Coastlands: Lay Waste

Heavy post rockers, Coastlands, are preparing for the release of their next album, Death, which is set for release on October 9th, 2020 through Translation Loss in the US and Dunk! Records in Europe. Lay Waste is the first single off the album, produced by Kurt Ballou (Converge, Russian Circles) and Magnus Lindberg (Cult Of Luna), and it comes paired to a very much creative and cinematic video created and produced by Robby Krings.

A couple of years after their excellent previous effort, The Further Still, the Portland band return with something that feels a bit more ominous and bent toward the darker and heavier aspect of post rock, with the cinematic and atmospheric properties in full display. Lay Waste is a captivating seven-minute paragon, with an engaging structure that goes through different paces and dynamics, to ultimately leave the impression of something profoundly emotive and formidable.

Lay Waste is about those turning point moments where you realize that despite your current circumstances, you can see a clear path to change,” the band explain. “This song is about destroying yourself first (internal conflicts) and moving outward to more physically harmful and poisonous relationships. Sometimes, in order to truly move on you must burn bridges.
