Dooms Children has released the wistful new track “Heavy Year”, off of the upcoming self-titled debut album, out October 20th on Dine Alone Records. Dooms Children is the new psych-rock solo project from venerated post-hardcore artist Wade MacNeil (Alexisonfire, Gallows).
Dooms Children finds MacNeil on a different artistic path both in style and content with an honest and sincere offering that shines light on recent life experiences and revelations. “This is the most personal music I have ever released,” says MacNeil. “Dooms Children is about falling out of love, about addiction and lying awake at night wondering if you’ve made all the wrong choices.”
“Heavy Year” is a thoughtful and reflective song addressing grief and regret following a harrowing period. The melodic track features MacNeil’s lyrical guitar playing and passionate vocals, both of which convey the weight of his message. MacNeil says of the track, “This song is about not running away from suffering. It’s about feeling it, living it and moving past it.” Listen to “Heavy Year” HERE.
