Pallbearer – The Quicksand Of Existing

Pallbearer Forgotten Days


Pallbearer have just released the third video off of their upcoming album Forgotten Days. The band has been the darling of the critics and metal press for some time now. So if you’ve never heard of them, you’re either living under a rock, or your mind isn’t open to checking out newer artists.

That said, you can argue the term newer, as they released Sorrow And Extinction back in 2012. Forgotten Days is their fourth album, their first since 2017’s Heartless.


Here is some information that was sent to us about the forthcoming album Forgotten Days:

The album was produced by Randall Dunn (Sunn O))), Earth, Johan Johannson), and recorded at Sonic Ranch Studios in West Texas. Michael Lierly, drummer Mark Lierly’s brother, once again created the album’s artwork, crafting images that were roughly hewn yet heartbreaking in their expressive heft. The striking cover is the ideal foil to PALLBEARER’s thick musical and lyrical melancholia.

Pallbearer bassist/songwriter Joseph D. Rowland has the following to say about the track. It reflects the narrative themes behind the highly-anticipated release, self-described by the band as a reflection on family and loss.

As we strive to be, the forces of entropy perpetually pull us down into a state of being unmade. The body degrades; the mind and memories fray into unwoven threads, no longer connected to the rich fabric of the self. Choices made upon our separate and conjoined paths may find us engulfed in a mire of our unmaking. I wanted this song to face this reality with a grim determination.
