UK powerful prog rock combo Final Coil are thrilled to announce that their sophomore album “The World We Left Behind for Others” will be out on April 12th, 2019, via Wormholedeath/The Orchard/Wormholedeath USA.

Speaking about the forthcoming album, Final Coil front man Phil Stiles said: “Heavier and darker than our debut, "The World We Left Behind for Others" was a challenging record to make. Perhaps it runs against the trend, as it is very much an album meant to be heard in one sitting (and in the correct order), but I believe it to be the best thing I have ever written and I am very excited for people to hear it”.

Says the band about “... And I’ll Leave”:
“"…And I’ll Leave" comes part way through the narrative arc of the album, detailing the break-up of a relationship from the perspective of a soldier’s wife. It’s clear from the lyrics that her husband is suffering from a form of post-traumatic stress disorder triggered by his experiences during World War II and it’s equally clear that he’s self-medicating with alcohol. As with so many of his generation, the need to maintain a "stiff upper lip" trumps the desperation to communicate, and so, awash with unresolved emotion, he becomes abusive and neglectful. Although she still loves him on some level, for her own safety, she has to leave. However, much as he is trapped by the expectations of his generation, so is she; and she soon finds that the support she might have expected from her family and friends is not forthcoming. It’s a tough lesson she learns, and one that results in a self-reliance she takes to her grave. Part of a wider narrative detailing the way society has become fragmented as a result of the seismic social and cultural shifts that occurred post World War II (seen through the eyes of a family torn apart by internal strife), "…and I’ll leave" tells the all too familiar story of ordinary people trapped into destructive patterns by social convention”.
