The band comment on the single:

“‘I Am But A Guest In Exile’ is leading into the final act of the album. The fear of being replaced is getting out of hand and delusion is spiralling out of control. The entity that has accompanied them for so long is beginning to force itself onto the protagonist. Has it already taken over? There’s no way to determine from the outside so is it even possible to notice from within? While suffering from sleep withdrawal and schizophrenic episodes the protagonist is repeating their mantra to stay in control: Don’t black out.”

Formed in Hamburg in 2018, Half Me – guitarists Chris and Julius, vocalist Chris, drummer Max and bassist Tobias -are one of the latest additions to the Arising Empire roster. Musically, Half Me blend a modern rendition of metal and hardcore with highlights of 90s nu-metal. Pounding riffs and breakdowns are accompanied by brutal, yet sometimes elegant, vocals that all balance together to formulate the band’s own distinctive sound. 

In the space of just two years, Half Me have made an impact in the music scene by self-producing their music and videos, displaying their intensive and energetic demeanour. Debuting with four singles initially, it was their their single ‘Exitwound’ (featuring Jack Bergin of Void of Vision) that gave the group a breakthrough and landed the band in the spotlight of Knotfest‘s Countdown to Oblivion.

Riding the high of their recent success, Half Me‘s highly anticipated debut album SOMA is finally unveiled and it’s very much worth the wait.
