Toronto, Canada’s SARIN are today premiering their forthcoming new album, You Can’t Go Back,via Exclaim. Listen here, ahead of it’s worldwide release tomorrow.
Recorded at The Sugar Shack in London, Ontario by Simon Larochette and later mastered by James Plotkin, You Can’t Go Back captures SARIN‘s crushing post-metal at its dynamic best. The emotionally charged origins of the album’s lyrical themes lend themselves to the tonally dense and memorable song structures that build tension throughout, balancing crushing intensity with fleetingly gentle passages, that reveal the therapeutic nature of the record.
You Can’t Go Back is due for worldwide release on February 5, via Prosthetic Records; pre-orders are available here.
Speaking on You Can’t Go Back‘s release, the band comments: “We’re thrilled to finally share the joy that this record brings us with other people. These songs are the most energetic and urgent we’ve ever recorded, and I don’t think we’ve ever sounded as much like ourselves as we do on this album. It was born in a period of great change and uncertainty, and it’s fitting that it’s being released in one now too. Playing these songs together is immensely important to us, and we hope we can bring them to new ears someday soon.”
Although You Can’t Go Back is imbued with enough silver linings to make the album an inspirational listen, the process of change – and all its agonising facets – is never far from view. The six tracks that make up this emotionally charged missive are both introspective and celebratory; the perfect album to introduce SARIN’s euphoric post-metal to a wider audience, and truly put them on the heavy music map.
