This post is long overdue. Recently, For Want Of released their new album entitled Smoke via streaming on bandcamp. This, as well their contribution to Dog Knight’s Orchid Tribute, mark the first release of new music from them since their 2010 EP. Smoke builds further upon the chaotic and mathy sound, similar to Orchid/Hot Cross, that FOW is well known for. However, with a slew of screamo/hardcore bands releasing albums that sound the same, imo FOW finds a niche with a unique sound, thoughtful lyrics, and atmosphere with these songs. Smoke is highly recommended and easily one of my favorite releases of the year.
For Want Of will be going on tour with Mahria this summer!
