“Once again we have partnered up with the legendary Dave Brodsky and the rest of the fine folks at MyGoodEye Visuals to bring you this video for ‘A Home‘ from our new record ‘Where Owls Know My Name‘ out today! This video was shot in our hometown of Reading, Pennsylvania, so going along with the song title this video feels very much at home for us. Catch us out on tour for the next five weeks across the US and Canada with Dying Fetus, Thy Art Is Murder, Enterprise Earth, and Sanction!”


Rivers Of Nihil Premiere New Song “Where Owls Know My Name”

Rivers Of Nihil have premiered the title track of their new album “Where Owls Know My Name,” via Loudwire. That effort will be released on March 16. Guitarist Brody Uttley commented:

“On the title track of ‘Where Owls Know My Name’, we really let out a different side of our musical personality that nobody has ever seen from us before. This song in many ways feels like the perfect culmination of everything that we were, everything that we are, and everything that we will come to be. Our long time friend Andy Thomas from Black Crown Initiate also contributed some fantastic vocal lines to this track.”

Rivers Of Nihil Premiere New Song “The Silent Life”, Reveal Details For New Album “Where Owls Know My Name”

Rivers Of Nihil have premiered a new song titled “The Silent Life.” This track is from the band’s new album “Where Owls Know My Name,” which will be released on March 16.

“Where Owls Know My Name” Track Listing:

01. “Cancer / Moonspeak”
02. “The Silent Life”
03. “A Home”
04. “Old Nothing”
05. “Subtle Change (Including The Forest Of Transition And Dissatisfaction Dance)”

07. “Hollow”
08. “Death Is Real”
09. “Where Owls Know My Name”
10. “Capricorn / Agoratopia”

Guitarist Brody Uttley had the following to say about the album:

“This record is Rivers Of Nihil being exactly who we want to be. Many bands get stuck in a comfortable routine of releasing the same album over and over again. Constantly relying on the same familiar formula may work for some bands, but it does not work for us. Music is art, and art is ever-changing. Without change, there is no progress. Without progress, the very fire that powers art and expression will die. This record is the sound of where we come from, where we are, and where we are going.”

Bassist/vocalist Adam Biggs added:

“This time around, the lyrics feel a little more personal than on previous albums. The story picks up several millennia after the events of ‘Monarchy‘, where one person still remains alive, chosen by the planet to be the sole intelligent witness of its ultimate fate. But ‘Where Owls Know My Name‘ is less about overarching narrative than our previous albums. The scenario is just a backdrop for the more emotional material we tried to put forth this time around. Ultimately, this is an album about loss, getting older, and reaching a point where death becomes a much more present part of your life.”

You can catch the band on tour this spring with Dying Fetus, Thy Art Is Murder, Enterprise Earth, and Sanction.
