March 18, 2022, Phoenix, Ariz. – Holy Fawn, who are in the midst of a U.S. tour with Deafheaven, have released “Death Is A Relief” (https://youtu.be/4L5FpH0lRT0), a new song, and the band’s Wax Bodega debut.

“’Death Is A Relief’ Is a song of loss,” explains guitar player/vocalist Ryan Osterman of the six-minute track. “Feeling like everything around you is moving and feeling stuck in place no matter how hard you fight.”

The video was directed by PJ Koelbel and is the first new music from the four-piece since 2020’s The Black Moon EP.

Holy Fawn independently released Death Spells in 2018, with the captivating underground album receiving a wider re-release via Triple Crown Records in 2019. Stereogum said the band and album are “impossible to ignore,” going on to call the 10-song release a “revelation.” Heavy Blog Is Heavy said the band is in a “realm all their own,” and dubbed Death Spells ”a “landmark” release.

The band trek overseas this Fall for a U.K. headline tour followed by a European outing with Cult of Luna and Caspian.
