Skyharbor Premieres New Music Video For “Chemical Hands” – Set For European Tour With Sithu Aye & Modern Day Babylon

Skyharbor premieres a new music video for “Chemical Hands”. Says guitarist Keshav Dhar of the track and clip: “‘Chemical Hands‘ is possibly the boldest, most experimental song we have written to date. After releasing two fairly straightforward singles, we felt it was time to let rip and showcase the more bizarre and angry side of the upcoming new record. Michael Di Lonardo has created an absolutely stunning video for the song, perfectly representing the lyrical theme while being ambiguous enough for fans to pick their brains and stroke their goatees over. We’re stoked, and we hope our fans will be too.”

Edensong Streaming New Song “The Atman Apocalypse”

As “Years In The Garden Of Years,” the second full-length from NYC-based progressive ensemble Edensong, nears release through Laser’s Edge at the end of the month, a new single from the record has been issued.

Check out “The Atman Apocalypse” below, which features a brief guest appearance by Adrian Belew (King Crimson, Frank Zappa, David Bowie, Talking Heads, etc.)

Considered by the members of Edensong to be “the craziest thing they’ve ever written,” the mammoth track consumes over ten minutes, delivering some of the most bombastic elements of the entire album.

The band offers, “‘The Atman Apocalypse’ is a cornerstone track on ‘Years In The Garden Of Years’ and the climax of the song-cycle that makes up most of the album. It takes so many of the musical themes from across the record and fuses them into the most brutal and ‘proggy’ thing we’ve probably ever written.

“It’s actually based on a string quartet that Tony (our drummer) wrote a few years back, which Edensong then spun out into an epic rock tune. It’s even got a cameo from Adrian Belew, by way of a chance encounter. We always jokingly imagined Adrian’s voice in this particular moment of the song, so it’s pretty awesome (and hilarious) that it’s actually there. Listen carefully or you’ll miss it.”
