Formed in Pensacola, Florida, October Noir features drummer Tyler Fleming, keyboardist Doug Lane, guitarist Trey Ozinga, and of course, lead vocals and bassist, Tom Noir.

Their new album, “Letters to Existence” will be released on September 22nd. The track list includes a wide range of songs that explore themes of loss, pain, love, death, and a deep connection to spirituality. The group dove into the making of this album, to explain its intrinsic link to nature, and its flow through the seasons of nature, and of life. Starting with the standout track “Spring”, drummer Tyler Fleming describes, “It lives up to the feel of Spring. It starts pretty mellow and then slams into its own. Here comes the album.”

Simultaneously inspiring, uplifting, and yet full of doom, “Letters to Existence” sounds like you are transported back to the 80s in a deeply spiritual way. This album takes you on a journey all the way from its most dark, thundering moments, to lighter, perhaps even pop-y moments. There is a really special, nostalgic quality to October Noir’s music. Especially in the song “Endless Lonely” - metallic riffs take and its “quintessential Tom Noir ballad” take us through a sense of yearning, and feature those powerhouse, raspy vocals we all know well from doom and goth rock. Only four songs later, the group takes on an upbeat, melodic sound that is reminiscent of The Cure’s “Friday I’m In Love” in fan favorite “Clench” midway through the album.

About October Noir:

Started in 2017 by lead vocalist and bassist Tom Noir, Floria based Goth/Doom-Rock group October Noir sets a foundation for the metal genre. Inspired by and drawing from numerous genres and artists such as The Cure, 80s Hair Metal, Lycia, Danzig, My Dying Bride, and Sisters of Mercy, and Type O Negative, October Noir utilizes various textures and layered sounds to evoke a dark and thundering sound. Paired with deeply spiritual and hard-hitting lyrics, Tom Noir, Doug Lane, Trey Ozinga, and Tyler Fleming create a new kind of rock that blows audiences out of the water time and time again with every release.
