OBSERVIST - Release "Atlas" Single/Video From Debut EP "From The Ashes"

Melbourne metalcore outfit Observist are quickly making themselves known in the Australian heavy music scene. Today, they announce the arrival of their second single, a new track that is probably most aptly described as a 'djent ballad'. The single premiered on the radio on Tuesday night with Lochlan Watt on triple j's The Racket!

New single 'Atlas' will be released on Friday, May 21st, and will be able to be be purchased/streamed at https://ditto.fm/atlas-observist.

Pre-Orders/Pre-Saves for their debut EP 'From The Ashes', out on Friday, June 4th, are open now at https://ditto.fm/from-the-ashes-observist.

The band had this to say about the new track, "This song is a ballad that showcases the realisation of self worth when everything is against you and accepting the past is past and the future can grow into whatever you want it to be. You don't have to conform to the idea that it's never going to get better, question everything, take that journey. Realise things have to change and for things to get better you have to make it better. You have it in you to believe you are more than what you think of yourself."

The emotional video was Directed by Martin Wood, the Behind the Scenes Photography was shot by Jayden Pitts. The track 'Atlas' and the EP as a whole was Recorded and Mixed by Kye Blomeley (Nicolas Cage Fighter) & Mastered by Forrester Savell (Dead Letter Circus, COG, Karnivool, Make Them Suffer, Caligula's Horse, Twelve Foot Ninja).

The Melbourne metalcore outfit wanted to make a statement with their initial release of music and as such, the band says that the 'From The Ashes' EP symbolises "...rebirth, rising up from what we once were to reveal something even greater. This is more than just a chance to show everyone what we've been working on, this is our chance to start anew. Exploring a vast array of topics and themes throughout; no matter who you are we hope there is a track within this record that connects with a whole bunch of people."

Observist's debut EP 'From The Ashes' will be released on Friday June 4th and can be pre-ordered from Friday April 9 onwards at https://ditto.fm/from-the-ashes-observist. New single 'Atlas' can be purchased/streamed at https://ditto.fm/atlas-observist.
