New Zealanders groove metallers Set On End have signed a deal with Artery Recordings for the worldwide release of their debut full length album, The Dark Beyond, which will be released on 15 July 2016. The album is available for pre-order now via iTunes and Google Play. The band is also trialling something different for their Australian and New Zealand fans, with the album being available on USB format, providing multi-format audio and art media. You can get hold of that HERE.
Forming in Auckland, New Zealand, Set on End released their debut EP, Means to an End in 2009, touring solidly and sharing the stage with a number of international touring acts. The band took a significant break in order to work on their creative direction, returning in 2016 with a new line-up and their first full-length album, The Dark Beyond, an evolution of the band’s heavy, groove-oriented core. You can check out the first single Dissent, below.
The band says: “The album explores humanity’s journey as a species and as individuals, striving for a better world, striving to further our knowledge of who and where we are. Sometimes the path we should take is obvious, and at other times we simply wander into the dark, reaching out for the unknown.”
The Dark Beyond is available on 15 July 2016 via Artery Recordings.
