(watch the video below)
Chris Cayford, who wrote the song, explains a bit about 'Balancing The Dark':“This song, almost unintentionally, became one of the most unsettling we’ve ever written. I remember the first time we put keys over drone on the intro/outro and it instantly set the tone. To me, it just has this bad atmosphere and gives you a feeling that you’re not quite safe yet. The video is a reflection of that, it’s heavily influenced by Sean Durkin’s Martha Marcy May Marlene & The Sound Of My Voice by Zal Batmanglij both of which install a similar feeling in me.”

ROLO TOMASSI will release their incredible, brand new studio album
'Time Will Die And love Will Bury It' on March 2nd 2018 through Holy Roar Records. Album pre-orders with ticket and album bundles for UK headline dates available from the link below
A bit on the new album from James Spence (keys and vocals) - "The title was taken from a print a friend of ours had made in tribute to a poem by Richard Brautigan. I knew straight away its what I wanted to call the album. Following something like (previous album) 'Grievances', which was quite monochromatic, I felt this title had a lot more optimism and colour to it which is how I wanted the music to sound. I had the title before we'd even started thinking about writing music and I used it as a sort of brief for how I thought a record with that title should sound. 'Rituals' is only one element to this album which has a lot more to give than just brutally heavy music."
The band also announced a UK tour April 2018, all dates are below they will also play STRANGEFORMs FEST in Leeds on April 8th
