‘Radiate Me’ is an introspective track about overcoming personal challenges and striving for self-improvement. The song’s powerful lyrics depict a battle with inner demons, using vivid imagery like a ‘pest plant’ to symbolise life’s negative influences. ‘Radiate Me’ stands as an anthem for those struggling with their inner selves, emphasising the beauty of a life beyond personal turmoil.

Vocalist Robin comments:

“The last year was quite tough for me, as my mother was diagnosed with two types of cancer. She immediately took up the fight and underwent chemotherapy, which was extremely hard on her. I drove her to various hospitals time and again, took care of the household, and cared for her as a person.

But primarily, I saw her suffer and what the poison of this treatment did to her. The chemotherapy almost killed her. ‘Radiate Me’ is all of that in one song. As it stands now, she is doing well and we all hope that it stays that way. F*ck cancer!”

VENUES went into the studio with producer Christoph Wieczorek (Annisokay) to record their latest album Solace (2021, Arising Empire), who coated their massive sound with a metallic alloy of remarkable precision.

“We wanted to be more metal,”Robin comments. “There were some pop sensibilities of Aspire we wanted to replace with rather the opposite.”

Melody and punch-drunk heaviness, metal and alternative rock, zeitgeist and authenticity, barbed choruses and unleashed creativity: with their soaring sophomore release, VENUES fulfiled every single promise they gave on Solace.

“2020 showed all of us how much the band is helping us keep our sanity,” guitarist Robin muses. “Almost the whole band went through minor or medium crises since the release of our debut. Relationships went sour, things were ended and begun.

In times like these, our second album was the light at the end of the tunnel. Something we all could look forward to. Our music held our heads above water.

It was a big leap, going from previous album Aspire to Solace, and a logical one, too. Ten songs, ten exorcisms of negative energy, ten lifesavers.
