Lesser Glow Readies Debut Album, "Ruined"

Boston-based melodic post metal/doom collective Lesser Glow -- featuring former members of Black Elm, Irepress, and The Proselyte -- will release their debut full-length Ruined this June via Pelagic Records. With "Ruined," Lesser Glow rips open a massively wide and confident blend of traditional doom meets melodic metal, paired with the likes of hardcore, post hardcore, noise rock, post rock and beyond. "Ruined" will see release on June 8th on CD, LP, and digital formats. The album is available for preorder in North America here and in Europe here. Digital orders are available here.

"I was caught in a major '90s binge, listening to a bunch of stuff like Unsane and Failure, and feeling like that raw, palpable energy and songwriting was slipping away from modern heavy records," comments main songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Andrew Nault, who is not only the guitarist in LESSER GLOW, but also session drummer for electro-post-hiphop outfit Arms And Sleepers. "I was tired of genre-choked bands, and missed hearing songs instead of riff parades."

The lineup of the band came together organically, "though now the combination of individuals feels incredibly fortunate," comments Nault. The fact that all members are experienced professionals - engineers and session musicians - has certainly helped LESSER GLOW to accomplish the simplicity that makes this record what it is: Heavy.

"I tried to keep that simplicity in mind during the recording process, don't over play or worry about shredding to fill space," adds bass player Scott Conza. "Just as important as choosing when to play, is choosing when not to play."

Here's the "Ruined" track listing:

1. Ruined
2. Vacant Throne
3. Tel Meggido
4. Empty Eyes
5. Fall On Mortal Decay
6. Under The Polar Shade

Lesser Glow is:

Alec Rodriguez - vocals
Andrew Nault - guitar
Ben Gram - guitar
Scott Conza - bass
Seth Botos - drums
