We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Ambassador’s new song “Feral As They Were” (listen below). The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming debut album Belly of the Whale, which is scheduled to be released on September 28, 2018.
The band commented on the song:
‘Feral’ is themed around a predator/prey relationship where a metaphorical herd seeks refuge from a pursuant beast. These types of simple dichotomies are subtly presented throughout the album to elicit certain imagery and encourage personal interpretation. The song offers a glimpse of some of the slightly darker moments; keeping in line with the gloomy yet optimistic tone found throughout.
About the band:
Ambassador is a dark post-punk band from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Eluding the stale tropes of modern rock, Ambassador evokes a sense of maturity and sonic exploration but with their emotional and vulnerable sounds remaining rooted in post rock, progressive metal and southern blues. The band has been compared to groups like Dredg, Pink Floyd and A Perfect Circle, featuring introspective and ethereal lyrics supported by concise grooves all defined by an ominous sense of melody. Each composition exposes new colors and textures with its own distinct energy.
Existing as outcasts with no true ‘scene’ and playing to mixed genre bills, Ambassador have won over a unique blend of fans. From doom metal freaks to heavy hearted hipsters, Ambassador can impress them all. These lifelong musicians have entered the vast sonic ocean to help swell the tide of a new alternative. Their sense of creative freedom and lack of pressure to conform is evident throughout their sound. As you navigate these musical landscapes one thing is increasingly clear…Ambassador are unique, rebellious, seasoned, and secure.
Since launching, Ambassador have played a number of shows across the region including opening for living legends like Today is the Day and Pop Evil as well as making a name for themselves in the dive bars that pepper their beloved Bayou State. The band is currently working hard promoting their debut album Belly of the Whale – a cavernous musical quest fusing heart rending doom, shoegazing aesthetics, and a deepset pop sensibility. The band is currently booking a tour in support of the record planned for early 2019.
