Prosthetic Records has signed melodic death metal outfit, FIRES IN THE DISTANCE. The Connecticut four-piece will release their debut album, titled Echoes From Deep November, via the label this September. To mark the signing, the band have released a video for their track, The Climb, which was filmed under locked down conditions in recent weeks. Echoes From Deep November is due for release on September 19, and is available to pre-order here.
Of the signing, Prosthetic’s Steve Joh comments:
“Good friend of the label, JR over at Brimminghorn Meadery actually put this band on my radar a little while ago. As soon as I heard them, I loved what they were doing and reached out – the rest is history!”
The band add:
“It is with great pleasure that we announce our signing with Prosthetic Records! They have worked with some of our favorite artists and influences, so it is a sincere honor to be collaborating with them on our first release. We look forward to this new part of our journey as well as getting our new record into your hands this fall.”
FIRES IN THE DISTANCE originally intended to self-release Echoes From Deep November this month – any pre-orders placed directly with the band will be honoured – but the album will now get a full worldwide release via Prosthetic on LP and on all digital outlets, ready for its September release date.
Over the course of six melancholic tracks, Echoes From Deep November charts a perpetual struggle with mental health and the tribulations of living with deep rooted depression. Each track documents peaks and plateaus of inner torment, internal rationalisation and an ongoing struggle to survive. Additionally, personal experiences witnessing pain and struggle in others feeds into the cacophony of anguish and oppression.
Written throughout 2018 and 2019, Echoes From Deep November was recorded with producer Dave Kaminsky (Infera Bruo, Stone Healer), who the band describe as being like a fifth member. Their desire to capture the organic nature of their live sound has paid dividends; each of the six tracks reverberates with energy and emotion. Haunting artwork by Caelen Stokkermans finishes off the pensive package of melodic doom with a macabre flourish.
Echoes From Deep November will be released via Prosthetic Records on September 19.
