Soen - New Album Detailed, European Tour

After a recent update, alternative progressive metallers Soen have now revealed much more about their upcoming new album. With cover artwork by Wriliya, the group's 4th studio album, Lotus, will be released on February 1st, 2019 via Silver Lining Music.

Cody Ford, the band's new guitarist, already contributed to Lotus. Pre-orders will be available from November 16th.

"We are all very fortunate to have this place where we can go and explore thoughts, perspectives and emotions which everyday life maybe does not have the room for," says Martin Lopez, one of Soen's founding members, "there are definitely things that we say, and places we go, in Soen which would be very hard to express without us coming together and creating music."

Produced by David Castillo and Iñaki Marconi at Ghostward Studios and Studio 6 between July and October 2018, the album's centre-point remains those trademark, snap-heavy, progressive Soen riffs. Songs such as "Rival", "Covenant" and "Martyrs" are dissertations on modern societies, fraught with poetic, finitely designed confusion and chaos, yet as the name Lotus suggests, there is still strength, beauty and purity to be extracted from what at times seems like an endless cycle of human regression.

"The world right now is undeniably a very strange, tense place," says Lopez, "I think the songs clearly reflect that, but they also reflect that we must now be stronger than ever in challenging confronting and dealing with the pandemonium life throws at us all."

Soen will be bringing Lotus on the road with them as they tour Europe starting in March 2019.
