Spirit Adrift Announce New EP, Stream Title Track
Spirit Adrift — one of the best trad metal bands out there right now IMO — have announced that they’re gonna release a twenty-minute, three-song E.P., Forge Your Future, on August 27 via Century Media.
They’ve also released the title track, which is a characteristically bittersweet, druggy, catchy-as-hell hard rock tune. It also has a super-rad ’70s arena rock-style guitar solo which I could listen to on repeat for, conservatively, five days.
Spirit Adrift guitarist/vocalist Nate Garrett says of impending EP:
“On March 1, 2020, I relocated to the woods outside of Austin, Texas. Two weeks later, everything was locked down. I turned to the thing that has helped me navigate difficult situations for most of my life: writing music. I wrote and demoed a TON of songs over the course of the pandemic. The songs on this E.P. are the best of the bunch. Marcus, Preston, and I recorded these in March of 2021 at Homewrecker Recording Studio with Ryan Bram at the helm. Zeuss handled mixing and mastering, after lengthy discussions about Martin Birch, Tom Allom, Crowbar, and how important it is to carry forth the essence and spirit of heavy metal. Special thanks to our friend Cody Davis for the brilliant title.
“These songs, and this band, represent persevering through difficult times, staying true to your innermost self, and celebrating the life-affirming power of metal. We can’t wait to see you all live and in the flesh, in the meantime we hope you enjoy the tunes.”
