VENUES release new single  'Godspeed, Goodbye' from their upcoming album »Transience«

The sparrows have been chirping it from the rooftops for a while, but now it's official certainty: in 2024, VENUES will unfold to their full size for the first time. And we're all here to witness it live. In short: With their third album »Transience« the band effortlessly shifts the boundaries of what's possible in modern metal, out worldwide on March 29th via Arising Empire!
Adding to their momentous year, VENUES has also released a new single 'Godspeed, Goodbye' out now, further showcasing their evolving sound and musical depth.

After the two strong benchmarks »Aspire« and »Solace« which oscillated somewhere between post-hardcore, alternative metal, and metalcore, the Stuttgart-based band definitively tears down all barriers, boundaries, and bulwarks. »Transience« unleashes an emotional cascade full of grand melodies, visionary soundscapes, abyssal hardness, and raw, unfiltered emotion. This is not just an album. It's catharsis. Medicine for a sick world. The antidote to dreariness, indifference, coldness.

You hear it, you feel it: The ten songs of »Transience« revolve around transience, about farewell, new beginnings, and the inevitability of change, are emotional projectiles that hit exactly where they hurt the most: In our wounded hearts.
Recorded in three creative and harmonious sessions with their regular producer Christoph Wieczorek (Annisokay) at the Sawdust Recordings in Halle, the Stuttgart band's third album carries all the pain of a wounded world within it.
VENUES do not look away, repress nothing, sugarcoat nothing. Yet, they also do not give up on themselves or this world and sing, scream, play against the feeling of powerlessness. They do not close their eyes to toxic relationships ('Unspoken Words'), they channel emotional baggage ('Godspeed, Goodbye'). But VENUES are most moving in their most intimate moments. When Robin addresses his mother's cancer in 'Braille' or Lela sings about captivity in the oppressive 'Coming Home'.

"I have yet to manage to sing this song without crying", she says softly.

Pre-order the new album »Transience« as CD, limited colored vinyl and special fan box, together with unique merch options at the Arising Empire Online Shop!
