VESTIGE Announce Debut Album With First Single

VESTIGE introduces “Deviens la Nuit”, the first single from their forthcoming debut album, Janis. This piece emerges as a beacon of their journey, a path traversed through the heart’s deepest reveries and the night’s profound silence. It is here, in this confluence of darkness and light, that VESTIGE invites us to stand at the edge of despair and gaze into the possibility of rebirth.

Crafted from the tempests of personal strife, Janis unfolds as a fragment of emotional catharsis. “Deviens la Nuit” epitomizes this voyage – a composition that bleeds raw emotion, bridging the chasm between the ethereal whispers of hope and the visceral cries of the human condition. Théodore Rondeau’s poignant narratives, Pierre-André Krauzer’s resonant bass, Quentin Regnault’s rhythmic alchemy, and Thomas Petit’s haunting guitar melodies, coalesce into a sound that is felt in the marrow.

“Deviens La Nuit catalyzes everything that Vestige represents in a single piece of music.” Says Rondeau. “Between deep melancholy and the violence of realization. It marks the beginning of the journey that is Janis.”

Drawing influences from the likes of Alcest to Deftones, yet bringing their own unique twist of the hallmark Atmospheric Post-Metal sound, VESTIGE‘s Janis promises a musical and emotional journey that seeks not to escape the abyss but to illuminate it. It is an elixir of despair and hope, sadness and solace, meticulously distilled into an 11-track album that leaves you wanting for more.

“The transformation and realization of the condition in which Theodore composed it. Cathartic, gentle, violent but enveloping, we hope that Deviens La Nuit will invite you to experience this introspective journey with us.

– Vestige”

Théodore Rondeau, the creative initiator behind VESTIGE, embarked on a journey of forming the band during a turbulent phase in his life. Emerged as a creative vessel for a complicated emotional journey, the band transcends the boundaries of individual therapy into a collaborative force that hopefully resonates with the feelings that may be all too common for the human experience.

With a profound connection to their craft, VESTIGE pour their souls into their debut album, infusing it with a captivating blend of melancholy, desperation, and catharsis. The music serves not only as an expression of their turmoil, but as a conduit for listeners to navigate the complexities of their own emotions. Through this process, VESTIGE becomes a project with the potential to connect with people on a profound level, forging a collective experience through the universal language of music.

The formation of VESTIGE’s lineup reads like a musical destiny unfolding: Pierre-André Krauzer on the bass, Quentin Regnault on drums, and Théodore on vocals and guitar. They first crossed paths during their tenure in Naraka, a band that shared stages with icons like Cradle of Filth and Alcest. This initial connection laid the groundwork for the formation of the band. Not long after, the addition of Thomas Petit on the second guitar solidified the lineup, bringing a sense of completeness to the ensemble. The band’s sonic identity now established; VESTIGE was ready to share this experience with the world.

The signing with Season of Mist brings the band’s first milestone, allowing VESTIGE to share their journey in the form of their debut album, Janis. Poised for release in late 2024, the album is a culmination of their collective efforts and a statement of the band’s arrival in the heavy music scene. Weaving through atmospheric shoegaze textures, melodic landscapes and intense, tormented moments that reflects the emotional spectrum of the human experience, the band established a foothold into the genre of modern metal.

Beyond the studio, VESTIGE is gearing up for a series of live performance in 2024, setting the stage for an introspective musical experience that brings raw and authentic energy. A cathartic release that pulls in the listener into the emotional depths the band has to bring.
