We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of The Saddest Landscape’s new song “Kissed by Strangers” (listen below). The track is an unreleased song from our forthcoming vinyl box set that collects material from our past 15 years as a band. The box set is titled Declaring War on Nostalgia, and is scheduled to be released on November 11th.
“This track was recorded shortly after the release of our last LP, ‘Darkness Forgives,’ as part of a Converse Rubber Tracks session. It deals with the rather human duality of wanting to be fearless and embrace every new moment with wide open optimism, while at the same time struggling with a lifetime of learned self doubt and crippling anxiety that doesn’t allow you to enjoy almost anything. It is a feeling I deal with constantly.” – vocalist Andy Maddox

About The Saddest Landscape:
The Saddest Landscape is a long-running post hardcore act from the North Eastern United Sates. With passionate vocals and pummeling musical soundscapes, the band never relents nor wavers as they drag you through a maelstrom of emotion.
Since forming more than a decade ago in 2002, the band has accumulated an extensive discography of over 25 releases that include seminal splits with scene-favorites like Funeral Diner and Trophy Scars. After a brief respite in 2006 the band reconvened for a few European dates in 2008 which was followed by a self-released vinyl discography (All Is Apologized For. All Is Forgiven.) and the full-length You Will Not Survive on Panic Records.
Despite its members living hundreds of miles apart, time and distance has only enhanced The Saddest Landscape’s aggressive vitriol and drive. You Will Not Survive was followed up by splits with Pianos Become the Teeth and We Were Skeletons, 2012’s After the Lights LP, 2013’s Exit Wounded EP, a collaborative split release with label mates and friends My Fictions, and their latest LP – Darkness Forgives – the band’s 5th studio LP recorded over the summer of 2015 by Defeater’s Jay Maas.
