Official press release:
Vancouver, British Columbia-based Neck Of The Woods has completed their debut album, The Passenger, capturing the band’s crushing blend of progressive, death-inspired, technical, and groove-laden metal through nine engaging tracks.
The Passenger will see release through Basick Records in mid-September, and an early dose of the record has been issued through a Decibel Magazine premiere of the lead track, “Bottom Feeder”. Delivered through an animated art video, the band describes the premise of “Bottom Feeder” as:
“Recognizing recurring patterns in relationships that lead to imminent failure and learning to break free from these tropes.”
