LASTELLE - Release Video For New Single "Only Apathy"

L A S T E L L E is an Atmospheric Post-Hardcore band hailing from Oxfordshire UK. With comparisons being drawn to the likes of Devil Sold His Soul, Casey, Underoath, Being As An Ocean, and The Elijah; LASTELLE are writing music that blends the power and hooks of Post-Hardcore with the dense soundscapes and textures of Post-Rock. Focusing on dynamic song writing, cascading vocal hooks, and emotional lyrics. Making some bold first steps since forming in September 2018, with streaming plays totalling over 300,000 on Spotify alone, official music video views totalling over 250,000, and multiple tours and shows under their belts already. They’ve shared the stage with the likes of DREAM STATE, THECITYISOURS, POLAR, PRESS TO MECO, AS EVERYTHING UNFOLDS, and more.

The band recently joined forces with new UK label Year Of The Rat Records in August and released their first single ‘Coping Without A Cure’ which has already racked up over 75,000 plays on Spotify alone. Next single ‘Distant Bodies’ landed coverage with Kerrang Radio, Triple J, Rock Sound, Dreambound and official playlisting with Apple Music, BBC and Deezer. The third single ‘Only Apathy’ is released on the 11th December and the band will announce their upcoming EP ‘DELICATE’ with pre-orders going live on this date too. DELICATE EP will be released on the 26th February 2021 through Year Of The Rat Records / Beth Shalom Records, with a limited run of coloured vinyl available. The single has already had coverage and support from Kerrang Radio, Punktastic, BBC, Caliber TV, Dreambound, and many other publications.

Speaking about ‘Only Apathy’ Freddie Whatmore says "This song was actually the last song we wrote for the EP, with it’s first iteration in a completely different key, and with a totally different chorus. After reworking, it’s turned out to be one of our favourites. Vocally, it’s quite relentless, and it’s the most challenging track for Mike to sing and play drums together on, in a live setting. Lyrically it focuses on a tough juxtaposition of trying to support someone suffering from depression, whilst it consequently takes a toll on your own mental health. The video is disorienting and confusing to reflect this - I think Adam and Rich did a great job capturing that on video’’
