Formed in New Orleans in 2011, Cane Hill made a bold statement on nu-metal/metalcore scene with their debut studio album Smile, released in July 2016. Now, just a year later, they are back with in-your-face single ‘Too Far Gone’ , accompanied by a music video. Be sure to check out the song and clip below.
The song saw its premiere on Dan P. Carter’s Radio One Rock Show, where the band also talked about the inspiration for the track and what makes it so aggressive and uncompromising. Elijah Witt and co. earlier said that their debut album influences were Slipknot, Pantera, Korn and Static-X. However, with the new single the band’s music direction definitely shows heavier influences, backed by personal dark experience. Turns out, the single was inspired by the musicians’ close acquaintance with LSD!
“This song is about our short and dangerously intense romance with LSD. We went down a rabbit hole, and I’m not sure how we came back. But Cane Hill’s here—bigger and better,” the group says. “This is in your face Cane Hill. The real Cane Hill. No makeup or gimmicks — just musicians playing aggressive ass music that’s meant to stick in your head and you won’t want to get it out.”
Does it mean Cane Hill’s new album is just around the corner? It certainly looks like that. But album release details are still to be announced. You probably wonder if the mood of the whole new record will be as metalcore and aggressive as ‘Too Far Gone’. Let’s wait a bit and see. By all means, Cane Hill wouldn’t be Cane Hill if their music and videos didn’t spark controversy among critics and fans.
The band are touring with Superjoint and DevilDriver in the US. Despite the band being young, Cane Hill have already got awesome tours in their pocket: from Bullet For My Valentine to Asking Alexandria to Atreyu.
