Sea Of Promises

Album: Too Late To Hate (2016)


  • Running to around 4 minutes 50 seconds, "Sea Of Promises" is arguably the strongest track on the 2016 Too Late To Hate album. Co-written by lead vocalist John Lawton and lead guitarist Peter Hesslein, this is somewhere we've all been, although it has a more specific inspiration.

    In a November 2016 interview with Songfacts, Lawton said it was "inspired by what I have seen happening in the Middle East and the plight of Syrian refugees... The many so-called promises of refugee smugglers and the consequent disasters that followed, really does bring it home." >>
