Share This:

Naarm/Melbourne-based metal quintet Future Static is thrilled to unveil its highly anticipated full-length debut album, Liminality, out November 24, 2023, via Wild Thing Records. Alongside Liminality, the band has revealed the emotionally charged, hard hitting anthem Roach Queen, and its accompanying eye-catching music video, taken from the forthcoming record.

Roach Queen weaves together bouncing, pitch-shifted riffs, pummelling breakdowns, reverb-drenched ambiance, and an anthemic, catharsis-imbued chorus into a tapestry of grotesque brilliance. At the center of it all is Amariah’s versatile performance that spans ominous spoken word, guttural roars, tortured shrieks, and soaring sung hooks. The impact of Amariah’s contributions here is elevated further considering the fact that the track derives its meaning and lyrics from a repressed episode in the vocalist’s youth.

‘Roach Queen’ talks about a traumatic experience I had as a child in the first apartment my family and I lived in when we moved to Barcelona”, Amariah recalls. “The place was infested by cockroaches, and for a long while, I was having nightmares where they would climb into my mouth while I slept, possibly causing a more severe illness to materialise at the time.”
