This Burning Age return to the fold today with their new EP Salvation. The violent, beautiful and intelligent new collection of bruising alt rock songs is led by the savage guitars and euphoric chorus of Conceal, their new single.
“It’s a very personal track,” offers frontman Friday about Conceal. “I was writing about the moment of clarity that can happen when you’re at your absolute lowest ebb. It’s peace after discord. Sweetness in solitude. Joy from sorrow.” Watch here
Salvation follows rock press and radio acclaim for last year’s Tatterdemalion single and Desolation EP, which saw the band compared to alt-metal heavyweights Nine Inch Nails and Smashing Pumpkins. This Burning Age’s welding of electro, punk, grunge and art-rock demands the attention of your ears, heart and head – aggressive, unpredictable and adventurous with lyrics that explore the human condition and offer no easy answers. As charismatic frontman Friday explains – “In an industry that’s become a little stale and predictable, it’s our aim to not only create music that we’d want to hear but that pushes boundaries. We want to make music that inspires – both intellectually as well as in that all important, almost inexplicable, visceral, kick-in-the-guts way that you feel when you hear something you immediately connect to.”
