ONI Reveals Colossal New Single ‘Aura’ Featuring Howard Jones and Josh Gilbert

24th August 2023 0 By John Deaux

Breakout modern metalcore project, ONI has announced a new studio album, The Silver Line, set for release on October 13th via Ironshore Records.


The Silver Line is the third full-length album issued under the ONI banner, and is the most focused, cohesive and dynamic work of powerhouse frontman Jake Oni’s burgeoning career to date.


Alongside the album news, ONI has unveiled a brand new track, ‘Aura,’ featuring Howard Jones (Light The Torch, ex-Killswitch Engage) and Josh Gilbert (Spiritbox, ex-As I Lay Dying).


ONI frontman and visionary Jake Oni explains,


‘Aura’ is a collaboration between friends. It’s always great to work with Howard and Josh. It feels like this song was made a lifetime ago, so I’m stoked for everyone to hear it.”


In recent months, ONI has released two other tracks, ‘Silence In A Room Of Lies’ (feat. Jared Dines) and ‘Underneath My Skin’ (feat. Kellin Quinn), both of which feature on The Silver Line. Along with ‘Aura’, the tracks showcase the range and breadth of ONI‘s ever expanding appeal.


Produced, mixed, and mastered by the duo of Spiritbox bassist, Josh Gilbert and Joe McQueen (As I Lay Dying, Light The Torch, Bad Wolves), The Silver Line is as ambitious as it is catchy and incisive.


Discussing the upcoming release, Jake elaborates:


This album is different completely from anything I’ve done before. It’s the new direction for ONI sonically, with Josh Gilbert and me at the helm writing and Joe McQueen mixing and getting the best vocal takes from me. It’s banger after banger, from heavy tracks like ‘Cyanide’ through to melodic, uplifting songs like ‘Aura’, this album will have something for everyone to enjoy!”

9.Burns My SoulAbout ONI:
Formed in 2014 by vocalist Jake Oni, ONI quickly became one of Canada’s most promising artists with their distinct amalgam of experimental progressive songwriting, brute metalcore savagery and cathartic melody. The five-piece roared to life with the release of their 2016 debut album, Ironshore (Metal Blade Records), which was produced by Josh Wilbur (Avenged Sevenfold, Korn, Dillinger Escape Plan) and featured guest vocals by Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe on the song, The Only Cure.’

ONI followed up with a monstrous Alone EP in 2019, and returned with their critically lauded second full-length, Loathing Light in 2022, which boasted guests Iggy Pop and Blythe on the song Secrets and ‘Heart To Stone,‘ which was featured on Spotify’s Best of Kickass Metal 2022 playlist.
Along with their rise in the metal scene, ONI has shared the stage with acts like Megadeth, Gojira, Bullet for My Valentine, Starset, Children of Bodom, Rob Zombie, Death Angel and The Devin Townsend Project.
2023 is already looking to be ONI‘s biggest and most pivotal year yet. The lead single, ‘Silence In A Room Of Lies‘ has been added to dozens of stations across the USA, including Music Choice Rock, KUPD, KJEE, WEDG, WDHA, KXCI among many others.
