New Album Curse of Autumn Out March 5

The moon, an autumnal atmosphere, fog in the woods, vampires, and a wicked storyteller – as an '80s horror fan, you'll get everything you desire by watching the cinematic new "As I Lie Awake" video by WITHERFALL.

The video was shot by the renowned director Zev Deans, who didn't just do spectacular videos for the likes of GHOST, BEHEMOTH, or >CHELSEA WOLFE — but also Denzel Curry and St. Vincent.

""As I Lie Awake" is the catchiest WITHERFALL song to date," the band says. "It was created with much arguing and loud, drunken chicanery. Early on, the band and producer Jon Schaffer agreed that this should be the lead single. Zev Deans, who had directed GHOST's "Dance Macabre", was enlisted for the job and the video for "As I Lie Awake" features a great Lost Boys-styled treatment. Thanks again to Duff's in Brooklyn. We didn't mean to spill blood and wine on your carpet..."

"When Joseph sent me the song, it immediately transported me to an era when both heavy metal and horror movies were all about sex, blood, and ultimately, a good time," says Deans. "Movies like The Lost Boys were in the movie theaters and long-format music videos like "Thriller" were on MTV."

"As I Lie Awake" is the second single from Curse of Autumn, the upcoming album from L.A.'s WITHERFALL. It is scheduled for a worldwide street date of March 5, 2021, with the U.S. vinyl available April 2. Pre-orders will be launched shortly.

What could possibly be a better time of the year to dive headfirst into dark, melodic metal? While the shadows of winter are creeping up upon us and the nights are getting longer, it's the perfect time for Curse of Autumn to unfold.

The album art is once again a hand-painted masterpiece by the legendary Kristian Wåhlin, the fourth painting in the WITHERFALL series.

Curse of Autumn was produced by Jon Schaffer (ICED EARTH, DEMONS & WIZARDS) for Ravencraft Productions, Joseph Michael (vocals, keyboards, also in SANCTUARY), and Jake Dreyer (guitar, also in ICED EARTH, DEMONS & WIZARDS). For the recording and mix, they teamed up with Jim Morris (SAVATAGE, ICED EARTH, KAMELOT, DEATH), while Tom Morris took over mastering duties. After most WITHERFALL songs were written with just an acoustic guitar, pen and paper, and copious amounts of red wine, it was the group effort of the full production team that made a difference. "Jon Schaffer and Jim Morris really brought a lot of energy to these sessions," Michael comments.
