Leeds based Humanfly hit the road today in support of Cult of Luna along with Amenra.
Dates and ticket links etc can be found on their metalgigs page here.
The band have a new album “Awesome Science” due out on 11th February on Brew Records.
2010’s ‘Darker Later’ was highly praised by the likes of Metal Hammer, Classic Rock, The Quietus and Terrorizer for its monumentally crushing riffs and immensely dark atmospherics. So much so that Dan Carter’s ears sharply pricked up and he brought them down to Maida Vale to record a live session for his BBC Rock Show.
Humanfly’s previous 3 albums saw them gradually edge away from their original fast, hardcore, DIY punk sound through to post-metal, now taking them to their current form which in the case of new album ‘Awesome Science’ is a massive prog beast.
There’s been a shift in dynamics which may come as a surprise to many who were used to the ‘quiet > loud > even louder’ formula that worked so well. ‘Awesome Science’ is very much and in every sense, shape and form a prog album.
The first preview track has been released and you can check it out below. We caught the band at last years Damnation preshow in Leeds and the new songs are epic. Long full on psych style prog jams that take you on a trip, the new album should be something very special…
