Head Cage is due out September 7th on CD/LP/CS/Digital via Relapse Records.

ANCESTORS: LA Based Post Rock Band Streams New Single
The long-awaited, sonically vast Suspended in Reflections LP will be released August 24th via Pelagic Records, and in the meantime, Ancestors is sharing the album opener “Gone”. The track, following the previously released album closer “The Warm Glow,” gives a true sense of melancholy from its heavy riffs and melodic instrumental passages, rounded out with a touch of synthesizer; another step forward for the consistently boundary-pushing, genre-warping band.
Los Angeles’ ANCESTORS create mighty, modern music that dovetails slow, heavy riffs and atmospheric, melodic instrumental passages, exuding a deep sense of melancholy. Six years have passed since the band’s previous album, In Dreams and Time, which came at a transitional and difficult time in each of the band members’ lives. In those six years, the band has slimmed down from a 5-piece to a 3-piece, also adding drummer (Daniel Pouliot of HORSE THE BAND and ex- SILVER SNAKES) to their ranks. This lineup has onsciously taken their time in writing their 5th album. It was surely worth the wait: „Suspended in Reflections“ is a culmination of everything the band have accomplished thus far. It feels like ANCESTORS have finally arrived at their own,right place.
„I think that as songwriters we’ve grown exponentially over the past six years“, comments guitarist and vocalist Justin Maranga... „but the most important change was the removal of ego from the writing and recording process. We tried to step out from behind our respective instruments to write the best album we could. We made a beautiful record as a team.“
