CARCER CITY + ALTERNATIVE PRESS REVEAL “SOVEREIGN” SONG + VIDEO
NEW ALBUM INFINITE/UNKNOWN OUT SEPTEMBER 16 VIA STAY SICK RECORDINGS
FRONTMAN PATRICK PINION TALKS TO AP ABOUT HOW HIS SYNESTHESIA INFLUENCED THE ALBUM
UK sensation Carcer City will release their new album Infinite/Unknown via Stay Sick Recordings on September 16. The band and Alternative Press have revealed the video for the new song “Sovereign.” Watch the video here.
Additionally, vocalist Patrick Pinion spoke to AP about how his synesthesia, which is a neurological phenomena that allows him to see music in color, factored into the writing and recording of the new album.
“‘Sovereign’ is about the inevitability of death that will come to all of life as we know it and the problem that presents to us as mortals,” said Pinion. “How do we find meaning in a meaningless existence? Why do we get so caught up in the ultimately pointless trials and tribulations of everyday life? Why do we see ourselves as so special?”
He continues, “‘Sovereign’ is a song to remind everyone that none of this has any real meaning or structure. It’s a song to remind people that in the face of death only one thing matters — enjoying the ride! Do what makes you happy.”
Carcer City debuted the title track, “Infinite/Unknown,” via Revolver. Check it out here.
The band also shared this album trailer, featuring three minutes of majestic but moshy sonic tidbits from the album and which fully displays the band’s astonishing sense of dynamics.
