Born Of Osiris Gearing Up For Album Release

Born of Osiris is gearing up to release new album "Soul Sphere" via Sumerian Records on October 23, 2015.

Many religions, cultures, and stories attribute power to the number three. In Egyptian mythology, it symbolizes plurality, and triads of deities comprise a complete system. It’s no surprise that the god Osiris was born to one such triad alongside siblings Horus and Isis. It’s also not a coincidence that Chicago heavy metal quintet Born Of Osiris found a similar significance within that number on new full-length album, "Soul Sphere." In fact, over the course of 12 tracks, the record examines three tiers originally uncovered in a dream that Joe Buras [clean vocals, synthesizers, keyboards] shared.

“The whole story of the record involves three levels,” explains Joe. “The first one is The Binding. You’re hanging, and you’re stagnant. The second is The Fight. You were hanging, but now you’re pulling away from this linchpin, whether it’s physical, emotional, or spiritual. The final is The Release. You break away and feel free, connected, and loved.”

In order to properly explore the “tiers,” the group — Joe, Ronnie Canizaro [vocals], Cameron Losch [drums], David Da Rocha [bass], and Lee McKinney [guitar] — strengthened their bond exponentially. “Over the years, you get better at creating, writing, and recording in the studio,” says Ronnie. “You improve each time you make an album. Once we had the direction, it started gelling.”

Born Of Osiris preceded the album with the fiery chant of “Throw Me In The Jungle,” showcasing the band's anthemic side. The follow-up “Resilience” evinced another angle. Its gnashing polyrhythmic guitars collide with orchestral electronics and a forceful and fiery refrain, tapping into the band’s hallmarks while fortifying the attack.

“We wanted to use that title for so long,” Joe goes on. “Collectively, we’ve had so much resilience, going through different friendships and changes over the years but still maintaining our connection amongst us.”

Then there’s “Illuminate,” which tempers a wall of distortion with a big chorus. The third single “Goddess of the Dawn” snaps from a thick groove punctuated by pinch harmonics before an entrancing clean hook. More...

Born Of Osiris Comments On Upcoming Tour

Born of Osiris has now released new album "Tomorrow We Die Alive," and the band will also spend this fall on tour across North America with label mates Periphery, Dead Letter Circus, and Twelve Foot Ninja. See dates below.

Check out the band's new music video for the track "Machine" after the jump, which was filmed live at the Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival in Detroit, MI.

Lee McKinney (guitars) states: “Wow, we recently wrapped up the RockStar Energy Mayhem Festival tour and this was one of the best summers of my life and easily my favorite tour we've ever done. Everything about the festival is so smooth and relaxed. We got to play to bigger crowds than ever, make new fans that wouldn't normally get to see us and we were out there playing new music from our new record. The whole summer just had so much excitement to it. The new material was going over insanely well, most of the time even better than our old material.

"The new disc, Tomorrow We Die Alive, to me is the record that we always should have put out. It has such a fresh and alive feeling to it. We had the live atmosphere in mind when we were writing it, too. I think for that reason this is gonna be the first record where people can come see us and hear a ton of new music. This record is just straight heavy beginning to end with some of my favorite melodic parts, and some of my favorite moods/atmospheres. I also really love what Ronnie and Joe are doing vocally with this one, it's been another great way to pack in as much melody and feeling as possible. We're getting ready for our CD release show at Reggie's in Chicago and it's impossible to decide which songs we are going to play off the new record because we want to play them all.

“Please go pick-up Tomorrow We Die Alive as we have never been more proud of anything we've created. We can't wait to hear what you all think of it and thanks for all of your continued support. See you all very soon." More...

Periphery Announces "This Tour Is Personal"

Periphery will put the wraps on the most successful year of the band's career with a monstrous North American headlining tour.

The "This Tour Is Personal" trek, sponsored by Jackson Guitars, ToonTrack, Guitar World ,and All In Merch, kicks off on October 11th and also features Born of Osiris, Dead Letter Circus, and Twelve Foot Ninja. Dates are available below.

Misha Mansoor (guitars) states: “We have been having a hard time keeping the details of our upcoming headlining tour package under-wraps because of how excited we are about it. This is mainly because for this trek we will be joined by Born of Osiris, Dead Letter Circus and Twelve Foot Ninja. We felt that having those three bands would add some nice variety, virtuosity and of course virility to the package.

“We will be doing some different tiered VIP packages for this headliner as well, with more specific details on those in the coming weeks. You should make it out to a show because we have not one, but two, Australian bands on this package and we all know what a rarity that is. Also, this will be the last tour on this current album cycle for us, so we won't be back around for awhile. See ya there.” More...
