Night Verses Share Massive New Track, “Phoenix IV: Levitation”


Southern California trio, Night Verses have released their new track “Phoenix IV: Levitation” from their forthcoming album From The Gallery Of Sleep – available for pre-order now ahead of its June 29th release on Equal Vision Records.

From The Gallery Of Sleep finds Night Verses redefining what a progressive metal band can sound like, pushing the boundaries, not only without a vocalist, but by bending the sounds that are “generally acceptable” within a heavy record. In the end, From The Gallery Of Sleep sheds much of their metalcore origins putting them ahead of their time as a progressive post rock band. The first single “Phoenix IV: Levitation” is a 9 minute epic, showing off the range accomplished throughout the new album. Following the release, the band will be heading out on a full US tour in July with Strawberry Girls. 

Speaking on the new track, drummer Aric Improta, says:

“One of the main themes attached to the Phoenix is a bird rising from its ashes into a new form of itself and even though it’s a pretty on the nose analogy, we always use the “Phoenix” songs (on each album) as an attempt to raise the bar for ourselves musically. We usually try and include all of our favorite ideas and most challenging passages in that one song. It also acts a personal time capsule, reminding us of what our peak level of musicality was during that cycle.”
