Centuries announce their second LP, The Lights Of This Earth Are Blinding, due for release on the 12th of January 2018 via Southern Lord Recordings. About the new album the band remark…”The Lights Of This Earth Are Blinding is a dark album that carries a theme of constant self-doubt. It follows how we choose to accept our loses and the reaction to life, as well as the journey we take to make peace with the demons we’ve made.” The new track “Bygones” is now streaming early, as the band begins to book live shows for next year, take a listen below…
LISTEN TO NEW CENTURIES SONG “BYGONES”
Formed in 2008 in South Florida, Centuries current lineup now includes members based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and Nashville, Tennessee, and in the UK from Manchester. Since their 2013 debut Taedium Vitae (Southern Lord), the group have refined their sound into something more focused, and intense, and The Lights Of This Earth Are Blinding surges with ten new tracks of the band’s harrowing, metallic, punk/crust-influenced hardcore, delivered with a calculated, very deliberate approach.
The album was recorded in February 2017 by Kris Hilbert at Legitimate Business (Catharsis, Torch Runner, The Body), mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Integrity, Black Breath, Halshug), and completed with artwork by Phil Trona.
Centuries will be returning to Europe for the fourth time in Spring 2018, leading with the band’s appearance at We Built the World And Miss The Stars Fest V in Berlin, Germany in May. Full details of their live shows to follow.
