Salt Lake City’s very own heavy, progressive rock band Visitors have just premiered their latest music video for “Apoplexia” with Metal Insider. Watch the band’s latest music video HERE. “Apoplexia” is the second single off of Visitors forthcoming full-length release Crest, which is set for release on July 13th.

“Musically, this song brings together everything that makes our band what it worked towards since its inception: odd time signatures, multiple hooks, effect-laden guitar interplay, tap-driven bass lines, and an overall extreme dynamic structure that coalesces around vocal gymnastics,” states Visitors about the track. “On its own, “Apoplexia” represents the divergence to inevitable conflict of the byproducts resulting from mania. Within the context of our concept records’ story, the song embodies a calamitous literal trail of missed messages and failed signals. This was an early track for us that was heavily inspired by a lot of the bands that we were playing and touring with at the time it was written.”

A couple weeks back, Visitors released their first single, “Pollyanna”, off of the upcoming release. Check out the music video for the band’s debut track HERE. Both “Pollyanna” and “Apoplexia” can be found on the band’s long awaited debut full-length concept album Crest. The nine song album was tracked, engineered, mixed, and mastered by Stephan Hawkes (Chelsea Grin, Attila, I Declare War) at Interlace Audio.

Visitors is a heavy, experimental, progressive rock band based in Salt Lake City, Utah. Formed in late 2012, the band developed a reputation early on in the west coast post-hardcore scene for progressive-yet-accessible songwriting, high-energy live performance, and extensive use of guitar effects. Their previous releases, Blueshift (2014) and Vortices, A Foreword (2017) were met with praise from critics and fans alike for their expansive and dynamic sound, poignant lyrics, and dark ambience.
