Elder to Release New Album, “Omens”, This Spring

Progressive band Elder will release their highly anticipated new album, Omens, April 24th via Armageddon Shop. The band has also booked an extensive headline tour this spring, with direct support to come from Bask. New music and pre-order information are soon to follow. The five-song, 54-minute album is a concept album that mimics the lifespan of a civilization, and also reads as a commentary on our own society hell-bent on profitability at the expense of our own lives and environment. Omens was produced by Peter Deimel (Anna Calvi, The Kills, The Wedding Present) and recorded at Studio Black Box in Noyant-La-Gravoyêre, France. Deimel and guitarist Nick DiSalvo mixed the collection.

Singer/guitar player Nick DiSalvo commented:

To me, Omens is our most complete work to date: a set of songs that express the breadth of the band’s collective influences. After recording The Gold & Silver Sessions EP, it felt like we fully scratched the itch to explore our minimalist side, taking a step back from the proggy song structures and heavy guitar work of our previous records and just letting the music drift along. When beginning to work on Omens, the goal was to integrate these two tendencies in the band – to make a modern-day progressive rock record, but also to take time to jam and float when need be. Most importantly, I feel the spirit of adventure in our music is alive and well, and we missed no opportunity to bring in a whole new arsenal of sounds to the record.”
