‘The Absent‘ is a song really close to my heart, I lost two family members to dementia and Alzheimer’s a few months back and the whole thing is based on that experience” (explains singer Jeremy Gomez) “Such awful diseases… The deterioration is so slow, agonising and generally devastating for everyone involved. I’m really proud of what we have done with this. I can’t wait for everyone to see the video and also bring the power and emotion that this song evokes to the stage.”
The Absent also features a guest appearance by SIKTH singer Mikee Goodman.
“Mikee and I always spoke about collaborating on a song about mental health and I think this was the perfect moment to do it.” (Continues Gomez) “He added his own unique brand to the song and I think the results are amazing!”
This is what the SIKTH frontman has to say about The Absent:
“Proud to be part of this and such an important subject to sing about. We need to get more funding and research for a cure.”
Red Method are also going to be playing The “Sophie Lancaster” stage of Bloodstock on the 10th of August at 14:20.
“We’ve got big surprises for everyone that makes their way down to see us” (Promises Keyboard player Alex Avdis) “It’s such an honour to be invited to play the Sophie stage so early on in our career. Bloodstock is where Jeremy and I first met so this festival means a lot to me. We were in two bands that no longer exist, Jeremy was in Ted Maul and I was in The Defiled. If it wasn’t for this festival we might have never met” (explains Avdis) “It feels like a weird universal full circle, Red Method might have been born here in a weird way… who knows!?”
