Forward-thinking prog-metallers COLD NIGHT FOR ALLIGATORS have just released their new incredible single / video 'Thin Line' on the Arising Empire YouTube channel. 'Thin Line' will be out on all streaming platforms at November 5th.
The new track is taken from their upcoming album »The Hindsight Notes«, due for release on February 4th.
‘Thin Line’ is a track of multiple layers that all work seamlessly together. From the incredible vocal melodies of singer Johan Pedersen, to the heavy progressive riffs that the band are so well known for, ‘Thin Line’ encompasses everything you could want from the band and more. Always continuing to expand and adapt their musical stylings and push things forward, COLD NIGHT FOR ALLIGATORS are raising their profile with each release.
Johan Pedersen explains more about the lyrical content of the single here:
"During the writing of the album, I became a father for the first time under quite dramatic circumstances. It was a time of extreme uncertainty and a huge emotional rollercoaster.
The lyrics for "Thin Line" are about taking a moral inventory during this time and while settling into my new identity as a parent - considering my flaws and past failures, the example I was setting and how to improve. Paradoxically, this was a quite lonely journey, but I found a lot of release creating music and lyrics around it."
"This record is about us growing up and finding ourselves, and this was the quintessential experience for me during the whole process. It's a heavy theme, but I'm very happy with how it came out.
The lyric video mirrors this - there's no quick fix on this topic, so we went for a static, contemplative and tense mood."
