(Toronto, ON – October 20, 2021) – Canadian DIY outfit Respire, described as an “orchestral post-everything collective,” have debuted a video for “Catacombs Part II” via Consequence HERE. The compelling and fantastical video is produced by Vanessa Gloux who also oversaw the band’s clips for “Tempest. “Catacombs,” arrives as the band has signed to Dine Alone Records, with both a digital re-release of the nine-song album available now and a vinyl version arriving in early 2022.

“’Catacombs Part II’ is about the ego’s destruction of nature, the collective, and inevitably, the self,” explains Egin Kongoli. “The human condition has long created false idols in its image, forsaking the natural world we co-inhabit for our self-gratification and self-aggrandizement. Our delusive mania for man-centric order now threatens to dislodge the entire pendulum of civilization and society. We have no one to blame but ourselves and our own egos. Our only salvation lies in community, in nature, and in finding what it means to live authentically as a collective.
