BURN have teamed up with Kerrang magazine to premiere a new track called “Mountain”, one of the two tracks recorded in January 2018, available on a limited EP, available via The Essence label, at the band’s merch table on their upcoming European tour with GUST! Check out the new track below.
BURN‘s guitarist Gavin Van Vlack commented:
We really wanted to deliver something that was aggressive in the way that Burn does aggression. It meant peeling back a lot of layers to make things feel more raw, There was a certain ‘anger, frustration and eventual release’ feeling that we wanted to capture and I feel that comes across in this.
Frontman Chaka Malik adds:
Mountain is about the shadow in us all and the challenges it takes us on as we climb and descend jaggedly through life towards some type of enlightenment. Often times what triggers us most is the ammunition we need to win. It’s about looking yourself in the eye, and seeing the mountain in the shadow of your being. Only then can the climb towards true love begin.
Burn’s message is one of self awareness, self discernment, and overall positive growth! We as a society have become so dialed out of our humanity that we as a species now need to escape the mass thought paradigm. This disengagement is a key way that we as individuals can assess what we really believe to be true to ourselves.
