The transformation of Virginia and the Flood. A night train silently passes through small villages, deep forests and big cities. From time to time, eye to eye with reality. More often, drifting beneath the surface of a buried lake. Something that grows on you. That has always been there. Suddenly, the hole has risen from the subconscious and is standing there next to you, wants to hold your hand, take you out to dinner. The upcoming concept album ’The Dark Lord’, with its prior singles and symbolics, follows a series of encounters between Virginia and the Flood and the record´s titular character. After spending countless hours, days, weeks and years with The Dark Lord, who is darkness now? Stay Out West won’t get any darker than this.
