One of the best Australian metalcore bands to come along in years, Pridelands, will release their long-awaited debut full-length album, Light Bends this Friday January 14th via SharpTone Records.

As anticipation continues to spread worldwide, the band have just dropped the record’s most vicious track, ‘Antipathy‘.

Commenting on the new single, vocalist Josh Cory says,
“Antipathy is a song that we wrote to channel and cleanse some of the more negative emotions that we had during the time.

It’s certainly the most quote/unquote “angry” song of the album, but it is not that simple. The name itself means that you severely dislike something, or have a strong aversion to it, so the lyrics and instruments try to address this as a double entendre.

We feel this deep-seeded anger towards a subject, and also to ourselves for letting it drag us down. It’s a song about the vicious cycle of anger, and how we may try to break that, praying that we and the subject both make it out.

There can be no hope without despair, no love without loss,”Pridelands’ vocalist/lyricist Joshua Cory explains of Light Bends’ core lyrical concept. “The chaos is the balance and we must bend toward its will, accepting the shadow as part of the light.

I never in a million years would’ve imagined that our debut album would end up this way,”Liam Fowler – the Melbourne-based, five-piece metal band’s guitarist/primary songwriter – proudly admits. “Being our debut album, we wanted it to be ‘perfect’.”

The arrangements throughout Pridelands’ striking 11-song collection are supple, lurching, unpredictable and exhilarating. Prepare to be blown away by sudden shifts in tone as serene moments are invaded, unexpectedly, by brutality and chaos. 

Pridelands take aim and really take it there on their debut record. Light Bends is one hell of a wild ride.

Jamie Marinos sat in the producer’s chair for Pridelands’ second EP, 2018’s critically acclaimed Any Colour You Desire, and returned to the fold for Light Bends. But when COVID-related lockdown struck, the band took over production and engineering duties.
