Politically charged mathcore band FERO LUX will release their sophomore album No Rest on March 25th, but the group is giving you chance to hear it early via SoundCloud. The south Florida quartet has also released a defiant new music video for the first single “No Insignia”.
“This album most accurately represents this band in my opinion,” says guitarist David Paul. “Our politics and social issues are embodied in this album’s music and lyrics. It portrays our passion for music, compassion for the world, and disdain for oligarchy and greed.“
The methodical 12 songs on No Rest blend together through extensive riffing and technical time signatures that stick to the band’s mathcore roots. “It’s far heavier, but more organized than anything we’ve put out,” says bassist Ben Perman. “We really put a lot of focus into composition. Our message is important, but the delivery had to be right.“
No Rest was engineered at Iceman Studios in West Palm Beach Florida by Daniel Colombo and produced by the band themselves. Stream the full album here and pre-order your copy on Bandcamp before it comes out on Friday via Iron Young Records.
About Fero Lux:
Hailing from south Florida, one of this United States’ hotbeds of political unrest, FERO LUX strives with every show, every album, every song and every sentence to be a voice of consciousness. Often reminiscent of The Dillinger Escape Plan, Botch and Glassjaw, FERO LUX uses their unique blend of melodic hardcore and technical metal to send scathing waves of outraged fury into the heads and hearts of listeners. These ferocious riffs poised against heartfelt refrain create a frantic listening experience.
From “Blue” off their 2010 debut Vaos, that decries the horror of modern day racism, to “The Wires That Hang”, a song scheduled for release on their upcoming full-length that calls us to arms against police brutality, FERO LUX gives their fans much more than music. They give their listeners a message. We have cause for alarm. We have work to do. We have a world that desperately needs change. We are pariahs and activists. We are lonely and paranoid.
