CHRONOGRAPHS release new single

British progressive / math rockers from CHRONOGRAPHS have just unveiled their new single “Losing Light”! The quintet from Worcestershire, UK have taken a huge change in direction from their tech-metal beginnings to where they are now. This new song right here is the first single in a schedule which plans to see CHRONOGRAPHS release a new track each month for the next 12 months.

Lyrics:

When the curtain falls,
Lights up but I’m pinned to my seat,
Trapped in the space between these walls.
This tired body is weak,
I never thought I’d bury this,
but despite the weather, I’m getting better.

Sharing skin, stretched taut over too many bones.
Breathe it in, that welcome warmth for cold throats.
Emotional drought (crawl out from the wreckage),
Loathing self-doubt (and tend to your wounds).
Hide it away, and bandage the pain.

Tried my best to see the light,
but I’m so sick of these polarised emotions.
I’ve been running West for hours now,
but still not getting any closer.
To the end of things, the final call,
moving on, and letting go.
I’m turning back the hourglass,
I’m trying to make the most of this.

When the curtain falls,
Lights up but I’m pinned to my seat,
Trapped in the space between these walls.
This tired body is weak,
I never thought I’d bury this,
but despite the weather, I’m getting better.

With the distance still growing,
All that’s left hangs over me.
Every night that I sleep,
Watching it play on repeat.
So with each day that goes on,
I’ll watch it drift away.
Until I’m safe,
When I’m awake.

When the curtain falls,
Lights up but I’m pinned to my seat,
Trapped in the space between these walls.
This tired body is weak,
I never thought I’d bury this,
but despite the weather, I’m getting better.

CHRONOGRAPHS first hit the scene in 2010 with the online release of free EP, “The Outhouse Sessions”, creating a huge online buzz and demand for the live show, quickly prompting a string of headline shows around the UK, and a nationwide tour as main support for Mediaskare’s Hero In Error.

Following their initial wave of underground success, the band set out to write a new record with the intent of further raising the bar in terms of songwriting and technicality, and the resulting “Nausea” EP, has exceed all expectations. Boasting five tracks of raw aggression, fresh, bandwagon-dodging riffery and glorious refrains, this EP is the soundtrack of a band with a burning desire to breathe fresh life into the metal scene and a great taster of things to come.

The EP tracks “Opticks” and “Inanis” both appeared on separate Metal Hammer magazine cover-mounts, receiving an incredible response from fans and readers, creating huge anticipation for “Nausea”.

Following the release of “Nausea” at the beginning of 2013, CHRONOGRAPHS set off around the UK and Europe promoting the release with both tour and festival appearances.

Now into 2014, the band are departing on a new journey. Devoting their time to regular single releases every month, with musical and lyrical content documenting the environment and emotions of the quintet at the time of writing. The new CHRONOGRAPHS material is truthful, long-lasting, and unapologetically honest.
