Midwestern shoegazers Chrome Waves have announced their upcoming third album, The Rain Will Cleanse, out September 10 through Transcending Records and Disorder Recordings.
Watch the David Jaggar-directed video for the band’s latest single, “Wind Blown,” below:
Compromised of members hailing from across the Midwest, Chrome Waves’ current, four-piece line-up entails founder Jeff Wilson (Deeper Graves, ex-Nachtmystium), James Benson (Amiensus, Comatose), Dustin Boltjes (Demiricous, ex-Skeletonwitch), and Zion Meagher (Anti-Human Thesis, ex-Nachtmystium).
With six new songs further exploring the band’s blend of shoegaze/art rock-inspired post-black metal, The Rain Will Cleanse is the band’s boldest and most vibrant recording to date.
Recorded at Postal Recording by Tyler Watkins and Disorder Recordings by Jeff Wilson, and mixed and mastered by Watkins at Postal, The Rain Will Cleanse is completed with cover artwork by Rebecca Dunski.
On the release of “Wind Blown,” Benson states:
“I approached this song a bit like I was trying to write a love song in 1985. Of course, my mind was on the late, great George Michael while writing about lost love during the process. It was quite simple to write with that in mind.”
