MODERN RITUALS - THE LIGHT THAT LEAKS IN VINYL (LTD. ED. BLUE / CREAM)
LIMITED EDITION BLUE / CREAM VINYL
Release Date: 22nd June 2018
Say hello to your new favourite British rock band! Modern Rituals have been tearing it up on the British DIY scene for a while now, and bring us their debut full-length LP via Holy Roar. This is a band that sticks two fingers up to trends and instead makes honest, intense, and intricate alt-rock that becomes an onslaught to the senses with it's darkly wrapped lyrics and vocals, relentless rhythm section, and 'up to 11' guitar attack! Yet they let enough light leak in (yes that pun was intended) through addictive hum-along melodies, anthemic choruses, additional motifs from strings and horns, as well as a softer acoustic number, to perfectly temper the 11 tracks on the album. If if you like loud guitar music - you cannot miss this one!
FFO: Dinosaur Jr., Pile, Ovlov, Peaer
"“Hark!” cried the UK’s Alt-Rockers, “Will there ever be another Alt-Rock album worth listening to!?”. Fear not dear people, Modern Rituals have something special up their sleeves... Following on from their ‘Hermit Kuppling’ single and B-side, ‘The Engine’ - Holy Roar are pleased to unveil Modern Ritual’s highly anticipated debut album, The Light That Leaks In. Modern Rituals are the rejuvenation that the UK’s Alternative Rock scene has been desperately crying out for, The Light That… contains; anthemic tendencies, honest lyrics being screamed in a Pixie-esque tone and at points almost dreamy lead guitar lines that will have listeners humming the melody after just one listen. Don’t get this band wrong, when we say ‘Alt -Rock’ we mean the blisteringly heavy side of the genre with elements of sludge, much like their Boston based counterparts Pile. This album will fill the hole in your heart that you didn’t know you had. Having supported Nothing, Mothers and USA Nails off the back of just a couple of EPs, you can be assured that this stunning debut will take them to the great heights of the British Alternative Rock scene and beyond!"
