After the Burial Release New Song “Lost in the Static”


Following the tragic passing of guitarist Justin Lowe this summer, we all expected that After the Burial would regroup and write new music — eventually. But I don’t think anyone expected it to happen this soon. And right in front of a massive tour they’re about to head out on with The Faceless, too.

Getting back to normal routines can be cathartic and help us process such a grave loss, and I have to imagine that’s part of what’s going on here. Still, good on these guys for getting back to it so quickly! I haven’t had a chance to dig in to the lyrics of “Lost in the Static” yet — perhaps they address this very issue — but the music itself sounds just like you’d hope a ripping new After the Burial track would.

No word on whether there will be a full album to follow or if this is just a one-off release, but the track will be available for purchase starting on November 13th. Get tour dates with The Faceless, Rings of Saturn and Toothgrinder here. Also no word on who will be taking Lowe’s place in the band, if anyone.
