Protomartyr – Worm In Heaven

We have been eagerly waiting for Protomartyr’s fifth studio album Ultimate Success Today, but due to the pandemic, it has been put back from its original release date at the end of this month to the 17th July. They have also cancelled all their planned live shows.

So to console ourselves we at least have a second track from the record to enjoy. Worm In Heaven closes out the album and is a slow burning triumph, building from its low-key, plaintive beginnings into a brooding, intense coda.

I am a worm in heaven
so close to grace
could lick it off of the boot heels of the blessed

Order the album here.
