Salt Lake City heavy/progressive rock band Visitors have announced the release of their debut album, Crest, will be July 13th. You can check out a teaser of the upcoming release below. Crest is the follow up to Visitors most recent EP Vortices, A Foreword (2017) and acts as a continuation of a concept and storyline they introduced in that release. The forthcoming release includes nine new songs and was tracked, engineered, mixed, and mastered by Stephan Hawkes at Interlace Audio.
“What began as a work of fiction and musical expansion for us became one of the most intense and revealing pieces of our lives as both band members and friends. Crest is not only the continuation and culmination of the concept story that Visitors previously introduced in 2017 with Vortices, but it is also the next logical step in the sound we have been toiling away at for the better part of a decade. As the record and accompanying story unfold, the musical presentation takes a deliberate slow turn from elated manic opening phases, through a surrealism turned melancholic peak, and then down into a final cacophony of gracefully ominous darkness,” states vocalist Ian Cooperstein about the band’s debut full-length.
