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.”

Listen to the track below:

“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.
