Premiering now on Side-Line is The Rain Within’s “Forward in Reverse”, a track which is influenced by the horror films Andy Deane loved as a kid: “It is driven by repetitious, haunting melodies that call back spiritually to themes from the films of Argento, Fulci, and Carpenter. Lyrically, it’s about trying to mend your heart and move forward before the weight of the world kills you.”

“Forward in Reverse” is taken off The Rain Within’s new album “Horrorshow” due out October 5th on Negative Gain.

The Rain Within’s sound is influenced by various bands, from the cold synthesizers of John Carpenter and Vangelis to the catchy pop structures of The Psychedelic Furs and Depeche Mode. Add to that of course well placed dance beats.

Here’s the new single, you can also stream / download it here.

About The Rain Within

After 2 self-released EPs, The Rain Within met up with Negative Gain Productions at a performance in LA on their first US tour. A first full-length album, “Dark Drive”, was released followed by “Atomic Eyes” which landed The Rain Within a slot on a nationwide tour with VNV Nation.

“Horrorshow” is the latest release for The Rain Within and is said to be their most aggressive and ambitious work to date.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
