German metal band Venues has released “Uncaged Birds,” the third single from its upcoming album, “Solace,” due Aug. 27, 2021, via Arising Empire. Pre-orders for the album, including limited colored vinyl, are available here.
In cooperation with videographer Marius Milinski, the story that began in NSFW videos for previous singles “Rite of Passage” and “Shifting Colors” continues with “Uncaged Birds.”
“‘Uncaged Birds’ is a very special single for me as it is the first song that we wrote and recorded with our new members Lela and Valentin,” vocalist Robin said. “It was our internal proof that our new set-up works perfectly and just makes more fun than ever before! Thematically, the track is about an unhappy relationship, from which one is crushed and narrowed until one finally breaks out of it.”
From the depths of its deepest crisis, Venues has re-emerged, welcoming two new members: clean vocalist Lela and guitarist Valentin. Former vocalist Nyves quit the band mid-tour, following the release of the band’s debut album, “Aspire” (2018). Following guitarist Constantin witnessing a performance of Lela at a Steel Panther show, the band found its new clean vocalist.
“We wanted to be more metal,” Robin said. “There were some pop sensibilities of ‘Aspire’ that we wanted to replace with rather the opposite.”
“2020 showed all of us how much the band is helping us keep our sanity,” he continued. “Almost the whole band went through minor or medium crises since the release of our debut. Relationships went sour, things ended and began. In times like these, our second album was the light at the end of the tunnel. Something we all could look forward to. Our music held our heads above water.”
