Statues Reveals Details Of New Album

Following the reveal of the disturbing and unsettling music video for "Unrest" last week (check it out in the player below), Australian hardcore outfit Statues has now revealed pre-order details, plus artwork and track listing from the forthcoming album "No Grave, No Burial," which is to be self-released on November 10th. You can now pre-order the album from Bandcamp or iTunes.

Statues explores a new direction with this record, whilst maintaining a strong connection to the roots and increasingly making them one of the prominent live bands to see, within Australian heavy music. The band has shared stages with the likes of Northlane, Norma Jean, Every Time I Die and many more.

"No Grave, No Burial" is a conceptual album set in the heart of a civil war, the character must find safety by leaving his home. To escape he must lose loved ones, battle his own demons, face who took all he knows and uncover a horrific truth at the end of his struggles. He fights to find freedom, only to further persecution and a bleak reality.

Statues kept the recording process entirely in-house with the album produced and mixed by Matthew Templeman (Voyager, Make Them Suffer, Surroundings) and mastered by Matthew’s long-time collaborator, Simon Struthers (Paul Dempsy, The Love Junkies, The Decline). The production balances the chaos and contrast of the previous album, with a thicker and more atmospheric aesthetic and a reflective of the gut wrenching theme of this record.

The track listing is:

1 Collapse
2 Sirens
3 Defiance
4 OnwardsTo The Sun
5 -
6 No Grave, No Burial
7 Unrest
8 Dirge
9 Sanctuary More...

Guitarist Scott Kay recently told TeamRock.com: "We're excited to release our first offering for 2016, and our first song with our new members, Alex and Matt. It's aggressive as always, but we wanted to experiment with a more conventional song structure. We hope you dig it. The video was directed by Drew Kendell and the song was mixed by Matthew Templeman and mastered by Simon Struthers. We’re also proud to say all production elements were kept within our home city of Perth." More...
