Currently in the middle of recording their “darkest and most honest record to date”, Aussie progressive metalcore band Northlane are gearing up for a big 2019. To tide fans over until their new album drops, they’ve released a deluxe edition of their 2017 album Mesmer, which includes 11 instrumental tracks from that record, too. Essentially, it’s Mesmer in a way you’ve never heard it before.
Also being teased in the studio is the band’s previously-performed song, “Talking Heads”. Of particular note is that the album is being recorded in the same studio their breakout debut Discoveries was, which is neat for old-school fans of the band. Needless to say, we’re pretty excited to see (and hear) where the band’s sonic evolution goes next.
