It feels like the alternative
five-piece …or shall we say four-piece (all will be revealed) from Nottingham known as Amber Run have been teasing us for months for the release of their new track ‘Haze’ with subliminal messages covered all over their social media pages leading up to the release of the brand new hit.
Well finally ‘Haze’ is out! Get in! And it was worth the wait. Well, I say that – you can’t help but feel somewhat disappointed with the breaking news this evening that Amber Run will continue without the band’s drummer Felix Archer – a very talented drummer too. Felix has decided to leave the band in pursuit of pastures new – it almost feels like there purposefully was no sign of any drums in the band’s new song due to Archer’s departure.
Here is the statement that was published on Amber Run’s Facebook page in full:
We’re delighted to be able to show you Haze. This is the most recent song we’ve written for our second album, which we are currently recording. We felt like we had to show it to you guys as soon as possible, as it speaks volumes about what we’ve gone through as individuals and a collective over the past year.
Haze is about seeing the world through a veil of distrust and sadness. An apology for feeling that whatever you do, you’ll inevitably end up failing; that whoever you love will inevitably end up leaving, and that in whichever direction you walk, you’ll inevitably end up at the same place. It’s a plea for someone or something to come along and get you back on your feet.
As some of you may have guessed, we are now a four piece. Felix made the decision to leave Amber Run a couple of months ago for personal reasons. We all love him and remain best mates. We wish him all the success in his future projects and know he has everything going for him.
We want to thank you guys, our fans, for sticking with us and supporting us. We are so excited by what we’ve created in this second record so far – we have so much to say, and a new found confidence with which to say it.
This is the new era for us. We want you guys with us every step of the way.
All the best for the future Felix. Listen to ‘Haze’ on YouTube below:
