New Video “Web Of Lies” From Halcyon Way To Debut At ProgPower USA Festival, New LP Title Revealed

Atlanta’s Halcyon Way are currently in the final stages of mixing for their new album “Conquer.” The band recently completed work on a music video for the new song “Web Of Lies,” which will be premiered exclusively at the upcoming ProgPower USA festival in Atlanta next week on Saturday September 27th at 7:45 PM.

Halcyon Way will then hit the road this September and October along with Fozzy in support of the legenday Saxon’s North American “Sacrifice” tour. The tour kicks off September 12th in Patchouge, NY and runs through October 19th in Vancouver, BC. A complete list of dates can be found at this location or in the poster below.

Guitarist Jon Bodan gave some insight on the new album:

“Thanks to the support of the many fans that contributed to our IndieGoGo campaign, we are in the final stages of editing our first ‘proper’ music video, for a track called “Web Of Lies” off our upcoming new record. The video is coming out amazing, and the song is killer – it’s heavy, technical yet accessible, and it has the giant hook that defines the HW sound.

“We’re naming the new album “Conquer” as a result of the adversity that we have faced as a band since we released our last couple of albums. We’ve been through many ups and downs over the last few years, and they would have destroyed many other bands. We’ve overcome life-threatening illnesses, lineup changes, and all sorts of gutpunches, but we persevere. We are extremely proud of this new record, and we think that it will help to inspire people going through similar hard times.”

The album was produced by Jon Bodan & Lasse Lammert (Alestorm, Gloryhammer) with additional vocal production by Seth Von Paulus (Linda Perry, Alicia Keys, Crash Kings, Smashing Pumpkins). Art will again be handled by the legendary Travis Smith at Seempieces.

Known for their explosive live shows, instantly catchy melodies, precise vocal harmonies, incendiary guitar work, intricate yet pounding drums, and great showmanship, they dominate the live scene.

Aurally combining the heaviness of bands like Testament, the technical prowess of Dream Theater, the power metallic attitude of Evergrey and soaring vocal melodies, Halcyon Way will leave you awestruck by their punishing riffs and unforgettable hooks.

The band comments, “By suppressing our deepest feelings and by concealing our fears and emotions we mask our inner self. This topic runs like a red thread through our new album. No other title would fit the content better than ‘Opaque.’ The artwork, which was done by Ben Borucki, captures this atmosphere perfectly and creates a symbiosis between the music, the lyrics and the art.”
