Anciients Streaming New Song "Raise The Sun"

Progressive rock/metal outfit Anciients has debuted "Raise the Sun," the first song off of the band's debut album "Heart of Oak." You can check out “Raise the Sun” through Decibel Magazine here.

The band comments on the track: "Raise the Sun represents what we are all about as a band, musically and lyrically. It contains most if not all the elements that we look for in the kind of music we enjoy. Its heavy but melodic; this is how we like things to be. Our sound might be full of contrast and duality, but not for contrast's sake; rather always for the sake of the song. Lyrically its about an Egyptian myth, the 'Hymn To The Rising Sun' and a visualization of said myth. Its about walking the correct path and achieving a sort of awakening. 'Raise the Sun' is one of our favorites from the record for sure."

"Heart of Oak" was produced by the band, and engineered by Jesse Gander at The Hive Creative Labs in Vancouver in Winter 2011/2012, and mastered by Alan Douches at WestWestside music. The album artwork was drawn by illustrator Alison Lilly. "Heart of Oak" is slated for a North American release on April 16th, and will be available on CD, limited edition double gate-fold Lp, and digitally. The track listing is as follows:

1. Raise the Sun
2. Overthrone
3. Falling in Line
4. One Foot in the Light
5. The Longest River
6. Giants
7. Faith and Oath
