Conquer Divide are the result of what happens when you cross borders in pursuit of something bigger than you. Hailing from the USA, Canada and the UK, the transatlantic quintet have been turning heads and making them bang for the last few years. Now, a new record is coming, and it’s set to send them stratospheric.
That record is called Slow Burn and will be released on September 8th via Mascot Records. The artwork looks like this:
And the tracklisting like this:
02. “N E W H E A V E N”
07”. playing w/ fire”
08”. Over It.”
10. “the INVISIBLE”
11. “wide awake”
They have also shared a new track, and it is a vital belter. It’s “welcome2paradise” and is hard rock, metalcore and pure pop-rock wrapped all up together into a beautiful little package. Silky smooth one minute, gritty and gripping the next, it’s a brilliant example of the highs and lows that Conquer Divide are able to reach. Oh, and the breakdown is going to get the pits spinning in no time.
Guitarist Kristen Sturgis had this to say about it:
“This song is special to all of us for a lot of reasons. We really wanted to stretch our musical muscles and play around with time signatures. We recorded some of the production ourselves, including drilling sounds you’ll hear sprinkled throughout the song. Artistically, we really stepped out of our comfort zone and we ended up with something really special.”
