Caligula’s Horse announce second single “The World Breathes With Me” from upcoming album ‘Charcoal Grace’

Caligulas Horse

Australian progressive metal outfit Caligula’s Horse release their new single “The World Breathes With Me” from their upcoming album Charcoal Grace, due out on January 26th, 2024. “The World Breathes With Me” is the second single and the 10-minute opening track from the new albumand takes the listener through the emotions and vibe of the new album.

The band shares about “The World Breathes With Me”:
“’The World Breathes With Me’ is a powerful musical journey that sets the stage for Charcoal Grace as a whole. It pulls right back to a bird’s eye view of what we saw and experienced during the years of the pandemic. While we did lose our faith in humanity, we ultimately reconnected in the understanding that we are all forever connected to one another through breath and to the world through each other.”

In November, the band released its first single Golem, which served as the first glimpse of the thematical depth of Charcoal Grace

The band says about Golem:
“Golem is about how we all struggled with the weight of expectation through the pandemic. We felt that weight acutely as musicians, being trapped with no notion of when, or even if, we would return to the life we knew, all while feeling the pressure to create our next work rising. While that’s our specific experience, the themes of Golem are something we can all relate to. It’s a heavy song with an emphasis on riffs and driving rhythms.”

Charcoal Grace is the 6th studio album of the band, and it combines raw rock power with immense emotional depth. Charcoal Grace is borne of the static hopelessness that the pandemic forced upon the band and, indeed, much of the world, these past few years. It is an album reckoning with the experiences and outcomes of this time geared, ultimately, towards catharsis – moving towards a more hopeful future. 

The title Charcoal Grace is described by the band as “the grim allure and strange beauty in stillness, silence, and loss”.  This can be heard through the album’s 10-minute opening track “The World Breathes With Me,” a mission statement for the album’s main themes. Musically, it’s a work of contrasts, moving from the lightest ebb to the heaviest flow. Meanwhile, the second track and first single from the album, “Golem,” examines struggling with the weight of expectation through the pandemic. It’s a heavy song with an emphasis on riffs and driving rhythms.
