Invidia has teamed up with Metal Insider to give another taste of what’s in store on its debut album, As The Sun Sleepts. Today, the band is streaming the title track off the record, which is set to drop March 3 via Steamhammer/SPV. Fans can listen now, here.
When asked about “As the Sun Sleeps,” guitarist and founding member Brian Jackson said: “I’m really happy we decided to release ‘As the Sun Sleeps.’ This track is honestly one of my personal favorites, and it’s the absolute opposite of what we just released with our last single, ‘Feed the Fire,’ which is more of a heavy rock radio-friendly song. It shows that the record has to offer a very diverse range and can be on the heavier side of things. ‘As the Sun Sleeps’ is really guitar riff-oriented with pounding drums and heavy breakdowns. I think the metal heads will be pleasantly surprised once they hear this track.”
Earlier this year, the band premiered its first music video for lead single “Feed the Fire.” Since the release, the group has garnered much attention from fans and critics alike, leading it to a victory in Loudwire’s “Most Anticipated Release of March” poll. The band was able to overcome some major competition from Body Count, Art of Anarchy, Mastodon andBush. Additionally, the band performed at the first kilPOP Awards alongside Five Finger Death Punch and has been featured in AntiHero Magazine, AXS, Cryptic Rock, Pure Grain Audio, Tattoo.com, Team Rock and many more.
In addition to Jackson, a former member of Skinlab, Invidia features In This Moment bassist Travis Johnson on vocals, former Five Finger Death Punch bassist Matt Snell, guitarist Marcos Medina and drummer Darren Badorine.
