Fiddlehead have announced details of their upcoming third album, Death Is Nothing To Us, due out on August 18 via Run For Cover Records. The album's lead single "Sullenboy" is out today and can be found below.


Death Is Nothing To Us is the third part in a trilogy of albums that began with 2018's Springtime and Blind and continued on 2021 release Between the Richness. Frontman Patrick Flynn broke down the themes of the latter album, chiefly the loss of his father, in a conversation with The FADER published at the time.

Speaking in a new statement about Death Is Nothing To Us , Flynn says: "I don’t want people to romanticize grief and depression, myself included. But I wanted to write about the way loss can perpetuate this feeling of sadness in your life. I didn’t intend to make some kind of thematic trilogy but there is this connection to the first two records, and this album sort of rounds out some of the stages of grief that weren’t addressed previously, especially this feeling of stickiness that a depressive attitude can have.


Fiddlehead are playing across North America this summer as they open for Citizen. They will then head out on their own headline tour in September and October. Scroll down for details.
