UK post-metal band Gozer who released their debut album An Endless Static last year are set to return on 3 November with new EP The Path Always Leads To The End. They have also shared the sludge filled new single ‘Celestial River’ which you can enjoy right here.
The new EP builds off the themes of mental health found throughout their first release, this EP’s subject puts more focus on passing on and with it the unknown of what comes next.
The band say: “A Lot of us have our own notion of what comes after we pass, some people find comfort in the belief of some form of afterlife beyond what we could ever experience in this mortal coil, others may simply believe we return to the earth and the cycle of life continues.
I’m still undecided about what happens once we breathe our last breath but I know that creating something with people means a great deal as all we truly leave once we are gone, are the people in our lives with who we shared our passions, successes, losses, joy and sadness but above all else our love.”
‘Celestial River’ is the first single to be shared from the EP with the band adding: “Celestial River was one of the first tracks we wrote after finishing our album An Endless Static. Originally it was going to be instrumental, but Kez came with these great lyrics that summed up how life pushes you forward. There’s always obsticals but if there’s a way to embrace them we can hopefully be happier when we look back on our journey”.
