VIDEO & TOUR NEWS: COVE drop video for ‘Solis’, tour July/August 2017

Tour includes Hull, Leeds and Manchester


COVE mark their return by unleashing their new video for ‘Solis’. The track brims with energy and ear for detail, cementing the band as masters of cacophony who are set to make one hell of a dent in British heavy music.

“The meaning of the song ‘Solis’ is subjective to the listener, everyone in the band helped contribute to it and in a way we all have our own definition of what the song is about. To some it may hint at the idea of when one door closes another opens and to someone else it may point at something far more emotive, the loss of a loved one for example. We feel song values are compromised when the outright meaning is spelled out too easily, it’s like telling someone the end of a film before they’ve watched it. Our way of thinking is that the meaning is personal to the individual/individuals listening at that moment in time. We believe this gives the audience a way to have their own personal connection with a song and not be persuaded into what they should take from it”

Recorded by Tom Keech (We Are The Ocean, Don Broco) in the midst of British winter at a studio that was undergoing construction, the icy and derelict surroundings helped to spawn the creation of ‘Solis’. Having spent much of 2017 crafting new music, the track is a taster of things to come from COVE.

Comprising of vocalist Ben Shorten, bassist Charlie Smith, drummer Jack Bowdery and guitarists Ben Brazier & Pete Woolven, COVE released their debut effort We Were Once Lost in October of 2016. Widespread praise for the record fuelled a hefty touring schedule, including shows with Blood Youth, Create To Inspire and Holding Absence.
