The band had this to say about the track: “We’re very excited to present a preview track from our forthcoming album ‘Threnodies’ as well as the cover artwork. The artwork and layout were created by Colombian, Berlin-based artist Daniel Correa Mejia. We were mesmerised by his paintings and decided that his work fits perfectly with our music. ‘Balearic Blue’ is more along the lines of our previous release ‘Illusory Blues’, so expect something different for the next track. We’re very much looking forward to performing some of these new songs on our forthcoming tour with the Von Hertzen Brothers and HRH Prog in March”

Messenger will be hitting the road in advance of the new album’s release, with the band joining Finnish rockers Von Hertzen Brothers on their UK tour in March.
