Post metallers earthtone9 release their new album ‘IV’ in April 2013. The campaign begins with a free listen to the opening track ‘March Of The Yeti’.
Anyone enjoying the single can still visit http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/earthtone9-new-album to pledge to get the new album on the day of release. All pledgers also receive a FREE live album as part of the package!!!
‘IV’ is the band’s first album in 10 years and follows on from 2011′s well received ‘For Cause and Consequence’ EP. Both records were funded by the crowd sourcing initiative Pledge Music, and both highlight a band completely reinvigorated and bursting with energy.
‘The new album was fuelled by a tangible sense of joy’ explains frontman Karl Middleton. ‘Being able to come back to earthtone9 with a clear sense of purpose and none of the stresses we endured first time round has meant the music has just flooded out.’
Indeed, the ‘IV’ album showcases earthtone9 in dynamic form – combining a high octane metal sound with a real sense of experimentation. Tracks like ‘God Cloud’, ‘Harsh Light’ and ‘March Of The Yeti’ are powered by massive riffs and pile driving rhythms. And they sit comfortably alongside the serpentine flow of ten minute soundscape ‘Occam’s Razor’ and melancholic behemoth ‘Our Last Sunrise’.
Produced by Romesh Dodangoda (Motorhead, Bullet For My Valentine, Twin Atlantic, The Blackout etc) the album is a slab of modern metal that won’t disappoint.
‘We could not be more proud of this record,’ explains drummer Simon Hutchby. ‘It’s exactly the kind of music we’d want to listen to.’
The album is due for release in April 2013. Check www.earthtone9.co.uk for more details.

“More than just a band, earthtone9 are an inspiration. While their records
may be criminally overlooked by most, like mushrooms in damp spaces their
influence has blossomed darkly and over time betwixt and between the
barriers within metal ‘scenes’. Sounding as strop-fresh razor sharp to this
day as they did way back when, the songs collated on ‘Inside, Embers Glow’
are more than a mere ‘greatest hits’ set. Instead they’re a map of DIY
ideals and musical innovations.” Jim Sharples, Big Cheese Magazine
