Emma Ruth Rundle and Thou have released their brand new powerful single, “The Valley”, which is taken from their collaborative album, May Our Chambers Be Full, out on October 30th via Sacred Bones.
Emma Ruth Rundle tells: “The Valley is a place. A landscape that lacks vistas and perspectives. An analogy for unrelenting, crushing mental illness, physical pain, addiction and the isolation that can arise as a result of these diseases. There is a choice one must make once initiated into The Valley’s fold; to press on living where no hope will ever show itself or to dissolve into its bleak grayness. On the journey, remains of those who came before us and succumbed are visible. Instead of hope, we turn to anger and defiance for fuel and with those we fortify ourselves. The ending doesn’t resolve, but successful escape from The Valley is unlikely.”
