Sanctum & Solace, North Queensland’s most fire new heavy act, are today bringing their tropical heat to everyone. Today they are dropping their new track/lyric video Slave, a brand new taste of a forthcoming EP that will see the light of day in early 2018. Slave will be available for purchase and for streaming from this Friday December 1st on iTunes and Spotify.
The band have been in operation since 2013 and have found themselves with a strong foothold in the Queensland heavy music scene due to an undeniably awesome work and tour ethic, playing a tonne of shows this year and last and have been packing out shows up and down the QLD coast.
The outfit put out Taedium Vitae in October to an awaiting fanbase, which was the first taste of this new music. They even received some love from triple j’s Short. Fast. Loud. presenter, Josh Merriel, who has also got behind the band from the start – even playing Keeper, a track from their early Demos on SFL. They have played along side the likes of Aussie bands Deadlights, Vitals, Promethean, Stepson and She Cries Wolf, the band has received overwhelming responses from everywhere they’ve played.
This new track ‘Slave’ is an absolute force of nature from go to whoa, with the song not letting up throughout it’s entirety. Soon to be releasing a newly recorded EP mixed and mastered by Gareth Hargreaves at Tall Tree Studios which has now sadly closed down. Gareth Hargreaves at Tall Tree Studios recorded the band’s energetic take on hardcore, using all live recordings. The band wanted to capture that live feeling and emotion captured on stage.
James Levin, guitarist for the band, said that they were absolutely stoked to be getting this track out into the world. “We put everything we have into our music and these new tracks are 100% the best things we have created to date – so I couldn’t be more excited to get them out, to be honest.”
