Captured live at Red Wall Studios and mastered by legendary Seattle-based engineer Ed Brooks (Pearl Jam, Caspian, Fleet Foxes et al), The Menagerie Inside, the forthcoming new full-length (and third overall) from eclectic UK-based quartet, MIDAS FALL, thrusts forth ten sprawling hymns of sonic alchemy. Set for official unveiling next month via Monotreme Records, the record is at once graceful, urgent; ghostly and compelling; a truly introspective journey where cascading riffs ebb, flow and surge into rich, ethereal piano crescendos, the weight of vocalist Elizabeth Heaton’s angelically melancholic resonance adding depth to her every echoing word. Praised Covering The Scene in a recent investigation of the record, “Heaton could enchant the soul right out of the body into her private ocean of experiences. You may not have lived it, but you’ll feel what she went through. Gaze at your shoes all you want, you’ll eventually succumb to the shimmering light bouncing off the waves, as memories are swept out to sea then crashed to shore broken and shattered.”

With the release of The Menagerie Inside now less than one month away, today Metal Insider offers up the visual accompaniment to the track “Push.” The disquieting clip was directed by Sebastian Juszczyk of Juzz Media and delves into the nightmarish realities of abuse.

Elaborates the band of the creation, “The video is a fraught imagining of a person being both emotionally and physically pushed to their absolute limit, but at the same time unable to divest completely from their cyclical, self-destructive relationship.”

Watch “Push,” now playing at Metal Insider at THIS LOCATION.

You can also sample heaving, emotionally-gutting third movement, “Circus Performer,” currently streaming at Revolver at THIS LOCATION.

Described as, “powerful yet fragile, devastatingly beautiful and beautifully devastating,” by The Founder Magazine, MIDAS FALL has, since their 2009 inception, crafted a distinctive, captivating and wholly immersive sound that merges elements of electronica, post-rock, shoegaze and alternative rock with progressive and gothic undertones into deep shimmering soundscapes led by the haunting vocal oscillations of Heaton. Initially likened to Portishead and Explosions In The Sky upon their initial formation, MIDAS FALL – Heaton alongside Rowan Burn (guitar, piano), Steven Pellatt (drums/percussion/piano) and Chris Holland (bass) – has since cultivated their own unique sound exhibition and continues to transcend genre boundaries with The Menagerie Inside.

The record will be released worldwide September 4th, 2015 on CD and digital download formats, as well as a limited edition 180-gram vinyl LP in translucent purple with black splatter, with a free album CD and poster inside. Organic, stirring and habitually awe-inspiring, fans of Cocteau Twins, Caspian, Daughter, Immanu El, A Perfect Circle, Jenniferever, Aereogramme and Evanescence, pay heed. Preorder the album today at THIS LOCATION.
