Day of Departure
Release: 25 March 2022
Day Of Departure, from Washington D.C are releasing a debut album this year. An intriguing blend of ambient, prog and post-rock, the band combines that with a well-woven story that tells of the destruction of our planet, and then the need to evolve and find a new path forward for survival.
The album is intended to take the listener on a journey from utter destruction and despair to a place where there is a new consciousness and reality that will break this unending cycle. The music is intended to provide a wide range of dynamics and atmospheres to elicit an understanding and a vibe for where the listener is within the narrative. The music aims to juxtapose intense sonic blasting with lush and delicate atmospheres.
Coined “Post-rock-alypse with vocals”, Day of Departure is recommended for fans of Lacuna Coil, Cult of Luna and Hammock.
Day of Departure combines elements of post-rock, ambient, progressive rock, and hard rock to arrive at a unique sonic landscape that seeks to balance the varied influences and inspirations from its creators.
Born out of a desire to explore a different musical style that merges their influences with a well-woven narrative, Washington D.C.’s Day of Departure created a story that begins with the destruction of our planet, and then the need to evolve and find a new path forward for survival. They are heavily influenced by a number of different sci-fi stories and comics that echo throughout their music.
Their debut self-titled album is set to be released on March 25, 2022. It was produced and recorded entirely remotely over two years with none of the members working together in person. They currently do not have any plans to play live at the moment, but are looking forward to thinking about how to bring to life the music and vibe that was created on the record.
While writing their debut, several songs didn’t make the cut, yet Day of Departure are already thinking about the next chapter to explore, with some of those songs/ideas being the inspiration or perhaps even the focus of forthcoming music.
