Cicadastone release new album “Cold Chamber”

The past year saw the release of 3 huge singles lifted from Cold Chamber, “Box Of Anger”, “Dying in Sunshine” and “Out Of Sight”, and earlier this week, the band dropped a fourth single “Slave In A Cage” to whet the appetites of fans ahead of the release today of the official music video for the track, alongside the full album.

Described as somewhat of a tribute to the 80’s sci-fi classic, “They Live”, Matt Robins (guitar/vocals) explains the concept behind the “Slave in a Cage” video clip:

“The theme of the song and film were similar, so it was great to merge the two together. The music video shows a story of a girl stuck in her day-to-day life, but by chance, discovers what’s secretly around us all…a society being controlled and manipulated as we live our lives – but there is a twist to the story at the end!”

“Cold Chamber” is an album that continues to push the grunge rock boundaries and picks up where the 90’s movement left off. An authentic, dark and melodically driven soundscape, powerful in its execution, the songs are complex in design and detail, yet flow with simplicity and ease.

The album is a musical landscape of twists and turns, and a journey you don’t see much in modern albums, with its own unique sound while staying truly authentic to the genre – a difficult task in a time when it’s all been done before.
