From Frontiers:

Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the upcoming release of French melodic metal band Devoid's second album, "Lonely Eye Movement" on October 15, 2021.

"The music was written with Jorris Guilbaud and me and Carsten [Schulz] wrote the lyrics. It's a song about the horror of dealing with depression, trying to make your way through every single day. It doesn't matter at all what others might tell you about what or who you are, the struggle never stops. We wanted to give a melancholic atmosphere to these songs, but we wanted to leave hope at the end," says guitarist Shad Mae of the album's title track.

Of the album's overall sound, Shad continues, "the idea was to achieve the perfect mix between my heaviest influences (Evergrey, Devin Townsend, Soilwork, etc.) and AOR bands I like (Winger, White Heart, Giant, Strangeways, etc.) and to produce an album which is very catchy and timeless."

Devoid's second album overall, “Lonely Eye Movement” is a huge step forward for the band and the perfect vehicle to introduce them to a larger international audience. Coming four years after their debut album, “Cup of Tears”, musically, the band develops the melodic and slightly progressive sound of the debut and makes "Lonely Eye Movement" perfectly suited for fans of hard hitting, but very melodic metal.

Devoid is the brainchild of French guitarist extraordinaire Shad Mae. Combining technical finesse and outstanding arrangements with extremely memorable choruses and hooks, Devoid is rounded out by powerhouse German vocalist Carsten 'Lizard' Schulz (Evidence One, Book of Reflections), guitarist Gwen Kerjan, keyboardist Jorris Guilbaud, bassist Geoffrey Shob Neau, and drummer Benjamin Lesous.

The band came to the attention of the label when they submitted their music via the label's Frontiers & Beyond website (https://www.frontiersandbeyond.com) and instantly caught the label staff's ears with their hooky, melodic style.

    • Some guy created a video on YouTube saying Chez Kane should be the new singer, but she has shot that down as well.
    • New album 'Kings Of The Revolution' out June 14th.
    • I really should use one of my editing software to have an MP3 without it. I separated the two versions of Gone again by PC69 years ago, but for some reason never edited this. Should be able to cut most of that 3 mins and fade the song out.
    • From Lions Pride Music: Nightfox emerged from the musical landscape of Trondheim, Norway, as a dynamic fusion of synthwave origins morphing seamlessly into the hard-hitting realms of 1980s-inspired hard rock. Founded in 2012, the band initially embarked on a journey rooted in synthwave aesthetics before embracing the electrifying energy of hard rock around 2017.   Driven by a relentless passion for the roaring riffs and blazing guitar solos reminiscent of the golden era of rock, Nightfox found its true voice within the spirited soundscape of 80s rock. What began as a synthwave experiment organically evolved into a full-fledged hard rock powerhouse, propelled by the inherent inclination of their compositions towards rock's anthemic essence.   The band's evolution culminated in the creation of a diverse repertoire of instrumentals, laying the foundation for their debut EP slated for release in 2018. However, personal circumstances necessitated a postponement, prompting a pivotal realization within the band that vocals would elevate their sonic tapestry to new heights.   Between 2019 and 2020, Nightfox embarked on an intensive songwriting and recording spree, breathing life into their compositions through the addition of poignant lyrics and powerful vocals delivered by a seasoned hired singer. As the album "White Cobra" began to take shape, the band opted to release their songs sequentially, with the debut single "Ride the Sky Tonight" igniting a spark that caught the attention of Lions Pride Music record label.   With Lions Pride Music extending a record deal, Nightfox found themselves propelled into the limelight, abandoning their original release strategy in favor of a cohesive album experience. In June 2021, the world bore witness to the electrifying debut of "White Cobra," a sonic odyssey that garnered critical acclaim, widespread airplay, and sold-out pressings within months of its release. Buoyed by the success of their debut, Nightfox set their sights on the creation of their sophomore album, "Chrome Tiger," a testament to their unwavering commitment to the legacy they've forged. Scheduled for a worldwide release on August 30, 2024, "Chrome Tiger" promises to further solidify Nightfox's position as torchbearers of the hard rock resurgence, captivating audiences with their infectious energy and unbridled passion for the genre.   Nighfox is: Vocals: Felipe Del Valle Briceño All Instruments & Programming: Erik Winther
