MORGAN RIDER (Vesperia) & THE DEEP DARK RIVER Release New Single ‘The Seafaerers’ Off Upcoming Album

Canada’s Morgan Rider & The Deep Dark River are announcing their new album and the second installment in The Deep Dark River quadrilogy saga – “Leviathan and The Deep Dark Blue”.

The first chapter “King of The Forest” (North Soul Records) this past June and now “Leviathan and The Deep Dark Blue” (North Soul Records) is ready to be experienced by listeners this coming November 22nd. The first single is The Seafaerers’, which also comes in an acoustic version on the album.

Melodic, dreamy and folky, ‘The Seafaerers’ tells the story of the Ocean God and his desire and attempts to destroy the shore dwellers, who in turn take up arms and set forth to claim the ocean as their own. An excellent excerpt from the story the whole album will detail, the single can be heard via its exclusive premiere on Bravewords at the following link HERE.

Morgan Rider and The Deep Dark River combine all the humble qualities of blues, folk and classical into a well-balanced, artfully crafted musical reflection on life, hope and old-fashioned storytelling while delivering a uniquely fresh and uplifting listening experience.
