My first thought upon hearing the new WAIT (We Are In Transit) single is that it sounds like it belongs in the era of stuff like Sikth and FellSilent. Which is awesome, considering those sounds seem to have disappeared over the years and never quite got done right again – until now.
"The End of Noise is a synonym for the stillness of the mind when one is either in a deep meditative state, asleep, or dead," said the band about their coming record. "'Noise' refers to the mental static one hears and feels resulting from a neverending barrage of stimuli. In the process of writing The End of Noise, Charlie turned 30, and the typical existential crisis that occurs at that stage in life influenced the dramatic nature of the writing and lyrical content. While the previous EP could be described as esoteric and under-the-skin deep, The End of Noise aims to conceptually drill to the very core of the Earth."
The End of Noise is out February 11. Pre-orders are available here.
