Valentine’s day is less than a month away, and leading up to the holiday is Astari Nite’s gothic love-letter, so to speak, to the tragic tale of star-crossed lovers made famous through the play by William Shakespeare, Romeo & Juliet.
“Capulet Loves Montague tells the tale of heartbreak and woe. How two people can fall in love but ultimately will be their undoing.” says frontman Mychael, who adds:
“Lyrically, “Capulet Loves Montague” came to life while my 11-year young best friend and I were fooling around with crayons on a rainy evening. Perhaps it was the colors that made it clear, a nursery rhyme was being created. A feeling of innocence came over me when the words “Christmas trees are frozen spiders, Cats are made from snow, terrified by what I think of, petrified in love” were written. I’m obsessed with silliness, which is often mistaken for my sadness, especially when it comes to storytelling.”

“Capulet Loves Montague” is being released via Negative Gain in North America and Danse Macabre Records in Europe, and will be on an album Astari Nite is releasing late spring.
