Parting Gift unveil new track

Without Sin is taken from the band’s forthcoming Ensom EP. 

Without Sin follows the release of the driving and impactful Pale and showcases a more ethereal, melody-driven facet to the Manchester band’s far-reaching and expansive sound. Delivering the most emotive of performances to every audience they play to, Parting Gift’s latest release conveys that intensity perfectly.

“A word to the ordinary” says vocalist Zac Vernon of the track. “A reminder that this can happen to anyone, the purest of souls. Its taint does not pick and choose and it is ruthless. The ones who pursue their self-betterment can occasionally free themselves from it and take a breather, only to see it come back stronger. However, it’s a reminder that, in spite of the darkness, it is always worth not giving in.”

Parting Gift’s Ensom EP will be released via Fearless Records on 22 March and is a powerful statement from one of the UK’s most exciting and unique up and coming rock talents. It paints a dark but heady picture with the band’s unique approach to sound. Zac says “The basis of the entire EP is the feeling of a cold, dark entity making one unable to feel anything. The darkest of dreams and visions, delusions. It is walking the thin line between what is real and what is in your mind. It is the obsession by what is seemingly out of one’s control. A sort of coping strategy for the pain it causes.”

Parting Gift will hit the road in the UK with Dream State following the EP’s release and will be playing various festivals this summer including Download Festival.
