Melbourne’s Earth Caller have been very fuckin busy lately, having first caught our eyes and ears at Big Sound 2015, the five-piece metalcore madmen have announced they have a new album on the way called Crystal Death and the first song from it has been released.
‘Fall‘ made it’s way online today and already has everyone’s attention to see what these guys will offer next. We caught up with frontman Josh Collard to find out more:
Congrats on the new song man, tell us what this one is about?
“This song is about a bit of a messy break up I had and the process of how it came to unfold. I was a bit of a mess myself at the time and more or less realised that we were both guilty of similar things which is why Sophie Jest (who features on the track and acts in the videoclip) sings the chorus back at me in the bridge.”
And the new album Crystal Death isn’t too far away, what can we expect this time around?
“Lyrically this album is far more personal and emotional. Sonically it’s heavier, faster and more melodic. Honestly, the band has never been more proud of a body of work than we are of this album and judging by the overwhelmingly positive response we’ve already received from our new track ‘Fall‘ it appears the fans are into too!”
At Big Sound 2015 you blew us away and made an instant fan base, how has life improved for the band since that appearance?
“In many ways! Big Sound was actually the first show we played with [our] current line up so I’m happy to hear we still put on an impressive show!”
“We’ve actually got a whole bunch of exciting announcements coming in the next few days and I believe our set at Big Sound in 2015 played a big part in leading up to what we’re about to start announcing”
Fuck yeah, thats great to hear. You guys also signed to eOne too, how’s that been?
“eOne have been great to us. This year our Aussie fans may have noticed we’ve been a little bit quiet. The reason for this is because we’ve been focusing on the business side of things and making great leaps towards touring the US. eOne has played a great part in that!”
“Looking forward to talking more about that soon!”
Sick, sounds promising man. Any Aussie shows on the horizon?
“We’re headlining Plastic tonight in Melbourne for our single launch with some of Melbourne’s finest inc. Dregg, BLKLST, The Gloom In The Corner and the Avenue Project.”
“As far as touring goes we’re in the process of finalising our Australian Headliner for the album tour so everybody please keep your eyes and ears open for that one”
