Ambient experimental rockers OUR CEASING VOICE premiere new track; announce new vocalist

OUR CEASING VOICE
Austrian ambient rockers OUR CEASING VOICE have announced a new singer and a new album “Free Like Tonight”, teased by a new atmospheric single “Gone”. Check it out below and scroll down to see more details, including the band’s upcoming touring schedule in September, featuring shows in Europe and China!

OUR CEASING VOICE have always thrived on change. At the heart of their new sound are vocals as distinctive as the music itself: dark and poetic, dramatic and brave. It’s a soundtrack for late hours of long summer nights. Music for the times when every kiss goodbye seems too brief, and when farewells still bear the hope of sweet reunion.

Lyrics:

you forgot where it began
but I will show you how it ends
you forgot where it began
but trust me
I will show you how it ends

and once you know the end
you cannot just pretend
that what was gone was already gone
’cause this is it

you forgot where, how and when
but it’s like the fall of man
one could say that it began
with just one wrong you can’t amend

and once you know the end
you cannot just pretend
that what was gone was already gone
and this is it
and we can‘t take back
all the things we‘ve said
’cause what is done is done

you can’t know what courage is
unless you’ve felt discouraged too
I thought this whole thing through
and couldn’t find a way
so this is me
losing heart again

and once you know the end
we cannot just pretend
that what was gone was already gone
and this is it
this truly is it
and we can‘t take back
all the things we‘ve said
’cause what is done is done

and we can‘t, we won‘t take back
all the things we said
cause what is done and what is gone is gone
no, we can‘t, we won‘t take back
all the things we said
and just like that, just like that, you‘re gone

More about the band:

What could easily have been the end for Our Ceasing Voice, actually turned out to be a new beginning. Guitarist Sebastian Obermeir and drummer Markus Rappold were about to do as the other bandmates had done, and simply give up. The biggest change a band ever fathom, however, ended up bringing new life to Our Ceasing Voice: they hired a new singer. Now, with the vocals of Dominik Dörfer, Our Ceasing Voice leave their post-rock roots behind. At the heart of their new sound are vocals as distinctive as the music itself: dark and poetic, dramatic and brave.

Since their inception in 2006, Our Ceasing Voice have released two full-length albums and multiple EPs. They have played countless shows across Europe, and have won fans and critical acclaim worldwide. But despite all the success the band has had, everyday life always fnds a way to complicate things. The bandmates all live in different cities, and they write and rehearse their music only online. „We had lost the feeling of being a band“, explains band leader Sebastian Obermeir. „I came to accept that we had to call it quits… until I had heard that low, raspy voice for the frst time. It was clear to me: that’s how Our Ceasing Voice have to sound; that’s how we can go on.“

The new album „Free Like Tonight“ may be the Austrian ambient rock band’s boldest one yet. It was created in times of uncertainty, but it shows a determination previously cached by the band. The music is catchier, more structured, and more concise. At the same time, Our Ceasing Voice retain the melancholic vibe that has been a crucial part of their sound up to this point – a vibe that may always be with them.

Lyrically, the alleged end also left its mark on the band. On „Free Like Tonight“, Our Ceasing Voice deal with the end of youth, of relationships and of friendships. But like the bandmates themselves, the protagonists of their songs know this all too well: some things are too precious to let go.

„Free Like Tonight“ is an album for the late hours of long summer nights, just before the crackling embers of the bonfre go quiet. Music for moments when every kiss goodbye seems too brief, and when farewells still bear the hope of sweet reunion. They’re songs for the end of times that celebrate the feeling of freedom without acknowledging the end as such. After all, the end might just turn out to be a new beginning.
