Harm's Way announce Feb 9th release of 'Posthuman'
With producer Putney overseeing the tracking at Graphic Nature Audio in Belleville, New Jersey, Posthuman came together easily and fluidly. Having three weeks to track it - the longest they have ever spent on a single full-length - was definitely beneficial. "We spent the first three days there doing pre-production and refining the songs to be the best possible versions of themselves," says Mills. "The amount of time we had in creating this record meant we were able to experiment and not have to rush with any aspect of it, and I feel it shows in the end product." The title, Posthuman, aptly summarizes the themes of the record, reflecting a sense of not feeling like a part of the world anymore, whether that be politically, socially, ethically, or emotionally. "It very much pulls from ideas of transcendence, progression, and resilience", Mills elaborates, "and it's very much a push back on traditional ideas of the self and self-actualization. 'Posthuman' to us is about progressing above and beyond the confines of what is considered human, in the physical, psychological, and categorical sense."
