Austin, TX-based melodic death metallers VEX have released new single “Timeworn” along with accompanying music video (produced by Necroblanca Photography & Design). The band will be hitting the road with Century Media’s Oceans of Slumber and Black Lion Records’ artist Hinayana in support of the single this month.
Drummer Eoghan McCloskey remarked, “We chose ‘Timeworn’ as the first single because it’s emblematic of the direction we are taking on our new record. Proggy and atmospheric like our last album, but shorter songs with more streamlined, less indulgent arrangements.”
VEX on the Road:
7/18 – Kiva Lounge in San Marcos, TX with Hinayana & We Deal in Lead
7/19 – Come and Take it Live in Austin, TX with Oceans of Slumber & Hinayana
7/20 – White Oak Music Hall in Houston, TX with Oceans of Slumber & Hinayana
7/21 – Boozer’s in Corpus Christi, TX with Fall & Hinayana
8/17 – Brewtal Bazaar 20 at Independence Brewing Company in Austin, TX
9/7 – Congregation of the Dead Festival at Zombie’s in Amarillo, TX
Formed in West Texas nearly two decades ago, Vex’s unique blend of progressive, melodic black and death metal has been described as, “smashing through the boundaries of what it means to be and play not just death metal, but metal as a whole” (Decibel). The band has released three critically-acclaimed full-length albums, ‘Thanatopsis,’ ‘Memorious,’ and ‘Sky Exile,’ as well as a number of EPs and singles, and has performed/toured internationally with Morbid Angel, Agalloch, Intronaut, Absu, Katatonia, Deicide, Immolation, Goatwhore, and many others.
