Cinematic prog rock acts Earthside will release their new record Let The Truth Speak on November 17, and is now streaming the title track featuring Tesseract's Daniel Tompkins and vocalist Gennady Tkachenko-Papizh.
"If truth is so important—so hallowed that we hold it as perhaps our most sacred tenet—then why do we go to such great lengths to deny it the moment it makes us uncomfortable or goes against our narrative?" said the band of the new single and album.
"This album almost destroyed our lives and friendships," added keyboardist and co-orchestrator Frank Sacramone confides, "It's insanity, but it is beautiful."
"'A Dream In Static was more of an I album," reflects guitarist and orchestrator Jamie van Dyck, "Each of us in our own way was engaging topics of self-actualization and the fear of never quite becoming. 'Let The Truth Speak', however, turns its focus to the We. Within months of releasing ADIS, the global landscape had changed to where issues of far more consequence than our own individual dreams coming true were tugging at us. We became far more consumed with the trajectory of humanity as a whole than our own legacies therein."
