York, UK band InVisions have signed to Stay Sick Recordings. The band will release Between You & Me on February 8, 2019.
The band has just shared the new video for the song “Too Far Gone.”
Guitarist Lucas Gabb says, “We were all at work, just a normal day, when we got a message from our manager saying that Mike and Fronz were listening to the new record. Pretty much straight away he showed interest and said he’d be in touch with a formal offer to join the label, which was mad! Mike has a badass history in the music industry and Fronz is G, so we’re definitely really hyped to get on board with them for the new record!”
InVisions previously released the first cut from the record, “Good for Nothing.” It’s a pummeling, relentless statement of intent, showcasing an ear for colossal hooks and choruses, accentuated with stabbing orchestral layers and electronic elements.
“‘Good for Nothing’ was the second track we wrote for the new record so we’ve been sat on this track for what feels like forever!,” explained Gabb. “When Alex and I went into writing this track, we knew we wanted to incorporate a guitar riff driven chorus that’s not only catchy, but something that keeps your head boppin’! Lyrically, the track deals with the idea of using vices to escape yourself even though you know they are damaging you and are only a short term solution. It’s all about the struggle to take control over your life and breaking out of that negative cycle.”
Spawned into being in 2016 from the ashes of former local bands in their hometown of York, England, InVisions are contagious, NSFW, and blistering. Drawing from a plethora of influences — the adrenaline and aggression in metalcore, combined with intricate guitar work inspired by ’80s thrash, with the no-fucks-given attitude of modern rap — it’s all tied together with the schizophrenic vocals of Ben Ville. They lead at the helm, ranging from guttural growls to biting and demonic squeals, along with moments of relief in his emotive singing.
Their self-released debut album Never Nothing arrived in August 2017, which was recorded at Innersound Studios with Sam and Joe Graves (Asking Alexandria, Eyes Set To Kill, Deaf Havana).
InVisions returned to Innersound Studios to record their forthcoming second record Between You & Me. Guitarist Alex Scott said, “Between You & Me is a phrase everyone has said at some point when confiding in another person or divulging personal information. It’s the lead in to a confession, an off-the-record statement. It wholly sums up the themes that this album explores and the way in which it portrays them.”
