Earthless, the San Diego-based trio whose latest release, From The Ages, was included in multiple best of year end lists including Rolling Stone and Magnet magazines, return with their new full-length album Black Heaven on March 16 via Nuclear Blast Entertainment.
The band are giving fans an early preview of the six-track, forty-minute long album, with a stream of the first song on the album.You can listen to ‘Gifted by the Wind’ below
“We are proud to drop the first single ‘Gifted by the Wind’ today”, says drummer Mario Rubalcaba. “Something that moves, grooves and wants to shake your brains! We hope you enjoy and of course blast the ‘F’ out of it.” The song, which kicks off the album, marks a shift for the band, with four of the six songs featuring vocals whereas earlier albums only occasionally had vocals. “It wasn’t a premeditated thing to do a record with vocals”,continues Rubalcaba. “On the older records, Mike [Eginton] was responsible for a lot of the riffs that would start these jams, but on this one Isaiah [Mitchell] really brought his own pizazz and flavour to it. I’d say that’s one of the major differences on this album: It has more of Isaiah’s input. He took a risk bringing these ideas to us, not knowing if we’d like them. But as with everything we’ve done in the past, it felt very organic and natural.”
