The Stratosphere Beneath Our Feet released December 07
Scottish alt-prog rock trio Atlas : Empire are streaming their debut LP The Stratosphere Beneath Our Feet, released today, 7th December.
First premiered via Prog Magazine, you can now stream the album at: https://atlasempire.bandcamp.com or on Spotify: https://sptfy.com/1bsA
The Stratosphere Beneath Our Feet follows Atlas : Empire's succession of three EPs, the last of which is 2015's The Stratosphere Beneath Our Feet Pt. 1 (For The Satellites). Since forming in 2011, the band have toured extensively throughout the UK, EU and through Eastern Canada, including supporting Tiny Moving Parts, The Pineapple Thief, Closure in Moscow, and Good Tiger.
The Stratosphere Beneath Our Feet is a concept record, centralised around humanity’s growing reliance on technology, and how this impacts our ability to have organic interaction and genuine communication. It explores how a society - dehumanised and disconnected - falls into disarray when this reliance is suddenly removed.
Each song is written from a new perspective and the experiences each new person goes through, both before and after this mass technological collapse.
For fans of Arcane Roots, Black Peaks, The Twilight Sad, Press To Meco and more, Atlas : Empire are ready to stake their claim in the next wave of intelligent Scottish alt-rock. Soaring highs meet the lows of melancholia, complemented by figurative guitarwork and highly compelling atmospheric production, creating a highly impressive LP worthy of repeat listens.
