A quiet heartache threads through Angelo De Augustine's latest album, Tomb. It's a universal feeling, the kind that piles up over the years and yearns for resolution. Across this collection of songs, Angelo grapples with the past while searching for the best way to soothe an anguished heart. The album's title reveals these sentiments: "Throughout our lives we bury many dead things in our hearts and minds," Angelo says. "There they go to rest and hopefully are reborn as something beautiful for the world to behold."
Here on Tomb, the songs emerged out of necessity. Last year on December 20th, the singer arrived at his mailbox to find a letter; the instigation of a breakup. "I started the album then and there and finished writing it on Christmas Day," the musician recounts. Two months later, Angelo flew to New York City to record at Reservoir Studios.
While Tomb was born from one recent moment of pain, the album expanded to explore years of loss and disappointment. Angelo has previously compared his songwriting to waking after a vivid dream, but here he writes about real events and real people for the first time, bringing a deep sense of himself into the quiet, delicately crafted melodies.
Ultimately Tomb reflects a beginning for Angelo -- both emotionally and in his career. It's a motion towards positivity, addressing lost love, the worthwhile cost of honesty, and the ramifications of regret. In the end, Tomb isn't about burying or hiding something away, it's about opening the seal and letting something new emerge. It's about telling people how you feel when you feel it, instead of burying everything over the span of years. Like the best heartbreak albums, Tomb transforms inward pain into universal beauty. The songs have helped him to heal and now they can help those who hear them. "This album is, at its core, a prayer for hope and clarity, and a prayer for love," Angelo says.
