Two years in the making, THE NIGHT WATCH unleashes their second album, Boundaries, a single thirty-six-minute piece of dynamic sound. Shifting seamlessly from intricate technicality to soaring atmospheres, crushing heaviness to delicate melancholy, this fluid composition never loses itself within the landscapes it explores. THE NIGHT WATCH are storytellers through sound and Boundaries is a powerful exploration of just how emotional instrumental music can be.
The Canadian progressive instrumental quartet features guitarist Nathanael Larochette and violinist Evan Runge of Musk Ox. Since releasing its acclaimed 2013 self-titled debut, THE NIGHT WATCH has proven themselves a creative and evolving musical force, allowing genres to act as mere sign posts on their sonic journeys. Having performed alongside progressive titans such as Unexpect, Leprous, and Trioscapes, THE NIGHT WATCH continues to carve their own ever-shifting space in the world of forward reaching music. Whether you choose to head-bang, meditate, mosh, or groove, let THE NIGHT WATCH paint with sound while your ears take in the view.
Boundaries will be self-released on July 15th and available at the official THE NIGHT WATCH Bandcamp page at THIS LOCATION.
