My Epic have released the first single from their upcoming EP “Viscera.” which will be released on May 6th through Facedown Records. Check out ‘Ghost Story’ featuring Shane Ochsner of Everything In Slow Motion below.
The captivating new release from My Epic sees the band building on the pivotal momentum of previous releases while still treading new ground musically and thematically. With “Viscera,” My Epic reference the Latin term for the inner organs as the thread that runs through the tracks. The aspect of each song alluding to a human emotion tied to physicality makes“Viscera,” My Epic’s most heavily themed release to date.
Musically “Viscera” takes elements from the band’s more ambient, ethereal spirit of “Behold,” and adds to them the post-rock, grunge influenced groove of “Yet,” which floods the EP with heaviness. Songs grow large on “Viscera” and leave lots of room to explore the human conditions of fear and courage, comprehension, and even memory loss. “Viscera” is the first in a series of annual EPs, each of which will be supported with a tour.
Pre orders for “Viscera” are available with two limited edition vinyl options.
