Forms Share New Song “All Souls Day”: Listen
Today is the feast of the dead. But because I grew up Jewish, I certainly had to google what that exactly meant. Here is what I deduced: The Day of the Dead – also known as the Day of the Dead or commemoration of all departed worshipers – is a day to remember those who have died. This year it also means that we are getting a brand new single from the duo of Queens The Forms, also called “All Souls Day”.
Following “Head Underwater” and “Southern Ocean,” “All Souls Day” was recorded by Steve Albini at a church in Rockaway, according to band members Alex Tween and Matt Walsh.
