CANDIRIA PREMIERE TITLE TRACK FROM WHILE THEY WERE SLEEPING AT BROOKLYN VEGAN/INVISIBLE ORANGES
NOVEMBER TOUR PLANS REVEALED
Brooklyn shapeshifters Candiria, who are known for fusing metal, jazz, hip-hop, and more in a truly unique hybrid style, have premiered the title track from their new album While They Were Sleeping, out October 7 through Metal Blade Records.
The song/video debuted at Brooklyn Vegan/Invisible Oranges. Listen and watch here and here.
The clip doubles as a playthrough of the song and was recorded at Spaceman Sound.
“We are very excited to release a playthrough video for the title track off of our new album,” said guitarist John LaMacchia. “It is the first time we have ever done a playthrough video that features the full band. Video director Steve Perlmutter did a fantastic job capturing the right mood and energy that matches the overall tone of the song.”
While They Were Sleeping is a concept album conceived by the band’s lead vocalist Carley Coma. It tells the tale of a failed musician who rises up against a monarchy in New York City.
The album is now available for preorder. Previously, the band revealed the new song “Mereya,” which is currently available as an instant grat track. Listen to “Mereya,” which Metal Sucks described as “one of those songs where you can’t really predict where it’s going… but where it’s going is always awesome,” here.
While They Were Sleeping will be available in CD and limited edition colored vinyl. The vinyl will be available in two marble color options, with only 250 copies printed in the U.S. for each option. Option #1, “The Wounded Heart,” will be available along with the album preorder. Option #2, “The Veil,” will be available at select retail outlets. Limited supplies of both options will also be available at select upcoming Candiria shows.
To celebrate the release of the much-anticipated album, Candiria will embark on the NYC Five-Borough “World Tour,” playing shows in intimate venues in each of the city’s five boroughs during the week of release. Limited edition posters will be made for all of NYC Five-Borough “World Tour” shows. Each poster will be available only at the corresponding show. Tickets to the 5 Borough shows can be purchased here.
The band has also confirmed a fall tour, which will take place in November and go on sale on Friday, September 30. Dalek will serve as direct support. Those dates are also below.
