SONS OF ALPHA CENTAURI: BrooklynVegan Premieres Title Track To Pull LP; Fourth Album From Post-Hardcore Act Featuring Far And Will Haven Members Nears March 28th Release Via Exile On Mainstream Records

“…spacey, atmospheric post-hardcore…” – BrooklynVegan

BrooklynVegan is hosting an exclusive premiere of “Pull,” the title track to the fourth LP by UK/US-based post-hardcore outfit SONS OF ALPHA CENTAURI – fronted by cult emo icon vocalist Jonah Matranga from post-hardcore legends Far and Gratitude – as the album nears release late this month via Exile On Mainstream Records.

Having previously collaborated with Godflesh, Karma To Burn, Yawning Man, and members of Kyuss, ISIS, and Queens Of The Stone Age, SONS OF ALPHA CENTAURI delivered one the most critically acclaimed alternative metal albums of 2021 with Push, which ranked No. 8 for Metal Hammer’s Top 10 Alternative Metal albums in 2021. MetalSucks proclaimed, “The results are absolutely explosive. Fans of Far, as well as post-hardcore/alternative metal contemporaries like Quicksand, are going to absolutely eat this up.” BrooklynVegan premiered Push’s “Buried Under” single, writing, “A dose of heavy, soaring post-hardcore that really sounds like it could be a new Far song, which is a very good thing to sound like.”

Now, SONS OF ALPHA CENTAURI’s Pull arrives, capturing both a renaissance of 1990s post-hardcore and a future take on atmospheric dream metal. The band is once again joined by drummer Mitch Wheeler – the percussive powerhouse and backbone of Will Haven and founding member of Ghostride and The Abominable Iron Sloth – who together with guitarist Marlon King and bassist Nick Hannon bring a formidable hard rock foundation for Matranga’s emotional and ethereal overlay. Pull depicts the essence of Around The Fur-era Deftones, the simplicity of Water And Solutions-era Far, and the integrity of Will Haven’s Carpe Diem, the hypnotic and harmonic pulse of the music and the soaring introspective power of Jonah’s wrought, raw vocals provide an ever-emotional journey that sees new peaks in performance for all involved.

Pull was recorded by Lance Jackman of Deftones and Joe Johnson at Pus Cavern Studios in Sacramento (Deftones, Dance Gavin Dance, Will Haven), engineered and mixed by Dan Lucas, and mastered by Nick Zampiello at New Alliance East Mastering (Cave In, Converge, Pelican, ISIS).

Founding SONS OF ALPHA CENTAURI bassist Nick Hannon comments, “The pace of ‘Pull’ and the harmonies tied in with Jonah’s soaring vocals is when we knew we were taking it to the next level. This track embodies the natural evolution of the band away from Push and into the new world of Pull! Experience it!”

Jonah Matranga reveals, “When I heard ‘Pull’ for the first time, I instantly imagined myself flying along in some wild machine. The vocals arrived effortlessly. I think the song ended up being about momentum, autonomy, and creativity. Really getting free. All these ways of moving through our external and internal worlds. I hope you turn it way up while riding or driving really fast, or taking off in a plane, or maybe skydiving. Anything disorienting.”

BrooklynVegan writes with the song’s debut, “Like Push, these new songs find SONS OF ALPHA CENTAURI really leaning into the spacey, atmospheric post-hardcore that Far and Will Haven are best known for, and Jonah’s voice suits this kind of stuff with the same soaring sense of urgency that it did in the ’90s.”
