Like Moths to Flames Announce New Album “THE CYCLES OF TRYING TO COPE” & Share “Kintsugi” Video

Like Moths To Flames have announced their new album THE CYCLES OF TRYING TO COPE. It arrives on May 10 via UNFD. Pre-order it here.

Today, the band has shared the video for the explosive juggernaut of a new single “Kintsugi,” which also shows off the melodic and contemplative side of the band. Watch it here

Each single that the band has released is related to a coping “cycle” and associated word. “Kinstugi” is “Cycle Two: Fracture.”

“Kintsugi” is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery by mending the areas of breakage with a mixture including powdered gold — essentially repairing the cracks with gold.

“When things go wrong, I think we are left to pick up the pieces and forced to choose which piece to leave with,” says singer Chris Roetter. “If it’s not possible to leave with everything the way it was before it broke, how do you know what piece to hold onto?”

 As for the album as a whole, Roetter shares, “The record encapsulates the many varying emotions we go through when trying to grow through life. The last few years, I really tried to harness some of those emotions as a catalyst to get through whatever I was going through at the time. I think we all have our own unique ways to cope and these are mine.”
