Premiere: Mines ‘Your Ever Failing Happiness’ – Releases This Friday via Trepanation Recordings
If filthy blackened sludge wrapped up in a post-metal vision is your idea of musical heaven, or should that be hell, then you really need to sit up and take note of Swansea’s seventh son’s Mines. Starting off life off as a duo with their self-titled debut release back in 2017, in 2022 the band is an entirely different beast as they now consist of five members and are preparing to unchain their new album, Your Ever Failing Happiness, this Friday, 4th March, through Trepanation Recordings.
The band comments on the music contained within, ‘Your Ever Failing Happiness focuses on the varying aspects of life. From obsession, failure, hope, and love. It is a record littered with textures with the aim to aid the listener to take what they want from the music and create their own interpretations.’
And today, 48 hours prior to its official release, we can bring you all five tracks from this crushing album in its thirty-six-minute entirety. Now click play below and surrender to the suffocating darkness that is Mines…
More On Mines & ‘Your Ever Failing Happiness’
Your Ever Failing Happiness is the immense new album from Swansea, Wales based sludge/noise rock monsters Mines. Your Ever Failing Happiness reflects on the various themes of life. Love, desperation, obsession, hope and failure.
Recorded in late 2020 in a dilapidated mansion in West Wales, the building leant itself to the atmosphere of the album. Vast, cold, intense, uncomfortable yet at the same time, enjoyable. Written over the course of two years, Your Ever Failing Happiness encapsulates the moments and observations in life over that period of time.
