‘Voldemort’ is taken from their debut album, Better Weather, which was released June this year. Speaking to CelebMix at this year’s SlamDunk Festival back in March, vocalist and bassist Jayden Seeley elaborated on why the song is titled ‘Voldemort’.
“So, it’s a little lame but I’m a massive Harry Potter fan, and we all know the line from Hermione Granger which is “fear of the name only increases the fear of the thing itself”. So it’s the idea that mental illness is Voldemort, and everyone’s terrified to talk about it, but I think once people start talking about mental illness it’ll stop being so terrifying, and that’s what that song is about. It’s Voldemort! We should start talking about Voldemort.” – Jayden Seeley
