Enter the Depressive Blackened Gothwave Gates of HOURS OF WORSHIP “Smoke Yourself to Sleep”

When I saw that HOURS OF WORSHIP had a new single called “Smoke Yourself to Sleep,” I thought back to my wake and bake youth, those days when I couldn’t face morning or night without a heavy dose of weed. But when I hit play on it, suddenly my mind was filled with swinging chain censers and smoke swelling in the air around me, church bells ringing with hollow salvation in the distance, prayers intoning the approach of Death herself. This song is a masterpiece of depressive blackened gothwave, and it has everything I need to fill my surroundings with melancholy and resignation. It’s off their Death & Dying Vol. I EP that’s out May 26th on digital and a limited run of 50 cassettes via Worship the Deadorder it here. The EP also features a cover of Mütilation’s “The Eggs of Melancholy,” so you know this isn’t a record that’s going to fill you with toxic positivity; instead, it will let you slowly sink into the shadows of despair for a little while. Right now, hear Hours of Worship’s new single “Smoke Yourself to Sleep” below and prepare your resting place…
