Unveiling their signing to SharpTone Records earlier this week, “cinema-core” specialists The Gloom In The Corner have officially pulled back the curtain on their latest project. Today, the band reveals news of their sophomore studio album Trinity, and with it, the continuation of the ever-unfolding story arc laid out by each of their previous concept-based releases.
 
Due out October 28Trinity follows formerly deceased characters Rachel Barker, Ethan Hardy, and Clara Carne as they battle their way through The Rabbit Hole dimension, and features a variety of artists such as Ryan Kirby (Fit For A King)Joe Badolato (Fit For An Autopsy)Lauren Babic (Red Handed Denial), and Elijah Witt (Cane Hill), who were specifically cast by the band to help bring the story to life.
 
Wasting no time kicking off the current era with a bang, vocalist Mikey Arthur, guitarist Matt Stevens, bassist Paul Musolino, and drummer Nic Haberle, begin by introducing listeners to the first member the unholy trinity via new single ‘Ronin‘ ft. Ryo Kinoshita of Crystal Lake.
 
“‘Ronin’, from a lore perspective, re-introduces ‘Homecoming’ protagonist Ethan Hardy after his death at the end of that EP,” front man Mikey Arthur explains. “Upon donning a new suit of armor, known as the ‘Black Cloud’, he pushes his emotions deep inside, channeling them into a display of violence. Hardy wreaks havoc across Hell under no command but his own, earning the name of ‘The Ronin’. The redux of both the ‘Witch Hunt’ and ‘Rodent’ breakdown not only serves as an Easter egg for old fans, but continues the story begun in ‘Homecoming’ with more brutality and gore.”
 
“As always, the track serves as an analogy, albeit a tragic one,” the singer continues. “Despite how much you may ask for help, or that people can see that you’re in pain, you’re on your own and the only one who can fix you is you. ‘Ronin’ is an angry, relentless tirade that, in short says; ‘I came to you when I needed help after you said that you would, and you sat back and did nothing. Go fuck yourself.'”
