THE CONTORTIONIST has announced that they will release their new album, “Intrinsic”, on July 17th via eOne/Good Fight Music.
About the album, vocalist/keyboardist Jonathan Carpenter states:
On Intrinsic, we’ve found ourselves focusing on the songwriting as well as the new textures and melody we’re striving for. Each song has its own identity and flow, but the album is fun to listen through in order cause of the conceptual ties.
