Never one to do things in halves, Melbourne metal entrepreneurs Gravemind teased their upcoming album in a way their fans have come to expect. Via their (at the time unannounced) new home Greyscale Records first came the cypher, then the clues, and now both the band and label are proud to announce Gravemind joining the Greyscale family, and announcing their debut album Conduit will arrive this July, with the album now available on their website, www.gravemindofficial.com.
This album has been an intense labour of love that was over two years in the making, but vocalist, Dylan Gillies-Parsons unpacks the experience as a necessary means to an end. “We wanted to take our time with this record. It had to be as close to perfect as possible, and it needed to accurately reflect who we were, and what we felt as individuals. This album is our reveal, it is the truth as we see it, in all it’s forms”
triple j's The Racket premiered the intense first single Volgin; an ode to chasing what deep down we know we are truly made for, to listen to the very things everything in life tells us to ignore. “Volgin is about being alone in the way you see the world. Instead of finding ways to pacify yourself, or conform to others beliefs; it’s about going against the grain, in search of meaning. No matter how much it hurts, no matter how alone you feel, it’s about realising your true potential by doing the one thing we so rarely do - listen to what your soul is telling you”.
Gravemind has made short work of the past seven months since the release of their debut album, playing Good Things Festival in December, and touring as main support for Thy Art Is Murder and Northlane. With an international, and Australian headline tour on the horizon, it seems now that nothing can stop them.
