Speaking of ‘Upheaval’, which the band claim is their heaviest effort to date, guitarist Ryan Jardine comments: “Previously our lyrics had been firmly based on reality but now, with our new vocalist [Dan Lofthouse], we have taken inspiration from works of fiction and combined this with real life experiences.
Musically, we really wanted to expand on everything we’ve done before, to push ourselves further and add more technicality, yet making sure we didn’t lose the all-important groove people know us for. Everyone in the band has been fully involved with the new material. We all have a vast range of influences and it’s just been about bringing this all together.”
