The Browning Premiere New Song “Carnage”, Reveal Details For New Album “Geist”

The Browning have premiered a new song titled “Carnage.” This track is from the band’s new album “Geist,” which will be released on October 26.

Vocalist Jonny McBee commented:

“Our new album ‘Geist‘ is by far our most dynamic sounding record. It has the heaviest, and softest music The Browning has ever written. ‘Carnage‘ is tip of the hat to the classic sound we have but with a ton of intensity and a feature from Jake Hill. When I wrote this song, the only thing I had in mind was to make it as high energy and hyped as possible.”

“My end goal for The Browning is to be industrial-electronic-rock-metal. For this new album, I knew there needed to be a massive change not just musically for listeners, but for myself. That change had to come from the vocals. I’ve been working on finding the right voice for three years that’s powerful and melodic, but still extremely heavy and emotional. It was a long process, and I documented most of it live on my Twitch channel.”

“Geist” Track Listing:

01. “Sick Minds”
02. “Beyond Stone”
03. “Final Breath”
04. “Ever Lost”
05. “Optophobia”
06. “Awaken the Omega”
07. “Hellblade”
08. “Carnage” (feat. Jake Hill)
09. “Geist”
10. “Noctis”
11. “Amnesia”
12. “Skybreaker”
