Band Biographies: Her Despair


HER DESPAIR began as a solo studio project with the release of the 2015 album “Hymns For the Hopeless.” Showcasing the melodramatic sound and aesthetic of gothic music with the accessibility of punk and the stylings of heavy metal, the project has subsequently evolved into the current full line-up.

Drawing influence from such classic acts as The Sisters of Mercy and Fields of the Nephilim, alongside more contemporary bands such as HIM, Rammstein and The 69 Eyes, Her Despair create their own unique twist on the styles they are inspired by.

“Mournography,” the follow-up EP and debut release as a full band, was released in July 2018 in association with Spectre Records and Dewar PR. Recorded at Whitehouse Studios with producer Matt Bew, the EP helped the band develop and engage their audience significantly; both personally and through frequent use of social media.

During Summer 2019, work was completed on the latest opus; “Exorcisms of Eroticism.” Recorded again with Matt Bew at Whitehouse Studios, HER DESPAIR have evolved and improved the formula demonstrated in their previous output, stating.

“Exorcisms of Eroticism” is the dark and dramatic collection of six new gothic rock anthems from HER DESPAIR. Designed to unravel the mysteries of the theologic and the erotic, each song is set to a storm of symphonic instrumentation; providing the perfect soundtrack for your sorrows. The Mourning fades, now the Exorcisms begin...

Continuing to expand their fan base throughout live performances as both headliner and support in cities across the UK including London, Leeds, Leicester, Oxford, Bournemouth and Reading, 2019 has also seen HER DESPAIR perform at Darker Days Festival, with further concerts confirmed, including the Marquis Masquerade Goth Festival in Whitby. Clouds of smoke and lights theatrically immerse the audience, providing the perfect setting to experience the compelling material.
