Welsh progressive metal quintet CONTINENTS are pleased to announce their new single ‘Preacher’. This single is as hard hitting as it gets; full of new groove and hooks to get your teeth sunk into. For fans of Northlane, While She Sleeps and Architects, CONTINENTS are not holding back and have grown as a band with this new material. Having used to be branded with the ‘hardcore’ genre, their sound has progressed and evolved, with this new material arguably their best to date.
Over the last twelve months the band have been focusing on making decisions since they parted ways with Victory Records in late 2016. After having numerous managers and agents approach them, the band decided to go back to their roots and make themselves in charge going forward.
This summer they played to sold out crowds in Germany, France and the UK, where the band realised there was still a huge hunger from their fanbase for some new material. So, they took some time out and have returned with explosive new track ‘Preacher’, as a taster of what’s to come from the band in 2018.
“Since the arrival of our two new members Tim and Scott and parting ways with the label, we are back in a position to make decisions ourselves. Our aim is to be back touring, tearing up stages and creating great memories again, with our new EP expected in the beginning of 2018.” – Phil Cross, Continents
