The Boxer Rebellion is an alternative rock band from London. The cold still is their third full length album. When I met the band for the first time they told me that a lot of the lyrics revolved around accepting death and accepting your fate. But they didn't want to portray that in a negative light for the album cover. Rather have a positive feel but hinting at something darker.
I wanted to convey the feeling and meaning of the album with a simple metaphor for life. A single leaf full of life on the front cover. The leaf ages step by step inside the booklet, ending on the last page where only the bare skeleton is left.
