Bison is back and for a little taste of their next album, “You Are Not The Ocean You Are The Patient” here’s a new tracl that you can listen to it below.
Set for release in Europe on June 23rd followed by a North American release on July 7TH, the crushing new offering follows the band’s 2014-issued “1000 Needles” EP and serves as their first full-length to include bassist Shane Clark, former lead guitarist of 3 Inches Of Blood, who joined the band following their Lovelessness full-length (2012, Metal Blade).
It was important that the songs fit together to tell a bit of a story, relays guitarist and vocalist James Farwell, a story of a new life and escaping the city, while still being tethered to it. Life is a constant fight, and though I have taken the fight to a more natural and beautiful place, that struggle persists. This is an album of daily living. It is for everyone.
BISON‘s “You Are Not The Ocean You Are The Patient” was captured in the band’s hometown with long time friend Jesse Gander at Rain City Recorders. I wanted to also steep myself in music that was not necessarily heavy in the obvious sense, Farwell continues, so I was listening to lots of blues while writing the album: Peter Green, Muddy Waters, and Howlin’ Wolf. There was also lots of instrumental rock music playing on my long commutes to Vanceouver for work and rehearsals.
