The six-song album will mark a new chapter for the band, in which they step away from the fictional and delve into life's harshest realities.
“We've always had a plan since the beginning. We wanted to do the [Grandomina] concept properly and then move away from it to focus on our real life experiences,” explains co-vocalist Kier Kemp. “Bruises comes from the heart. It’s allowed us to explore a whole new side of the band commenting on the darker side of human nature. It's still dark, but much more frank.”
TRACKLISTING: 1. “Feel Alive”2. “Stepping Stones”3. “Keep Smiling”4. “Regrets”5. “Like Bruises”6. “Aging Love”
