Latest release: "Home"

Release date: Fri, Jul 22 2016, US Fri, Jul 22 2016

Canadian post-black metal shooting stars NUMENOREAN are unleashing the second bewildering song taken from their forthcoming debut album 'Home', which can be pre-ordered here (out July 22nd). The track "Thirst" is now exclusively streaming via Stereogum here. Continue reading for a quote by the band & tourdates!

Regarding the new song, NUMENOREAN bassist Rhys Friesen comments: "Proceeding from the first track 'Home', we explore deeper into a more cognizant existentialism. As we gain knowledge in life that dreadful awareness tightens. 'Thirst' deals with the loss of stability one experiences when the promises of tired religions and philosophies fail to provide any real comfort. As knowledge and logic chisel away at superstition and faith, the promises made to us as children rot and fester in our minds. Once again as a child wandering through the chaos of one's own mind. This spiritual vertigo can result either in complete mental collapse or the first courageous step into the abyss."

NUMENOREAN have previously revealed artwork and track-list of 'Home', which can both be viewed below.
