New Album “In Contact” Detailed By Caligula’s Horse

Caligula’s Horse, a band at the forefront of Australia’s progressive rock scene, has announced the release of the fourth studio album “In Contact,” which is set for release on September 15th via Inside Out Music. A teaser clip is available below.

As with the band’s acclaimed album “Bloom” before it, “In Contact” sees vocalist Jim Grey and lead guitarist Sam Vallen collaborating closely on the music and lyrics. Vallen comments: “In our creative process every idea is scrutinized, deconstructed, and rebuilt in a way that one of us, alone, could never achieve. We’re one another’s harshest critic, but fortunately we’ve done this for long enough now that our inspiration draws us in a similar direction – we can finish each other’s musical sentences, so to speak. And we’re lucky that’s the case, since ‘In Contact’ proved to be a much more ambitious undertaking than anything we’d conceived of in the past.”

Vocalist Jim Grey adds: “‘In Contact’ has been an enormous proposition – the stories told in this album feel deeply personal, and we’ve never been more excited to share a new work with the world. The sounds on this album are dark and adventurous – but without losing the bittersweet and joyful sounds we developed in writing Bloom.”

As with the band’s second album “The Tide, the Thief & River’s End,” the band decided to hang a concept around the entire record, taking it in a direction that would end up being the opposite of its predecessor. “We decided to create a concept album, but one that came from a more personal place: one that would facilitate our creative needs wherever the journey took us” Vallen continues. “The broader concept is based around the nature of art – of what it is that sparks creativity and inspiration, a celebration of what connects us as human beings, the shared space across our many differences.”

Taking in four separate chapters, each one is dedicated to an individual and their own personal journey and how they express themselves through art. “Each of these artists are reaching for something more in their lives, and while disconnected entirely from one another, they are united by that reach: for a better life, but also for something intangible.”

Written between late 2016 and May 2017, “In Contact” went through a rapid production/mixing/mastering process encompassing five weeks between May and June. The music felt fresh and the ideas were captured at the peak of their vitality. The music on ‘In Contact’ stretched all of the bands abilities, from the frantic speed and complexity of “Will’s Song (Let the Colours Run)” to the immense scope and variety of the 16-minute album closer, “Graves.” This is Caligula’s Horse at its most ambitious and progressive.

The full track-listing is as follows:

1. Dream the Dead
2. Will’s Song (Let the Colours Run)
3. The Hands are the Hardest
4. Love Conquers All
5. Songs for No One
6. Capulet
7. Fill My Heart
8. Inertia and the Weapon of the Wall
9. The Cannon’s Mouth
10. Graves

Reissue Of First Two Albums On The Way From Caligula’s Horse

Caligula’s Horse, one of Australia’s most exciting and innovative progressive bands, is set to return to Europe in June 2017 for a string of live dates including support slots with Opeth, Anathema & Pain of Salvation, UK headline shows and festival appearances at Midsummer Prog Festival (Valkenburg, Netherlands) and the Be Prog! My Friend Festival (Barcelona, Spain). To coincide with that, InsideOutMusic will reissue the band’s first two albums “Moments From Ephemeral City” and “The Tide, the Thief & River’s End” on June 16th in both CD and digital download formats.

“Moments From Ephemeral City” was released in 2011, and is the band’s debut album. Originally intended as a solo album by Sam Vallen, it quickly became the start of the story for Caligula’s Horse once vocalist Jim Grey became involved. Recorded entirely by the duo, it presents a vision that is colourful, eclectic and vivid.

“The Tide, the Thief & River’s End” followed in 2013, and was a concept album that explored themes of oppression, exodus, and the inexorable survival of the human spirit. The album saw them perform with the likes of Protest The Hero, Mastodon & Opeth, as well as garnering the attention of current label InsideOutMusic.

Vocalist Jim Grey comments: “We’re thrilled that our first two albums will be far easier to get a hold of around the world now through Inside Out Music. ‘Moments’ and ‘River’s End’ are an integral part of the Caligula’s Horse journey – we learned a lot creating them and though it’s been some years since their release, we’re as proud of them as ever.

“We’re looking forward to sharing fan favorites from our whole back catalogue with our friends in Europe in June!”

River Black Posts New Song “Low”

River Black is now streaming the first brutal track taken from the band’s self-titled debut album, scheduled for release on July 7th, 2017. Check out advance song “Low” in the YouTube player. Vocalist Mike Olender comments on behalf of River Black:

“Our first track out, ‘Low’ is an expression of horror at how religion can become twisted and manipulated by charlatans and demagogues. It was inspired by a news report I heard about a journalist who spent some time with the now-deceased Isis leader ‘Johnny Jihad.’

“It revealed how this man used brutality with the purpose of inspiring others with similarly twisted minds. He used videos of his actions as recruiting tools. I was struck by the thought that there are people out there, who not only wouldn’t be repelled by these horrific videos, but actually excited and inspired by the images of this man gleefully sawing off the heads of the orange-clad victims kneeling before him. Faiths have always had these characters throughout history, but it is surreal to realize we are living in such dark historic times.”
