The ever-evolving quartet VAURA follows up their 2013 album ‘The Missing’ almost six years later with ‘Sables’, their most refined and contemplative release yet. Introspective and somber, ‘Sables’ finds the band shedding most of its post-metal heaviness in favor of experiments with brooding kosmische musik and the more avant-garde elements of new wave. Featuring Josh Strawn (Azar Swan) on vocals, guitar and synthesizers, Kevin Hufnagel (Gorguts, Dysrhythmia) on guitar, Toby Driver (Kayo Dot) on bass, and Charlie Schmid (Tombs) on drums and electronics, VAURA engages ever more with their UK and German prog/art rock influences to grandiose and eerie effect.
Sables will be released on CD, LP, and digital formats via Profound Lore on April 26th with preorders to be announced in the coming weeks.In the meantime, stream VAURA’s “The Ruins (Hymne)” at THIS LOCATION.
