Elder will release their new album Omens on April 24. The album acts as a proper follow-up to their 2017 album Reflections of a Floating World, and more experimental 2019 EP The Gold & Silver Sessions.
Here's what vocalist and guitarist Nick DiSalvo had to say about the album.
“To me, Omens is our most complete work to date: a set of songs that express the breadth of the band's collective influences. After recording The Gold & Silver Sessions EP, it felt like we fully scratched the itch to explore our minimalist side, taking a step back from the proggy song structures and heavy guitar work of our previous records and just letting the music drift along. When beginning to work on Omens, the goal was to integrate these two tendencies in the band – to make a modern day progressive rock record, but also to take time to jam and float when need be. Most importantly, I feel the spirit of adventure in our music is alive and well, and we missed no opportunity to bring in a whole new arsenal of sounds to the record.”
Omens will run 54 minutes, was produced by Peter Deimel (Anna Calvi, The Kills, The Wedding Present), recorded at Studio Black Box in Noyant-La-Gravoyêre, and mixed by Deimel and DiSalvo.
Elder will also tour with Bask this May.
