Frontman Sam Dishington comments on behalf of DÉPARTE: “Our new track ‘Vessel’ is a reaction to deeply entrenched feelings of isolation and futility. It deals with the despair of being stranded in that place, that void, and even still finding peace, stillness, and victory, drawing you out into the light. From a musical standpoint, ‘Vessel’ is quite broad, touching on many of the elements you can expect to hear throughout the rest of the album. Dark, crushing and dissonant, yet in the same breath powerful and emotive.”

The Australian post-black metal extremists have previously revealed the cover art of ‘Failure, Subside’, which is based on a photograph by Alistair Davis of Zac Blain that has been edited by Sam Dishington and Michael Rankine. Artwork and track-list can be viewed below.

On previous news, DÉPARTE have announced Australian live dates in support of their debut full-length. Except for Brisbane and Perth, the underground shooting stars will be joined by special guests NO HAVEN.

Regarding the tour, DÉPARTE commented: “After more than a year since our last live performance, we are set to tour Australia this Spring in support of our debut album, ‘Failure, Subside’. The stage is where we feel the most at home, where we can truly express ourselves and create a deeply engaging, visceral experience for our audience. To say we are excited about this would be an understatement. Joining us across the country will be our good friends NO HAVEN, fresh off the release of their debut EP ‘Colours of Nothing’.”
