By on 16 May 2017

This new single from UK post hardcore band Row Of Ashes ‘Let The Long Night Fade’ is the title track from the band’s new album out 24 September on Third I Rex (UK) and The Braves Records (SPA). Find out more about Row of Ashes on the Third I Rex Bandcamp page.

Row Of Ashes are:

Will Turner-Duffin – Guitar (Sonance/It’s a Lunken)
Eliza Gregory – Vocals/Lyrics (vocals featured w/: Necro Deathmort/Ladyscraper/Pleura)
Dan Arrowsmith – Drums (Wild Dogs in Winter)
Chris Wilson – Bass (Executive Distraction Tasks, Canaya)

The album has been recorded and mixed by Joe Garcia at the infamous ‘Joe’s Garage’, Bristol, UK. Will Turner-Duffin has been taking care of the mastering.

Speaking abut their music, the band said:

“It would be usual to expect a singular modus operandi from a band who are predominantly seasoned in the heavier and less-mainstream end of the musical spectrum, drawing from and playing in Death Metal, Grind, Sludge and Hardcore outfits for the majority of their careers (a rough roll call of projects you can see next to each member’s name). Yet there’s more to RoA album than the traditions attributed to these genres, as there are influences called upon way outside of their musical origins making for a highly creative milieu, and the results near-defy categorisation. That’s not to say ‘LTLNF’ is a complete departure. As the debt to the dark and heavy side of music is palpable in the eye of the proverbial storm: in the death growls and furious droning riffs that pinpoint crescendos. But its presence in the atmospherics and more delicate, imperfect, where-do- we-go- from-here chanteuse vocals, strings, keyboards and piano parts which wouldn’t be out of place in a dank Berlin jazz club or an update on a Da-Da Art-house soundtrack, is faithfully retained and almost beautiful in its bleak outlook. These pieces run together seamlessly, and the stories told in the lyrics are influenced by the characters and landscapes of a 21st Century UK in existential crisis, the dilapidated sea-side towns, desolate countryside expanses, and rioting cities. This is a bold and brave record, for bold and brave music lovers who like their artists to lead the way down new, unexpected paths.”
