Spirit Adrift Premiere “Screaming From Beyond” Music Video

Spirit Adrift have premiered a new video for their new song “Screaming From Beyond.” This track is from the band’s new album “Enlightened In Eternity,” which will be released on October 16.

Nate Garrett told Consequence Of Sound the following:

“The fourth songs on our albums, I always pay special attention to them. I didn’t want to put any clean guitar on this album, but I think the only clean guitar track is at the very end of ‘Screaming From Beyond‘, and it’s just for a second. Rather than doing a ballad for track four this time around, I wanted to do something really catchy that would have a sound that’s very classic and timeless sounding.

I had this idea of coping with death and framed that idea around a ghost story. The concept of the album is life and death and trying to figure out how to deal with a reality that is constantly trying to kill you or get you to kill yourself. So, the song ‘Screaming from Beyond‘ is about being haunted, literally and figuratively.

Maybe being haunted by a ghost is a fantastical take on being haunted by trauma or being haunted by the pain of losing a loved one, not being able to move on and being stuck in this quagmire of suffering and sadness.”

The track was recorded in the style of Thin Lizzy and “Two Minutes To Late Night” had the following to say about it:

“Call your girlfriend, the boys are back in town! We covered Robyn as if it were a Thin Lizzy song and Mlny‘s back with another fake mustache. This is our 21st (what the hell???) bedroom cover made with the support of Patreon.

“‘Astral Levitation‘ is about searching within for untapped power during times of darkness and despair. It’s an empowering soundtrack to the challenging times we all currently face.”

Spirit Adrift Premiere New Song “Harmony Of The Spheres”, Reveal Details For New Album “Enlightened In Eternity”

Spirit Adrift have premiered a lyric video for their new song “Harmony Of The Spheres.” This track is from the band’s new album “Enlightened In Eternity,” which will be released on October 16.

“Enlightened In Eternity” Track Listing:

01. “Ride Into The Light”
02. “Astral Levitation”
03. “Cosmic Conquest”
04. “Screaming From Beyond”
05. “Harmony Of The Spheres”
06. “Battle High”
07. “Stronger Than Your Pain”
08. “Reunited In The Void”

Nate Garrett said the following about the new record:

“I wrote the songs on ‘Enlightened In Eternity‘ before my life fell apart, and from the beginning I set out to make this our most uplifting and empowering album. I’m glad I did that, because ironically enough, these songs helped me keep going when things got bad. I’m proud of the work Marcus put in, I’m proud of these songs, and I’m proud of how we navigated the entire experience. This is the most challenging record I’ve ever made, and it’s my favorite record I’ve ever made. I hope it helps others the way it helped me.”

He also added:

“Making a Spirit Adrift album is always intense, but ‘Chained To Oblivion‘ and ‘Curse Of Conception‘ dealt with issues from my past, and ‘Divided By Darkness‘ dealt with external issues from more of a philosophical perspective, so there was a bit of a protective layer of detachment between the material and myself.

On the other hand, when Marcus and I recorded ‘Enlightened In Eternity‘, we were in the middle of a lot of intense emotional upheaval — hour to hour, minute to minute. Some days it took everything I had to keep working, particularly when it was time to record vocals.

From a technical standpoint, things couldn’t have gone smoother. But from an emotional standpoint, it was brutal. The silver lining is that our hearts and souls are embedded into this record with a raw immediacy and urgency that’s unmatched by our previous material.”

Godla commented:

“By keeping the set times between 5 and 15 minutes for each artist, it allows me to not only keep things moving, but mix it up in ways that conventional festivals simply can’t. Every single hour will contain big names and emerging artists right next to each other.

I’m trying to look at the bright side of our current situation, and not only make this an entertaining way to see the artists you love flex their creativity in new ways, but hope this event acts as a place of discovery for every viewer out there.

Finding a band or artist to fall in love with is the mark of a great festival to me, and it’s my honor to share the work of these amazing individuals I curated because I’m passionate about them. I’ve been in touch with all of them every step of the way, and some even managed to throw me a few surprises.

I’m honored and humbled to have all of them part of this, they truly went above and beyond to showcase their craft for the Slay At Home fest, and I can’t wait for the world to see something really special come to life this weekend.”

Money raised from the event will benefit MusiCares and Global Giving.
