LACHLAN BRYAN & THE WILDES RETURN WITH ‘THE MOUNTAIN’ – Released 25th September

 

Local folk-meets-alt-country troubadour Lachlan Bryan and his band The Wildes will release their new album ‘THE MOUNTAIN’ on the 25th September through ABC Music/Universal.

Lead single ‘AFRAID OF THE LIGHT’ is a heart-wrenching track co-written with the acclaimed Kim Richey, who also lends her tender backings vocals to the lines ‘You know that I need you, through the darkness I will lead you. But I’ve always been afraid of the light…’It’s an emotionally-charged opener that sets the tone for Bryan’s most personal set of songs yet, crafted in the studio with The Wildes (Mat Duniam, Shaun Ryan) and, for the first time, Damian Cafarella.

Bryan says of the song, “I started writing Afraid Of The Light in a hotel room in Adelaide, and finished it in Kim Richey’s cabin in Tennessee. I think it’s a hopeful song – but there’s certainly an element of sadness. In the past I think people have perceived me as dwelling in the dark -but as is always the case, there is darkness and light all around – most of us dwell somewhere in the middle”.

Lachlan talks about the new record:

“I’ve grown a mountain-climber’s beard to release this record, and I think I need it. In short, there’s blood in these songs - blood between the lines; blood in the back-story. Calling this album 'The Mountain' makes sense – it’s a journey, but when it’s done you still have to get back down – or find another peak to climb. I genuinely hope that people find it as fulfilling a journey to listen to as it was to write and play and sing.”
