Ukrainian Post-Black Metal band Ukraine White Ward have just released a brand new single from their upcoming album, "False Light", which is due for release on the 17th of June via Debemur Morti Productions. The new song, titled "Leviathan", is the album's appropriately named 13-minute long opening track. Check it out:

 


The label commented on the inspiration for the album and what listeners can expect music-wise:

Always surprising and never less than captivating, from a base of rhythmically creative, furiously melodic Black and Death Metal the band shape-shift through a vivid suite of songs-as-journeys: seamlessly utilising hues of brass-led darkjazz and stately post-rock, foregrounding the evocative contributions of guesting clean vocalists in passages redolent of gothic Americana/post-punk and integrating virtuosic guitar leads, textural electronics and atmospheric sample-work.

Heavily conceptual and rich with meaning, the 8 dystopian tracks use overarching inspiration from "Intermezzo", a 1908 impressionistic novel by the Ukrainian author Mykhailo Kotsubinsky - in addition to works by Beat-writer Jack Kerouac and psychoanalyst Carl Jung – to explore government-sanctioned murders, imminent environmental catastrophes, police brutality, domestic abuse, the psychic emptiness of cities, falsity of modern mainstream culture and ill-effects of overconsumption.

"False Light" is a multi-layered success story – perfectly balancing tension and traction, restraint and resurgence, fatalism and focus into an indispensable record from a stunning band at the top of their game.


"False Light" will mark the band's third full-length album, and features the following tracklist:

  1. Leviathan
  2. Salt Paradise
  3. Phoenix
  4. Silence Circles
  5. Echoes in Eternity
  6. Cronus
  7. False Light
  8. Downfall


The album is now available for pre-order in digital, cassette, digipack CD or double gatefold vinyl LP formats from the Debemur Morti Productions EU or NA stores, or alternatively via the band's official Bandcamp page:
