Distorted Sound is pleased the premiere the brand new song from Canadian sludge metallers BISON!
The new song, titled Until The Earth Is Empty, is taken from the band’s upcoming new studio album, You Are Not The Ocean You Are The Patient, which is scheduled to be released in June. Speaking about the new album, guitarist/vocalist James Farwell says, “it was important that the songs fit together to tell a bit of a story. A story of a new life and escaping the city, while still being tethered to it. Life is a constant fight, and though I have taken the fight to a more natural and beautiful place, that struggle still persists. This is an album of daily living. It is for everyone.”
Listen to Until The Earth Is Empty exclusively here:
Whilst their previous record, Lovelessness, was recorded in Chicago by Sanford Parker (YOB), the band decided to record the new album in their hometown, with long time friend Jesse Gander at Rain City Recorders. “I wanted to also steep myself in music that was not necessarily heavy in the obvious sense, so I was listening to lots of blues while writing the album: Peter Green, MUDDY WATERS and HOWLIN WOLF. There was also lots of instrumental rock music playing on my long commutes to Vancouver for work and rehearsals” James Farwell says. Guitarist and vocalist Dan And adds, “the new songs still sound like ‘us,’ whatever that means, but we aren’t concerned with shying away from whatever influences creep up. The older we get and the longer we play together, the less we give a shit about trying to sound like anything in particular.”
You Are Not The Ocean You Are The Patient is set for release on June 23rd via Pelagic Records. Pre-orders are available now and can be purchased here.
