Caspian have released their latest album, ahead of a UK tour that kicks off in London at The Dome on 2 November 2015.
‘Dust and Disquiet’, the atmospheric rock band’s fourth full-length album, comes three years after ‘Waking Season’ and again transcends genres.
‘Run Dry’ is a stark, acoustic ballad that showcase the vocals of guitarist Calvin Joss, ‘Ríoseco’ takes a country detour and ‘Aeternum Vale’ explores the classical realm, while tracks like ‘Sad Heart of Mine’ and ‘Arcs of Command’ find the Massachusetts six-piece creating more of their signature textured soundscapes.
“The last two years have been a relentless whirlwind in many ways and we wanted to try and write a song that captured the intense end of that spectrum,” the group say of ‘Arcs of Command’. “We threw the kitchen sink into this track, no regrets, full-tilt.”
They’re not kidding about being busy. After releasing ‘Waking Season’ in 2012, they returned with the EP ‘Hymn for the Greatest Generation’ just over a year later. After supporting these two releases with hundreds of shows in 25 countries, the group returned to their hometown on 18 October 2014 to celebrate “Caspian Day” and their tenth anniversary with a show at Beverly’s Larcom Theatre. Months later, they were back in the studio with producer Matt Bayles to record what’s now available as ‘Dust and Disquiet’.
