News: Alcest Release New Song ‘Flamme Jumelle’

French shoegaze/post metal pioneers Alcest have released a new song entitled “Flamme Jumelle” ahead of their new record due out June 21. Les Chants De L’Aurore is set for release via Nuclear Blast Records.

Neige states:

“Despite its more accessible vibe, this song is actually the most personal song of the album for me. “Flamme Jumelle,” which means “Twin Flame,” is about the idea of loss in general and the difficulty of coping with the absence of someone you deeply loved. It could be a family member, a friend, or a partner. On a more spiritual level, the title refers to the possibility that certain souls are connected in this life and beyond, and that separation is temporary and just a mortal concept.”

Neige continues:

“In the metal scene, Alcest is a weird band; in the indie/post-rock scene Alcest is a weird band—We never quite fit in. This is how I feel in life, always an outsider; It’s not a problem, it’s just the way it is.”
