Rock/metal outfit Japam have announced the release of their new EP Sickboy will be on April 12th with preorders opening up today. The band have also dropped the official first single off the EP with “Roak”, accompanied by a video clip.
Japam are bringing back the bounce with Sickboy! Mixed and mastered by Taylor Larson (Periphery, From First to Last, Veil of Maya and Asking Alexandria) at Oceanic Recording, the EP combines influences from the heavy, technical groove of modern progressive music to the melodic appeal of 90’s pop and rock music. Japam create an energetic and infectious soundscape, sure to please a vast array of keen music listeners.
“Roak” is the first single off Sickboy and as Japam guitarist, Seb Hudson, said “[Roak] is the signature ‘djent’ song on the EP, and a personal favourite for most of the band.” This track really pushes the band’s limits in terms of playability and showcases their capabilities. Relentlessly heavy from start to finish, it’s a headbanger’s dream.
