Scale the Summit Debut New Song Featuring Spiritbox’s Courtney LaPlante
I know Vince already made a big to-do about the LED lights on Chris Letchford’s new guitar, but seriously… that shit is a) amazing and b) insanely distracting. Like, to listen to the new Scale the Summit song properly, I had to hit play on the video but then open another tab and not actually watch the clip — otherwise I couldn’t concentrate on the music at all. I’m just totally hypnotized by those lights and baffled that Kiss didn’t already do this in the ’70s.
ANYWAY, the aforementioned new Scale the Summit song is called “The Land of Nod,” and it features vocals by Spiritbox singer Courtney LaPlante. It’s a shreddy, proggy, djenty, relatively easy-going jam… in other words, it’s a Scale the Summit song.
Huh. Guess I didn’t really need to close that tab after all.
ANYWAY, you can check out the track via the below music video. Scale the Summit’s new album Subjects comes out on June 25; pre-order here. It will feature a bevy of guest vocalists including Ross Jennings (Haken), Eric Emery (Skyharbor), Mike Semesky (Raunchy), Joseph Secchiaroli (The Reign of Kindo), Eli Cutting, Garrett Garfield, and Renny Carroll, as well as guest guitar solos from Andy James (Five Finger Death Punch) and Brandon Ewing (Eternity Forever) and a flute solo from Tommy Graven.
And, hey, if the album doesn’t do well and Letchford has to open a falafel cart to make ends meet, he already has the sign ready to go!
