Oh my goodness, this is a heavy one. Ebonivory have released a brand new track off their forthcoming album called ‘Explosions After Dark’ and never was there a more fitting title. It’s definitely heavier than we’ve ever heard from these proggy fellas and as vocalist Charlie Powlett says of the track:
“‘Explosions After Dark’ is an escalation of aggression for Ebonivory; it represents the darkest edge of our sound spectrum. We’re excited to be releasing something brimming with chaotic emotions and soundscapes, mirroring the unheard stories that brought us to where we are today. Although initially written several years ago, its lyrical nature only became more relevant as time went on; dealing with issues such as differentiation and cruelty through the lens of modern science fiction. We’re hoping that fans, old and new, allow these crashing auditory waves to wash over them and feel the chilling multiplex of themes hidden in this song’s depths.”
Hell yes. You can still catch them on tour with Glass Ocean before they head to the US and Canada in May supporting Caligula’s Horse on a massive 26 date run.
