On A Pale Horse Post New Song Online

ON A PALE HORSE, the Des Moines, Iowa-based band featuring guitarist Josh Brainard (ex-SLIPKNOT) and vocalist Aaron Peltz (ex-DOWNTHESUN), is currently streaming a new song, "Release the Smoke", on the group's MySpace page. The track comes off the band's new album, "A Generation of Vipers", due on March 4 via Corporate Punishment Records.

Commented vocalist Aaron Peltz: "This tune was initially written for the last record and fortunately the way we had it then didn't make the final cut. When we started writing for the new album we came back to this song and retooled it a bit and BAM, it turned out to be my favorite song that we have ever done. It's weird how things work out like that.

"'Release the Smoke' started out as just a title and a vision of what I thought it should be about. Since I was feeling a native-mysticism type vibe for the song who better to write the lyrics than Jerry [Spargur, guitar]. He actually came up with the words when I was cutting vocals with Warren [Riker, producer] and it took him maybe a half hour to write it. He also added some native tongue during the end of the tune and added the spoken word that you hear in the middle.

"The song is about a sweatlodge that natives go into (kind of like a sauna, but hotter and more uncomfortable). They used these as a way to receive visions and to cleanse the spirit."
