Modern metalcore outfit ERRA have premiered their brand new single “Nigh To Silence” online. The below music video accompanying it was directed and edited by Kevin Johnson. The song is one of seven lined up to grace a newly announced deluxe version of their current self-titled album.

That expanded edition of the record will feature seven bonus tracks in addition to the original album track listing and has been scheduled for a March 18th release date. The newly included material on it runs as follows:

13 – “Sol Absentia
14 – “Psalm Of Sedition
15 – “Nigh To Silence
16 – “Vanish Canvas” (feat. Courtney LaPlante of Spiritbox)
17 – “Stockholm Syndrome” (Muse cover)
18 – “Light My Way” (Audioslave cover)
19 – “Heresy” (Nine Inch Nails cover)

Speaking of this new cache of songs, the band’s guitarist/clean vocalist Jesse Cash stated:

“During the end of 2020 and the start of 2021, we tried to take advantage of not being able to tour and having extra time at home. So while we were rolling out singles and announcing our self-titled record, we were also in the studio recording some new songs for a deluxe edition of the record. This was our favorite of the bunch.”

Cash also commented of this newly shared single:

“The song is set on an empty earth observed by the moon. I intended to express as much loneliness as I could. Then, I thought of ‘walking in the shadow of my own ghost,’ which felt like the loneliest visual I could muster. I wrote the first line about how the process of writing music feels and my deeply internal fear of being forgotten or irrelevant: ‘Floating song, I caught in a dream and passed it on. Frail and fragile is the ghost that I will carry and time will swallow.'”

He continued:

“Creative ideas seemingly spring up out of nowhere, are nurtured into complete works, and once that is done, I immediately begin moving on to the next thing, to the degree that by the time the song is out and people are hearing it for the first time, I’ve already kind of said my goodbye, mourned its loss, and moved on from it entirely.

This always feels sad, but also cathartic to hand the song over to the listeners and relinquish ownership of it. It feels necessary for me to grow as a musician and as a person, to constantly acknowledge a lack of ownership over anything but myself. It was really special for me to finally write a song about the quiet poignancy of writing songs themselves, and ‘Nigh To Silence‘ has become one of my favorites.”
