Listen Now: Whitechapel’s Adventurous New Song, “Lost Boy”
Whitechapel have delivered on this weekend’s mysterious (not-so-mysterious) tease: new music is here!
A new song called “Lost Boy” has arrived on YouTube. The first half is more or less what you’d expect from Whitechapel — a fast thrasher, fans will be happy — before the song pivots into an atmospheric bridge that features Maynard James Keenan-like cleans from vocalist Phil Bozeman (and accompanying delay-soaked guitar leads, also very Tool-like). From there comes an absolutely scorching guitar solo which leads the song to its close. A very non-standard song structure, and I mean that as a compliment.
Lambgoat says that the band’s next album, Kin, arrives October 29. That’s about all we know at the moment. But I, for one, am VERY intrigued based on this one track! I hope it’s a sign of what the album has in store, because I like it a lot.
