Hexvessel have shared a new single titled “Old Tree” along with its video. The song is taken from the band’s upcoming album, All Tree, out on 15 February 2019.
Hexvessel’s singer/songwriter Mat McNerney says: “I wrote this song at a time of what should have been deep sadness, but as a way of finding solace in nature. We tend to think of life from such a short term perspective. Nature takes millions of years to develop some of the intricate life support systems we depend on to survive. I found my answers in the trees and what they tell me. As Hesse said, when we listen to trees, we learn the ‘ancient law of life’. This song ‘Old Tree’ is very much like the first song I ever wrote as HEXVESSEL and goes to the core of what our music is about. To quote Lord Byron, ‘I love not Man the less, but Nature more’.
The visuals were beautifully captured in the old growth rainforests of Vancouver Island by British Columbian filmmaker Mark Wyatt. Listen to “Old Tree” and watch the video below:
