ERRA Announce Deluxe Edition of Self-Titled Release; Share \”Nigh to Silence\”

ERRA are issuing a deluxe version of their latest album S/T on March 18 via UNFD. The album is available for pre-order here. The expanded edition is beefed up with seven additional tracks, including a feature from Spiritbox\’s Courtney LaPlante along with three covers. With touring off the table for most of 2021, the band found other means of creative outlet, and opted to re-enter the studio with producers Carson and Grant around the time of the release of what would go on to become their career-defining self titled album. Today, the band is sharing the video for \”Nigh to Silence.\” Watch it here. \”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,\” says guitarist/clean vocalist Jesse Cash. \”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.\” Regarding the deeper meaning of \”Nigh to Silence,\” Cash says, \”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.\’ Cash also offers some insight into the band\’s process, saying, \”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.\” On their career-defining fifth studio album ERRA, the band confronts depression, anxiety and desperation throughout. They take listeners on a near-out-of-body journey to Aokigahara, the infamous Suicide Forest of Japan; into episodic storytelling that would make Black Mirror writers proud; and into the literary works of Cormac McCarthy and Hubert Selby Jr. Recorded, mixed, and mastered by Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland, it’s a definitive mission statement for guitarist Jesse Cash, vocalist J.T. Cavey, drummer Alex Ballew, bassist Conor Hesse, and guitarist Sean Price, each of them already well-respected players revered for their inspiring technicality and raw, natural talent.
