Calgary-based post-black metal outfit NUMENOREAN have announced the title and release date of their highly anticipated new album, ‘Home’. ‘Home’ will be released worldwide by Season of Mist on July 22. Pre-orders for the album are available across multiple formats at the Season of Mist E-Shop. The track list and cover art for ‘Home’ (NSFW, violent themes) can be found below.
NUMENOREAN are streaming the first new track taken from ‘Home’. The album’s title track is streaming now at Decibel Magazine, accompanied by an interview with the band detailing the album’s concept.
Regarding the album, NUMENOREAN comment:
“The title track ‘Home’, along with most of the album, sounds like the darkest and most heart wrenching parts of Lifelover, Deafheaven and Hypothermia, mixed with the progressive atmospheric metal of Enslaved and Agalloch. All of this thrown into a melting pot with complete vocal vulnerability has created something we never thought possible. This title track is a very essential starting point and glimpse into the entirety of emotional ups and downs this album has to offer over the course of its 44 minute journey into the abyss.”
NUMENOREAN have announced the first set of live dates for the band this year. These include a string of shows in Alberta and British Columbia during mid May, June and July, and include a Sled Island festival appearance where the band will play alongside DEAFHEAVEN. A full list of confirmed tour dates can be found below.
NUMENOREAN was founded by Brandon and Byron Lemley in Canada’s most northern major city, Calgary. The brothers released a two song demo under the title ‘Demo 2014’, and created waves among the northern underground scene. Following a strong reception for the demo release, NUMENOREAN finalized a live lineup and has performed at Canada’s Sled Island Festival in 2015, where the band shared the stage with DRIVE LIKE JEHU, GODSPEED YOU! BLACK EMPEROR, and SUMAC.
