“Don’t waste your time on people, don’t give them any second chance and lock yourself away from anybody.”
Release Their New Single “Loner” With An Intensive Music Video
This song is more than another notch in the impressive discography of French doom metal visionariesHANGMAN’S CHAIR but an emotional deep-dive into the soul and heart of Parisiennes banlieues: Today, the band from Paris releases their new single “Loner” – the song comes with an intensive music video featuring four outstanding protagonists that are brave enough to share all their sorrows, hopes, and dreams with the listener.
Beautifully accompanied by the grinding dark doom of HANGMAN’S CHAIR, “Loner” presents itself as an outstanding track that can be watched here: https://youtu.be/AKHuh134pyQ
The band states:“Loneliness is dangerous, it’s addictive” as the old saying goes. The LONER video is a nonfiction documentary directed by the talented Kendy Ty. In the contemplative spirit of Terrence Malick, he followed real-life characters Laura, Sam, Sébastien, and Michel into their everyday concerns, struggling with the outside world, living cut off the masses.
Being different and outcasts are their common thread, the picture of Michel’s prison tattoo speaks for itself.
Don’t waste your time on people, don’t give them any second chance, and lock yourself away from anybody… does that ring a bell with you too?”
HANGMAN’S CHAIR, formed in 2005 in Paris, is one of the most unique sounding Doom Rock bands currently active. Through the years, they have found and fine-tuned their own sonic brand, somewhere at the crossroads between Type O Negative, Life Of Agony, and Sisters of Mercy, to name a few, mixed with certain street credibility connected to the group’s roots in hardcore. Each album takes its strength and essence from the band members’ life experiences, which they portrait with unflinching honesty. Whether it is the loss of band members, drug overdoses, or the hardships of living in suburban Paris, all those human emotions resonate within each of their songs as they embrace the darkness and transform it into something beautiful, heavy, and melancholic.
HANGMAN’S CHAIR is:
Julien Chanut – Guitar
Cédric Toufouti – Guitar, Vocals
Mehdi Thepegnier – Drums
