Northlane will release their new EP Mirror's Edge on April 12, and you can check out the debut single "Miasma" – featuring Winston McCall from Parkway Drive – right now above. It's all the digital djenty goodness you could ever want from Northlane, coupled with McCall's iconic vocals. What's not to love?
"Parkway Drive were always our number one inspiration as a band," said Northlane guitarist Josh Smith. "When we first started, their DVD created a roadmap to success, which we did our best to follow. At a time where every band was ripping their sound off, we chose to take our own path but instead emulate their work ethic, and for us it paid dividends.
"Over time, that respect has flowed both ways. With this track being so heavy, we could'’t think of a more perfect guest than Winston. He flew down from Byron just after we toured together in North America and we tracked his parts in Jon's home studio. His brute voice just tore the track to pieces and we were stunned with the result."
Mirror's Edge was recorded with producer Will Putney (Fit For An Autopsy, Better Lovers, etc.) and features additional guest spots from Ian Kenny (Karnivool, Birds Of Tokyo) ex-Northlane bassist Brendon Padjasek.
"It's like looking at your reflection, looking at the past and everything I've been thinking about, or caught up within the last little while," said Northlane vocalist Marcus Bridge of the EP. "There's not much positivity in these songs, but it is about acceptance. Hopefully, by putting these songs out, I can leave that stuff behind and I can kind of find a new direction and something to be positive about on the other side of this mirror's edge."
