Ne Obliviscaris Premiere “Equus” Music Video

Ne Obliviscaris have premiered a new video for their new song “Equus.” This track is from the band’s new album “Exul,” which will be released on March 24.

The band said the following about the song:

“‘Equus‘ is dedicated to the lives lost during the lethal bush fires that scarred Australia in 2019-2020. Alongside the people who died or were affected, many millions, if not billions, of animals were killed or displaced from their natural habitats, the enormity of this is something that will never be forgotten, and should not be ignored.

It is also a warning that the world we live in is changing from the damage we as a species have contributed to. Within this video, the dancer represents a scorched Mother Earth, from horror to humanity, ever in tune with the heart and flow of the song (and world), and ultimately aware of the inevitable and ever growing destructive cycle we are in.”

They also added the following about the album:

“Our approach is always the same which is essentially to just write and see what comes out. ‘Exul‘ definitely had its challenges during the songwriting process. Part of the beauty of how our music comes together is that we are quite different individuals bringing an array of ideas together.

From there, we work out how to combine them into something that is seamless and beautiful to us. We were determined to make this our best and most complete album yet, which definitely resulted in it taking longer. But we are so proud of this album and it’s exciting to finally share it with the world.”

Drummer Dan Presland Exits Ne Obliviscaris

Ne Obliviscaris have parted ways with drummer Dan Presland. A replacement has yet to be revealed.

The band commented:

“Dan has been an absolute rock behind the kit for this band for so many years, so many songs, so many tours…

Dan has decided to move on to other things and say goodbye to his time in NeO, but he’ll always be a huge part of how we arrived at this point here today and we are so grateful to have shared so many special moments together over the years…

**For those already enquiring about auditions for the vacant drumming position, we’ll be making announcements at a later date. **”

Presland added:

“After 16 years, I am pulling the curtains on NeO and moving on to new and different challenges with my life. Like everybody else on this planet, the last 2 years especially has been a shake up for myself and the directions I am now heading on. It has been an incredible ride being in this band from basically day 1.

It was the first band I ever tried out for, after playing drums for about a year, and I am still thankful to this day the guys were patient with me and let me grow into the band. The band has definitely shaped the musician I have grown into to this day. I was always proud of not accepting invitations to join established touring bands, and pushed forward with NeO.

I always said I would never travel overseas until music took me, as a personal accountability measure to keep me focused on my goals – I achieved that with these guys and very proud of what we have accomplished as a unit.

I recorded drums for the new record back in March 2020, and of course will still keep my tracks for the record. It’s had its setbacks, but I can assure you it is a damn strong record. I did more prep work and writing for that record than I have done for anything else, and I’m excited for everybody to hear the end result. Hopefully the guys will have news for you on that sometime soon.

I will be continuing with music, and have in the last few months become quite busy with new projects, and my new band Black Lava. I will continue to play music and tour, nothing will change there. I’ll be keeping my options open for any future projects/opportunities/touring that may come my way, but until then my studio, my full time day job, and my bands will keep me pretty busy for now.

We are all parting on good terms, I have a lifetime of memories with the boys, I will miss them dearly, and I am extremely grateful for all the friends and opportunities with music that have entered my life through NeO. I wish nothing but success to the guys moving forward. Thanks guys for a hell of a ride, and thank you to everyone I have met through the band, all the crew, fans, bands, haters and the 100s of drummers I now call friends worldwide.

Cheers”
