Upon Wings To Release New EP "Afterlife"

Upon Wings is proud to announce the release of new EP, "Afterlife," featuring guest vocals and production from Brett Hestla (Ex-Creed, Dark New Day). "Afterlife" is scheduled for a March 5th release on Sword of the Spirit Records LLC.

The EP's debut single and title track is set to hit alternative and rock radio and digital outlets on January 15th, but you can hear it first today courtesy of Noisecreep. Head over here to check out an exclusive stream of the title track "Afterlife."

Rock and metal fans will recognize plenty of names on "Afterlife." Kid Rock recording engineer and Grammy-nominated mixing engineer Glenn Brown mastered the single, while Brett Hestla (ex-Creed, Dark New Day) provided guest vocals and production talents. More metal assistance for the upcoming EP came from producer and guitarist Kevin Jardine, best known as the guitarist of Canadian nu metal giants Slaves on Dope, formerly on Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne's Divine Recordings label. Drummer Peter Tzaferis also contributed to the EP.

Recording sessions for "Afterlife" took place at Johnny K's legendary Groovemaster Studios in Chicago, where Disturbed, 3 Doors Down, Staind and countless other heavy music-makers have laid down tracks.

Upon Wings combines operatic, female-fronted goth-pop with rousing rock and metal in a unique, ethereal fashion. Frontwoman Anne Autumn Erickson is a classically trained dramatic mezzo-soprano, and her lyrics take listeners down a path of heartfelt introspection, pain, joy and faith.
