WITHERFALL Release Video For The Emotional “The River”

A new and very different side of Witherfall emerges in the video of the highly emotional “The River”.
After their homages to throwback horror with “As I Lie Awake” and “The Other Side Of Fear” the brand new video finally shows a full band performance.


Both the video, directed by Bradford Lloyd Cooper for Combobulated Arts Incorporated, and the song have a very special and personal meaning:

“It’s a song about singer Joseph Michael’s deceased father. It refers to the family fishing spot up near Thousand Islands by the Canadian border of New York State. During the recording, tears were shed… Hopefully, this song honours JM’s father appropriately. RIP Kenneth Martin Furney.”


“The River” is the fifth single taken from “Curse Of Autumn”, the upcoming album scheduled for a worldwide release on March 5th, 2021 with the US vinyl being available April 2nd, 2021.


The album, available in digital and several physical formats and can be purchased here.
