Oslo-based sludge/post-hardcore trio KITE are gearing up to release their newest collection of tracks with their fresh LP, Currents, and are sharing the title track, a strutting, ’90s-inspired, groove-heavy number.

The album was recorded at an abandoned pig farm in Hamar, Norway by the band—Ronny Flissundet (vocals, guitars), Bjarne Ryen Berg (drums), Ole Christian Helstad (bass, vocals),—and producer Fredrik Ryberg.

“The team behind Majestic Mountain Records are solid idealists with a true passion for music,” explains Flissundet. “We’ve been truly impressed by the fantastic work they’ve done with the likes of Jointhugger and Draken. Having met them personally at numerous Roadburn Festivals down the years, they just feel like the perfect match for us.”

The title track adds a touch of nerve and madness to the band, who already pride themselves on their intense sound. The song’s themes surround breaking free from destructive patterns, turning fortune around, and not being dragged under by malicious currents.

Currents will be released October 8. Preorder the album here, and listen to “Currents” below:
