Portland, Oregon’s UNTO OTHERS have announced details of their new album ‘STRENGTH’, which will be released September 24th on Roadrunner Records and is available for pre-order today (album art/track listing below). 

The band have also shared the new song, ‘Downtown’ which is streaming today on all platforms and joined by an official music video directed by Brock Grossl – watch it HERE or at the link below.

UNTO OTHERS’ vocalist/guitarist Gabriel Franco elaborated on the birth of ‘STRENGTH’ sharing; “I wish I could say it came to me like a bolt of lightning, but the record was a process.

A challenging process, to write, record and mix. It was 10 months from beginning to end, and the most time I’ve ever spent on an album. You can decide if that’s good or bad. Arthur did a great job giving the record an organic heavy sound and it was a privilege to work with him.

What we have at the end is something I am extremely proud of, for better or worse, and a constant reminder to myself that we don’t do things because they are easy, we do them because they are hard.

Produced and mixed by Arthur Rizk (Code Orange, Power Trip), ‘STRENGTH’ was recorded between June 2020 and April 2021 at Redwood Studio in Philadelphia, PA and Falcon Studios in Portland, OR.

The forthcoming release marks UNTO OTHERS’ debut album on Roadrunner Records and the follow-up to their critically acclaimed 2019 LP, ‘Mana’.  ‘STRENGTH’ also features the single ‘When Will Gods Work Be Done’ which arrived last month alongside news of the band’s signing. 

Stereogum praised the single attesting, “UNTO OTHERS build and build, showing mastery in setting a scene, stretching tension to its breaking point, and then blowing it to smithereens with panache.

Comprised of Gabriel Franco (Vocals / Guitar), Brandon Hill (Bass), Sebastian Silva (Guitar), and Colin Vranizan (Drums), UNTO OTHERS formed in Portland, OR in 2017 and quickly made waves out of the Pacific Northwest under their previous band name, IDLE HANDS.

Following 2018’s Don’t Waste Your Time EP, they released their debut full-length album Mana in 2019 to widespread acclaim.

The impact of Mana was immediate, earning ‘Best of 2019’ album accolades from Metal Hammer, Decibel, Invisible Oranges, Treble, Stereogum and Heavy Consequence, with the latter observing, “Franco sounds more like Robert Smith than he does Bruce Dickinson, even though one can hear The Cure and Iron Maiden both in his band’s sound.

Next up, UNTO OTHERS will join Behemoth, Arch Enemy and Carcass for a massive European fall tour, kicking off on September 28th in Dublin, Ireland and running for six weeks through November 7th at Rockefeller in Oslo, Norway [itinerary below].
