Ahead of the release, Kindler have partnered with Ghost Cult Magazine to unveil an official stream of the 11 track masterpiece, which can be heard here.

Echoes and Dust coined the bands’ sound as, “a listen from bow to stern feels like a true journey.”

More Information about Cosmic Revelations:
“While we self-engineered both Cosmic Revelations and our EP, Afterglow, this album comes from a slightly different place than the EP. When we recorded Afterglow, we had a lot of concrete ideas about our music and our identity as a band and the material reflected that certainly. The music on the album, Cosmic Revelations, however, is punctuated by what we can an ‘ominous question mark.’ Things change, life is unpredictable, and very little remains certain, and these themes are present in nearly every song on the album.”
More about the band:
The band toured off the EP and opened for Balance and Composure, The Reign of Kindo, The Virgil Donati Band, and Tides of Man to name a few.
