and often even joyous in its humanity. The album pushes further into the melodic and aggressive poles of their sound, all while Flynn tackles difficult existential themes with an open-heartedness that comes through in every word. The lyrics on Death Is Nothing To Us attempt to reject the allure of sorrow with a deftness and intensity that’s matched by Fiddlehead‘s music.

“I don’t want people to romanticize grief and depression, myself included, but I wanted to write about the way loss can perpetuate this feeling of sadness in your life. I didn’t intend to make some kind of thematic trilogy but there is this connection to the first two records, and this album sort of rounds out some of the stages of grief that weren’t addressed previously–especially this feeling of stickiness that a depressive attitude can have.” (Pat Flynn)
