RELEASE SURPRISE NEW ALBUM
OUT NOW WORLDWIDE
Northlane have released their surprise new album Mesmer today. The album dropped worldwide at 9pm GMT with no prior announcement and is available in all physical and
Mesmer, Northlane’s beautiful fourth album, is a triumph – the band’s most organic yet precise album yet. it covers familiar topics but renders them in a new way, at once paying heed to the band’s heaviest roots and looking forward to an unwritten future. Recorded throughout September 2016 in New Jersey with acclaimed producer David Bendeth (Bring Me The Horizon, Paramore, A Day To Remember), this is Northlane’s defining statement. And presented directly to their fans in such an unorthodox and exciting manner, Mesmer will echo worldwide through 2017 and long beyond.
Northlane have released the following statement explaining why they released Mesmer unannounced.
“Through determination, hard work, sacrifice and a bit of luck, we are able to travel the world taking our music to fans both old and new. We’re able to spend time crafting the music we want to hear with the benefit of not having to leave the studio early to go and work a job. To an artist these are real luxuries. We appreciate them more than anything and we’re in the position of being able to do this because of you - our incredible fans who continue to support us. You free us to be the artists we want to be.
This is our way of rewarding our fans for everything they’ve given us. What our music means to you is what it means to us. Art is an experience, and to us it reserves no room for competition, and the only accolade that matters to us is the place this holds in your heart.
Releasing Mesmer in this way has been right for us at this moment in time. We have grown immeasurably as people and as a band through the toughest recording process we’ve ever endured. We’ve been tested every step of the way and have come out the other side with something we are truly proud of. We didn’t want to keep it from you a moment longer than we had to. We felt we owed it to this album to try and think creatively about every aspect of the way people would experience Mesmer, like a gift from us to you that is being unboxed. We wanted to make everyone’s discovery of this moment special.” Click here to read the full statement from the band.
Mesmer follows on from their critically and commercially successful album Node (2015), which raced straight to the top of the ARIA Chart, debuting at #1 and landing them the ARIA Award for Best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal Album. Node scored the coveted feature album on triple j, a guest host spot on iconic ABC television program Rage and two Blunt Magazine covers in six months. Alternative Press nominated Northlane for the ‘Best New Band’ award at the 2015 APMAs and they earned a third Metal Hammer Golden Gods nomination for ‘Best Breakthrough Artist’ in 2016, shaping Northlane into one of the most successful Australian heavy music exports today.
The rest of 2017 will see Northlane take Mesmer to all corners of the globe, starting with a tour of South East Asia and an appearance on Hammersonic (Indonesia). After that Northlane will return to Australia for a headline tour that wraps up with the band playing The Big Pineapple Festival as one of the main acts alongside Birds of Tokyo, The Veronicas and Peking Duck.
Northlane will hit international festival stages throughout the rest of 2017 with appearances on the main stage at Download Festival (UK) and Hellfest (France). The band will also appear at Vainstream Rockfest (Germany), Jera On Air (Netherlands), Graspop (Belgium), Dissonance Festival (Italy), Rock For People (Czech Republic), Resurrection (Spain) and many more.
