Here at RNL towers we have been privileged to have a preview of the new single from Fractions , Soundness of Mind.
Soundness of mind, the brand new single from Fractions,
Vocalist , Chris Hare explains what the single is about,
“Soundness of mind” delves into paranoia, that ever present nagging feeling that everyone is scheming behind your back, the feeling that your life is almost like a play, nothing is real and everyone is fake. The feeling that even those you hold close are secretly laughing at you. But it’s all in your head, and you need to realise this in order to change”
The single is a slab of prog-metal, featuring some killer riffs and shows a level of musicality that is second to none.
Towards the end of 2016, Fractions began recording their self-produced 5-track EP ‘Forces’ which was released in the Summer of 2017, making several reviewer’s top ten list’s when compiling their EP year end reviews.
Fractions reached the final of Leicester’s Metal 2 the Masses 2017 which was held on the main stage at the iconic De Montfort Hall, as part of the 2017 ‘Uprising Festival’. Playing to a strong audience, their show was met with critical acclaim. Guitarist Chris Johnson was awarded best guitarist of the competition and received an endorsement with Stone Wolf guitars for his efforts.
Later in the summer of ‘17 the band joined the Enso Management roster, progressing on to play numerous dates around the country supporting both underground & recognised artists, with the most notable being Raging Speedhorn. The pinnacle of 2017 was the band achieving a main support slot call up for tech- metal heavyweights Tesseract on their late summer Russia dates.
The band have been added to the Vocalzone, Newtone strings and London Drumstick Co’s rosters of artists, completed a UK headline tour in May & performed at TECH-FEST UK 18’ receiving great reviews. 2019 sees them releasing new material and more tours being planned.
