Anciients Streaming New Song "Faith And Oath"

Progressive rock/metal outfit Anciients has premiered a new song from forthcoming album, "Heart of Oak." The new track, "Faith and Oath" is streaming at Guitar World or through the player below. Regarding the song, guitarist Chris Dyck said:

β€œIt began lyrically with some combo ideas about the Mayan's serpent-god beliefs and a strange dream I had about a snake-killing ritual. The serpent originally was representing the deceiver; as the song progressed and the vibe was realized it became our anthem for courage and strength. The chorus features Scott Ruddy from Weirding (killer doomy Vancouver band) on vocals with me. The proggy fast riff is what I like to call a 'ninja riff'... Looks hard, easy to play. Kenny's solo here is mental and I love how Hannay and Boon shift the timing on the last 2 repetitions of the solo riff to a swinging old 3/4 beat. The outro has Kenny laying down some sweet Dave Gilmour. We all dig Pink Floyd...Gilmour is the man. Cheers.”

The "Heart of Oak" album is slated for a North American release on April 16th, and will be available on CD, limited edition double gate-fold Lp, and digitally.

Anciients has also announced its participation in the Death To All Tour. The band will tour alongside legendary metal icons Paul Masvidal, Steve DiGiorgio, and Sean Reinert: The "Human" lineup of legendary metal pioneers Death.

The tour spans 3 weeks, hitting a dozen cities across North America. Regarding the tour, guitarist Kenneth Cook said: "We are completely stoked and overjoyed to be invited to play on the Death To All tour. Chuck Schuldiner and Death are legendary, and it is an honor to be able to celebrate his life for a great cause.”

A portion of the proceeds will once again benefit the Sweet Relief charity, a non-profit devoted to helping musicians without insurance who are facing serious illness. A full list of tour dates can be found below.
