UNTIL RAIN: Greek Prog/Alt Metal Outfit Releases Video/Single
Thessaloniki, Greece-based alternative/progressive metal act, UNTIL RAIN, has released the first single for their Sensory Records-bound Inure LP, issuing the track “Because Something Might Happen” through all major digital platforms, as well as through an official video for the song.
Running over nine minutes in length, the wide spectrum of textures and stylistic approaches captured on UNTIL RAIN’s exploratory new album are explosively displayed on the extensive new track. Boasting a storyline and visual conveyance as intense as the song itself, the video for “Because Something Might Happen” was directed and filmed by Charlene Mercedes, with post-production by Tolis Karoulas, and features special guest Venetia Psomiadou.
The members of UNTIL RAIN issue with the single, “Excited to release our first video taken from our upcoming release, Inure. This video represents everything this album deals with and shows the bright and the dark side of the human mind.”
With Inure, UNTIL RAIN’s first album since 2013’s well-received Anthem To Creation finds them exploring the dark world of psychological/emotional abuse, loss, and doubt and it presents the darkest side of the band thus far. Inure was recorded by UNTIL RAIN in various European cities, including Thessaloniki, London, Gothenburg, and Lausanne, and mixed/mastered by Daniel Cardoso of Anathema in Lisbon, Portugal (Anneke Van Giersbergen, Anathema, Head Control System). The album features beautiful artwork by the new Greek artist/designer Nassia Kefala, and a hand-drawn cover that completely represents the concept of the album and the duality of many inured people; appearing lush on the outside, yet they are rotted inside. With nine massive tracks, Inure presents an hour-long journey that you will want to take again and again, the digital release bearing an additional bonus track as well.
UNTIL RAIN has booked two European tours tied directly into the release of Inure. First up is a split co-headlining tour with Sensory labelmates Wolverine and Oddland, with shows in the UK, France, Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, and Sweden from April 26th through May 6th. Directly behind the trek, UNTIL RAIN will co-headline with Poem through the Balkan countries May 11th through 14th, with shows in Bulgaria, Romania, Serbia, and the final gig in their native Greece.
Additional audio/video samples from the album, additional tour dates, and more will be released in the days ahead.
