Australia’s heavy trailblazers Northlane have revealed their daring new single, Echo Chamber, lifted from their forthcoming album, Obsidian, set for release on April 1, 2022 via Believe. To celebrate the release of their sixth album, Northlane will embark on a national tour in June.
A bold expansion of the ever-evolving Northlane sound, Echo Chamber is a fully immersive futuristic Matrix rave built around a compulsive beat that marries their signature bottom-heavy groove with dark electronic and techno. Lyrically, Echo Chamber looks at the toxic polarisation of social media, landing at a timely moment in history with whistleblowers confirming algorithms are deliberately amplifying angry content that is tearing societies apart in the name of engagement. Echo Chamber is a critical reminder to log off.
The release of Obsidian will mark an important milestone for Northlane as the band’s first self-released record. Forging ahead as a wholly independent entity, Northlane have shunned machinations of the music industry to take complete control of their career. They recently took another step forward by launching their WORLDEATERS Patreon with the top tier selling out in just 24 hours.
