Instrumental post-metal quartet TELEPATHY have released the video for their single 'Pariah', taken from their anticipated third full-length record, Burn Embrace, due 27th March via Svart Records.
The band comment: "We’re very happy to share ‘Pariah’ as the first taste of our new album Burn Embrace. Feeling like an outsider looking in is something that everyone goes through at some point in life and this became a recurring theme whilst being holed up in the middle of nowhere during the whole writing process for Burn Embrace,” says the band. “It’s also a metaphor for the way we see ourselves as a band. It’s always been tough to pigeonhole us, and whilst sometimes that has felt like a curse, it’s ultimately what we consider our greatest strength.
“‘Pariah’ tells the story of a person who has given up the comforts of a traditional life, and lost their connection to the modern world,” they add. “Haunted by the memory of those they left behind, the character contemplates on the struggle of not being accepted in the eyes of society.
“The video was made in various locations around the UK by our own Piotr and Albert Turek, with help from our former bassist Krystian.”
TELEPATHY formed in 2012, the product of three Polish brothers (Piotr, Albert, and Krystian Turek) and one English guitarist (Richard Powley), later joined by bassist Teddy James Driscoll. The quintet's second and most recent LP, Tempest (Spring 2017) was released to rave reviews globally, including Metal Hammer, Kerrang!, The Quietus, Visions, Metal Hammer DE, and more.
TELEPATHY played over 125 shows in support of Tempest over eight tours, and performed at acclaimed festivals, including Roadburn, ArcTanGent, Desertfest London, and more. Support tours with Solstafir and Saint Vitus have the newer quintet marked as one of the most revered and talked-about groups in the instrumental post-metal scene.
Burn Embrace will look to carry this legacy and then some - a scintillating mix of sludge, post-black, doom, and blackened metal from a band fully worthy of their praise.
