Wings Denied is now streaming their new single "Plastic Tears." The song explores themes of attempting to save someone who refuses to save themselves, set atop some very groovy and Tesseract-eqsque progressive metal.
"As the world changed with the COVID pandemic, we found ourselves asking “what kind of band do we truly want to be?'" said guitarist Zach Dresher about the single.
"We realized that to us, progressive music isn’t about just playing atypical scales as quickly as possible, or trying to jam a million time signatures or key changes into a song. Progress comes from truly opening ourselves up to a variety of styles and influences, and providing our honest interpretation of each, reflecting who we are in the world now, not what we started as ten years ago. All of our new music to be released follows this ideology, with 9 songs in 9 different styles, each the different emotions and life experiences that shape us both as individuals, and as a band.”
"Plastic Tears" was produced by Joel Hamilton, known for his Grammy-nominated work with artists like Highly Suspect, Bonobo and others. Wings Denied is also one of the many excellent bands playing the UK Tech Fest happening later this month. Check that out here!
