Lycanthrope’s debut full-length album, Chapters will see it’s release this Friday February 16 – and they are heading out on the road straight way. New single from the record, Skin & Bones, dropped last week and hype has been building for the Newcastle sextet.
Overdrive Mag said “You will not sit still when [Chapters] starts, it will hook you in so be prepared!”
Insert Review Here gave it praise, saying “Lycanthrope have created something truly special. You will find deliciously heavy sections, sing-along choruses and a lot of memorable moments here, and a record overall sure to slide perfectly into your collection, somewhere between Parkway Drive and Aversions Crown.”
Rogue Inc loved it, saying “Lycanthrope better be getting some of the fucking recognition they deserve soon. The quality, execution and thoughts behind this album promote the image of a band that has been around the international spotlight for a few years. I cannot fault this even if you paid me to .”
Wall of Sound says “It’s only a matter of time before they’ll cement themselves as an act to watch.”
Pre-Orders for the album are now live on iTunes – purchasers will receive Chapters as part of that. New track Skin & Bones is live on Spotify now.
The new album, ‘Chapters’ and singles ‘Chapters’ and ‘Like a Ghost’ were recorded in early 2017 at Spinlight Studios with Rhys Zacher. The record has produced what is a developed and more focused and intense sound for the band.
Founded in late 2011, Lycanthrope hail from Newcastle, NSW, Australia. They immediately began playing shows and recorded their debut EP Limitless – from which the track The Golden Mile peaked on the Triple J Unearthed radio charts at #4 – what followed was a string of supports for I Killed The Prom Queen, Northlane, Like Moths To Flames, Aversions Crown, In Hearts Wake, Confession, Trophy Eyes, Capture The Crown and many more, as well as tour New Zealand. The crushing current line-up consists of Aidan Lee, Dan Greig, Brett Scott, Jason Salvini, Scott Wright and Matthew Stoja.
Pre-Orders for Lycanthrope’s ‘Chapters’ album are live on iTunes & all digital stores now. For More Information about the album and tour dates, go to https://www.facebook.com/lycanthropemusic.
