On The Den, Freighter has created music that’s engaging for metalheads and nonmetalheads alike. Brutal, complex riﬀs and powerful vocals weave inside drums that explode with color and life. By eschewing a click track and maintaining continuous unedited drum takes, The Den places a priority on the humanity of the material, giving the production a warmth and bounce that is immediately captivating to all sorts of listeners. Ever-shifting time signatures, metric modulations, and microtonality are juxtaposed with deep grooves and progressive harmonies to lend a sense of unpredictability and unreliability, owing to the album’s thematic focus on the endless struggle with sleep -- and the downstream effects of not getting enough of it.
The Den will be released in vinyl and digital formats on July 12, 2019. Get the vinyl here: https://freighter.bandcamp.com/album/the-den
