ERRA hitting us with one last peek into their forthcoming S/T album with new single and video “Shadow Autonomous.” Ironically ERRA considers “Shadow Autonomous” as the album’s ballad track. Check it out below:
Guitarist Jesse Cash explains, “It’s one of the more experimental tracks on the record in terms of style and structure. ‘Shadow Autonomous’ is about adaptability. ‘Complacencies that we will never seek to replace’, establishes the solution of the song’s proposed problem – which is to live outside of your comfort zone often, and as a result, develop the skill of finding home wherever you are.”
“Shadow Autonomous” is available today across all digital retailers via UNFD. Next week sees the release of ERRA’s highly awaited S/T album and you can check out Tuesday, March 23, ERRA join Reddit’s /metalcore board for a live AMA starting at 4PM PDT.

Determination and steadfast dedication have defined ERRA’s path, forging a unique connection with an ever-growing audience, without the advantages of traditional recognition. On their career-defining fifth studio album ERRA, the band confront depression, anxiety and desperation throughout. They take listeners on a near-out-of-body journey to Aokigahara, the infamous Suicide Forest of Japan; into episodic storytelling that would make Black Mirror writers proud; and into the literary works of Cormac McCarthy and Hubert Selby Jr.
ERRA was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Grammy-nominated duo Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland. It’s a definitive mission statement for Cash, vocalist J.T. Cavey, drummer Alex Ballew, bassist Conor Hesse, and guitarist Sean Price, each of them already well-respected players revered for their inspiring technicality and raw, natural talent.
Rising from Alabama, ERRA’s dedicated fanbase and online community organized around the band’s dense music and heady but relatable lyrics have helped further their mission, resulting in multiple No. 1 Heatseekers placements on Billboard. Previous ERRA albums Impulse (2012), Augment (2013), Drift (2016), and Neon (2018) saw the band spotlighted on tastemaker playlists, as the band’s Spotify plays soared past 72 million. And with vigorous worldwide tours under their belt, ERRA have rightfully earned a sprawling audience devoted to the Alabamians’ catalog, eager for each new missive.
As their music finds the balance between the crushingly heavy and the headily melodic, its members seek to find harmony between the needs of the individual and the natural flow of this shared reality. ERRA, as a band of brothers and creative force, strive to live in alignment with the present moment. ERRA, the album, represents redemption for the band, who emerged from the creative process with renewed focus, confidence, and certainty of self.
