From The Wilderness of Manitoba’s inception, the band has redefined itself with every new release. Following a three year hiatus, they return with a new line-up and album, Farewell To Cathedral – about leaving your safe place in order to move forward and grow. Many of the album’s songs deal with loss through the eyes of hope – believing in the hope one can find through melancholy. Listen to Farewell To Cathedral in its entirety here.
Just ahead of the LP release, they share “The Well Has Run Dry” about accepting responsibility for failure and moving through adversity, rather than dwelling on disappointment.
The protagonist is an older man who looks back on his life and reflects on certain tragedies, but fails to realize that he played a major role in their occurrences.
