Renowned for their attention to detail when laying down new musical compositions, twin brothers Paul and Andrew Haug are set to return with the brand new Contrive album, Slow Dissolve
However the detail, this record hasn’t been without tragedy, with the sudden passing of their beloved father, Paul and Andrew were at a loss with their purpose. Retreating from the world, Contrive was the furthest thought in their minds.
Eventually emerging from the fog, their purpose became clear. To finish writing their new album and take it to the world. It was the best way to honour their best friend, their father.
Andrew Haug comments; “We were halfway through the writing/recording process of this album back in 2015 when tragedy struck. 
Paul & I didn’t even think we’d continue doing this, it was a very trying time for us both! But as most families do, we stuck together & dug deep using Dad’s encouraging words over the years of finding your passion and taking it to its very limits.  We believe that emotion & passion has been captured on this record, no doubt.!
Contrive have had a very prolific career, sharing stages with the likes of Opeth, Stone Sour, Sepultura, Soilwork, Machine Head, Testament, Cavalera Conspiracy, Coroner and more.
They have had their previous albums shaped by the hands of Devin Townsend and Fredrik Nordstrom. Internationally they opened for Parkway Drive in Bangkok and were the first Australian band to ever play in Vietnam, resulting in them selling out the 800 seat Hard Rock Cafe in Ho Chi Minh City.
Slow Dissolve was produced by Paul and Andrew Haug and mixed by Mike and Dave Young of Young Bros. Productions in Vancouver Canada B.C. Dave is also the guitarist for the Devin Townsend Project.
It will be available as a Limited Edition Digi CD & via Digital Download
Pre orders begin on Friday, August 4.
All pre-orders receive the first single, “Connect-Dead” as an instant-grat download.
The music video for Connect-Dead will be released very soon!
