Latitudes premiere first track ‘Moorland Is the Sea’ from upcoming album ‘Part Island’7th February 2019 0 By John Deaux
On their fourth album ‘Part Island’ the UK atmospheric metal band Latitudes weave emotive metallic power and dream-state vulnerability – summoning a new level of melodicism through cast-iron, heartfelt songcraft.
Foregrounding vocals on every album track for the first time in the band’s 12 years, ‘Part Island’ is a dynamic collection unashamedly brim-filled with sadness and regret. Helmed by a performance of sheer naked honesty from vocalist Adam Symonds, the record incorporates acoustic guitar, piano and analogue synth within flowing volleys of melodic black metal, weighty contemplative doom and the wide-ranging wistfulness of indie, folk and shoegaze songwriting.
Produced by Chris Fielding (CONAN) at Skyhammer Studio, mastered by Audiosiege (CONVERGE) and featuring artwork by the in-demand Dehn Sora (BLUT AUS NORD), ‘Part Island’ weaves emotive songs throughout the record.
Political and personal, concerned with the mysteries of love and islands literal and self-created, this is an album about dissolution, leaving, reaching an end without ever truly knowing why.
‘Part Island’ is released 5th April 2019 via Debemur Morti Productions.
