SETYØURSAILS Jules interview

Just recently, German metalcore powerhouse SETYØURSAILS released their second album and label debut, Nightfall, marking a riveting start with their first single, “Ghosts”, featuring Annisokay frontman Rudi Schwarzer. 

Young, enraged and standing steadfastly against hate – SETYØURSAILS perform uncompromising yet melodic post-hardcore-influenced metalcore, convincing both live and on record. The unit has already performed at well-known festivals (Reload Festival, Traffic Jam Open Air) and converted fans alongside genre greats like Bullet for My Valentine, Hatebreed, JINJER and Walls of Jericho with their unbeatable live energy.

We caught up with vocalist Jules to talk about the record and how she deals with sharing highly personal thoughts and experiences in her songwriting. We also look back at her musical journey, from listening to her dad’s AC/DC records to her love for Paramore, and some of the new artists she’s excited about.

Watch the full interview below:

Nightfall stands as an impressive return for SETYØURSAILS, who once again prove their musical diversity. A mixture of catchy choruses and intense breakdowns are evident on brutally melodic “Why”, the changing spectrum of “Deadline”, and “Into the Storm”, which starts with a crisp deathcore intro. Among others, “Nightfall” (featuring Andy Doerner of metalcore veterans Caliban) shows the full straightforward range of Jules Mitch’s vocals, which oscillate between concise and clear, intense screams and expressive growling. “Mirror” begins atmospherically before bubbling up to an impressive journey through personal conflicts without losing its undeniably catchy quality. With tracks like “Secrets” and “Forgive Me” the band also presents its softer side. SETYØURSAILS are also full of surprises – together with Mike Perez from No Bragging Rights, they cover “Shallow” (from the film A Star Is Born) by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, and give the ballad their personal touch, once again proving their musical diversity. Nightfall was produced, recorded, mixed & mastered by Annisokay vocalist/guitarist Christoph Wieczorek and songwriter/producer Julian Breucker at Sawdust Recordings. Both have already worked with greats like Beyond The Black, Eisbrecher and Emil Bulls – just to name a few.


SETYØURSAILS about their new album:
“This album is the most honestly written work we could get out of ourselves. It reflects the struggle of dealing with oneself, fear and life itself. It’s dark, it’s loud and it hurts. But most importantly- it’s true.”
