Infinite Illusion has dropped their new single “Absence,” inspired by the tolls of mental illness as drummer Daniel Saergeant speaks about having a mental breakdown in 2019 from PTSD. “Absence” was written at a time of discovering I have PTSD, I had a mental breakdown mid-2019. I learned that I’d been holding onto trauma from a young age that was tired of “saving face” and “sucking it up”. We wanted to write something both lyrically and instrumentally that would highlight the journey/challenges other people face when understanding their mental health.” “We hope that what we have written encapsulates some of these moments. Our message is to let people know they don’t have to go through struggle on their own, there is hope on the horizon and to stay strong.”
Since forming two years ago, the band has shared the stage with Drown This City, The Comfort, Foxblood, and more. Check out the music video for the track below.
