Burn Halo stream new song Dakota

Burn Halo are streaming a brand new song titled ‘Dakota’ from their upcoming sophomore album ‘Up From The Ashes’ which is set for release on 28th June over at Revolver.

The band took some time to talk about the song which you can read below:

Revolver: What’s this song about?
James Hart: “Dakota” is a song of despair. It tells the tale of a person that lives in a black hole. Their emptiness is eating them from the inside out. They’re so consumed by hatred and addiction that they neglect the idea of hope and faith in those that love them.

Which part of it did you come up with first? And what was the inspiration?
Brandon Lynn: I came up with the music bed first. I was inspired by A Perfect Circle, Muse, and Loudermilk. It’s a song I had written a couple of years ago and felt it would be a great fit for what we wanted to do on the new Burn Halo album.

Was this an easy song to write?
Lynn: Writing the music bed came pretty easy. It sounds like a song we sat down and wrote together.
Hart: Most of the vocal arrangements came pretty easy as well. I just sat down with an acoustic guitar strumming out all of the chords and was able to come up with the chorus melody in minutes. Lyrically, the song wrote itself. It’s a dark and aggressive song. I just had to put myself there mentally. Visualizing the things I see in people I know on a daily basis.

What sort of feedback have you gotten on this song so far?
Hart: It’s all been amazing. It’s songs like this that I think a lot of our fans have been wanting to hear. I know my old Eighteen Visions fan base will come to love it. This is the album I think they wanted from me as a vocalist and I’m glad we could deliver.
