To others, enjoy the Gothic splendor on “No Children Laughing Now”
Unto Others, the goth / metal hybrid formerly known as Idle Hands, has just released “No Children Laughing Now”, the third song from their upcoming second album, Strength.
The band goes out for the first time Mana in 2019 under the name Idle Hands, but changed its name when signing a deal with Roadrunner Records due to a branding issue. As was the case on this debut album, the band even managed to verify themselves on this new song, incorporating the new nickname into the lyrics.
Although the name of the band has changed, the characteristics of their sound remain firmly intact as “No Children Laughing Now” is a moody palette of lonely themes swept away by sadness-filled passages that yearn for something better through use. luminous melodies that allude to this possibility.

Speaking of the record, singer / guitarist Gabriel Franco commented: “I wish I could say it came to me like lightning, but the record was a process – a difficult process, to write, record and mix.”
“It was 10 months from start to finish, and the longest time I have ever spent on an album. You can decide if it’s good or bad. Arthur did a great job giving the record a sound. heavy organic and it was a privilege to work with him. What we have at the end of it is something that I am extremely proud of, for better or for worse, and a constant reminder to myself that we don’t do them. things because they are easy, we do them because they are difficult, ”he continued.
Strength was produced by Arthur Rizk (Power Trip, Cavalera Conspiracy, Crypt Sermon) at Redwood Studio in Philadelphia and Falcon Studios in Portland between June 2020 and April 2021. The album will be released September 24 on Roadrunner Records. Pre-order your copy here.
