Today, Half Me drop the video for the new single “Wraith.” Watch it here.
“‘Wraith’ is the repercussion of a traumatic episode,” the band says. “In a cry for solidarity, the isolation turns out to fuel the infectious progression of something that is vague and hard to pin down… but it exists. Every single thought aggravates a vicious downward spiral while nobody else is able to understand. In this state of being pushed away from everyone, ‘Wraith’ describes this entity that is growing and slowly becoming a part of you.”
The band previously shared the video for the single “Trauma Culture.” Watch it here.
Hailing from Hamburg, Germany, the metalcore five-piece was founded in October 2018 after the demise of the member’s local bands.
In two years time, Half Me have been able to make an impact in the music scene by self-producing music and videos to display their intensive and energetic demeanor. Debuting with four singles, it was their latest single “Exitwound“ (featuring Jack Bergin of VOID OF VISION) that gave the group a breakthrough and landed the band in the spotlight of KNOTFEST’s “Countdown to Oblivion.”
Musically, the band blends modern metal and hardcore with a splash of ’90s nu-metal. Pounding riffs and breakdowns are accompanied by brutal, yet sometimes elegant vocals that balance together to form the band’s sound.
Half Me’s debut album will land in 2022 — and will be worth the wait.
