On Tuesday, March 7th, Denver-based experimental psych-rock band The Drood released their latest digital single and music video for their song “Hallow” on eMERGENCY heARTS Records.
This driving industrial-esque song is carried by a jumping guitar rhythm and a rolling, almost hip-hop beat. Dealing with themes of self-awareness and the search for hidden knowledge, “Hallow” is a song that explores what people worship.
Hallow was written, performed, and recorded by The Drood in Lafayette, CO, US, with Daniel Watts (Percussion, Synths, Noise) and Nathan Jamiel (Bass Guitar, Guitar, and Vocals). Mixed by Daniel Watts. Mastered by Joep Hendrikx in The Netherlands.

The Drood was formed in 2012 and has since featured a rotating cast centred around the founding members Daniel Watts and Nathan Jamiel. While always exploring darker paths, The Drood’s eclectic nature has led them to experiment with everything from garage rock, shoegaze and industrial to ballads, ambient drones, soundscapes and more, even finding room for wry humour and novelty. The band has worked with Randall Frazier of The Legendary Pink Dots and Orbit Service and recently collaborated with Dead Voices On Air (solo project of Mark Spybey, founding member of Zoviet France, Download, and Beehatch) on a Psychic TV cover song. Most recently, the band composed an hour-long ambient session for the Mysteries of UB television show. The Drood has released two full-length albums and a number of singles and music videos.
