New Lightworker Album “How The Beautiful Decay” Set For April Release, “First Light” Video Launched


Lightworker‘s next studio album “How The Beautiful Decay” is headed for an April 19th release on Solid State Records. Among the ten songs featured upon the Beau Burchell (of Saosin) produced effort is “Mea Culpa“, which finds guest sports from members of Wolves At The Gate & Fallujah.

Speaking on this first single and the album, the band’s guitarist Grayson Hurd offered:

“As a band, each member hit a rough patch at least once the last few years. The song broaches on those struggles with unflinching honesty about where our minds went. However, no matter how vivid and intrusive those thoughts became, hanging on for a glimpse of the next day was a simple yet powerful reminder that life is a gift of peaks and valleys worth experiencing.”

“When we were first discussing the musical direction and what the record would be about, the title How The Beautiful Decay popped into my head and stayed there. ‘Decay‘ suggests changing and withering over time. Often, you don’t notice until years down the line that it started a long time ago.

We noticed the decay happening in our own lives slowly but surely during the pandemic — we couldn’t see friends and family and we were stuck in our homes for a period, not sure what to do. It wasn’t until we had begun writing the record when we really noticed the effect this change had taken on us, for better or worse.

The title encompasses what we were going through and had gone through over the prior two years. The record is about recognizing the beauty in the world, but still acknowledging the darkness without fear and doing whatever you can to find a way through it.”

For now you can check out the lead single, “First Light“, and its official music video, which was directed and edited by Dawson and Parker Scholz. Pre-orders for the record can be found at
