Centuries have premiered a video from their second LP, The Lights Of This Earth Are Blinding out now through Southern Lord. Set to the album track “May Love Be With You Always”, the video was filmed and edited by Derrick Flanagin, and uses footage from Germany, Italy, Austria, India, Thailand, Vietnam, and Japan.
In the band’s words, “the video is about human movement and the constant inertia we experience, frequently without taking time to properly reflect on it. Things we see, people we meet, places we go, stories we are told; events that are so fleeting they often don’t become catalogued in our memory and will forever exist only in that moment.”.
Watch the video below and read on for information about their latest album, and upcoming tour dates…

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 is out now through Southern Lord on LP and digital formats via the European label webstore and Bandcamp.
“Fusing elements of dissonant hardcore, d-beat punk, and a knack for walloping tones, the band has taken the last five years and honed the overall sound and writing approach. This latest effort affords a new level of intensity and artistry.” – BLOW THE SCENE
“For what is ostensibly a crust record, Centuries aren’t afraid to experiment with the formula, exploring hidden alleyways to broaden and deepen their pitch darkness. At times delicate, at times destructive, but always sinister, they never truly let you off that emotional butcher’s hook.” – METAL HAMMER
“While they repeatedly deliver the goods when it comes to short-and-not-sweet blasts of Trap Them-esque hatred, they are not rigidly attached to one ferocious sound, and elements of post-metal and sparse acoustic passages add extra gravitas to proceedings…further demonstrating the strengths of a truly thrilling young band.” – KERRANG!
