BAND TOURING WITH ERRA, ALPHA WOLF, AND THORNHILL THIS SUMMER

Progressive metalcore head-turners INVENT ANIMATE have dropped their brand new single “Shade Astray.” Listen here.

The song cycles through many moods, tempos, and extremes in the space of five minutes. It’s a sonic journey that leaves the listener breathless and thrilled. It examines love lost and the difficulty in accepting that you’ve reached the point of no return.

“‘Shade Astray’ is a confessional realization that a relationship has run its course,” shares drummer Trey Celaya. “It admits that it fell far from the ideal they had put on a pedestal, leaving both their ego and the relationship shattered when things are broken beyond repair. At this crossroads, the loss you fear the most is exactly what has to happen. Someone stronger than you has to be able to walk away when you are self-sabotaging. And the only wisdom to be gained is the knowledge that you are not the savior. There’s nothing to be salvaged and you must accept failure and let failure be your teacher. It’s a lesson only learned in solitude.”

“Shade Astray” will appear on the band’s forthcoming album, due out next year. It follows The Sun Sleeps, As If It Never Was EP, which arrived last year and marked the band’s UNFD debut. To date, the EP has tallied over 2 million streams. The 2020-released full-length Greyview has topped 10 million streams, as well.

Invent Animate will return to the road this summer with labelmates ERRA and Thornhill. Alpha Wolf will also appear. All dates are below.
