Coastlands’ new album Death is due for release on October 9th via via Translation Loss in the US and Dunk! in Europe.
Portland, Oregon instrumental post-rock trio Coastlands have shared a video for their new track ‘Lay Waste’. Taken from their upcoming new album Death, the song is a soaring and cinematic offering that calls to mind luminaries in the genre such as Russian Circles and Rosetta.
Recorded in Portland, Oregon at Dead Aunt Thelmas & Long Play Recording, the album was engineered by Jason Sissoyev. It was mixed by Kurt Ballou (Converge, Russian Circles, Every Time I Die) at GodCity Studio in Salem, Massachusetts and mastered by Magnus Lindberg (Cult of Luna, Brutus, Refused, Russian Circles) in Stockholm, Sweden at Redmount Studios. Quite a pedigree there.
“‘Lay Waste’ is about those turning point moments where you realize that despite your current circumstances, you can see a clear path to change,” Coastlands explain. “This song is about destroying yourself first(internal conflicts) and moving outward to more physically harmful and poisonous relationships. Sometimes, in order to truly move on you must burn bridges.”
