Brisbane post-hardcore act Deadlights are having a great time lately. From the upcoming release of their highly anticipated album, Mesma, to their recent shows supporting big guns like Every Time I Die, Letlive, Silverstein, Polaris and Void of VIsion, the four piece can do no wrong.
Carefully crafting their unique music and electrifying live show, their signature sound hasn't been rushed. For the past 9 years, Dylan Davidson, Tynan Reibelt and Joshua O'Callaghan have been moving step by step toward where they want to be. With the recent addition of Sean Prior, they've now found themselves well and truly on the path to success.
Recently signing with Greyscale Records, joining a growing roster that includes Graves and Belle Haven, the band are on the cusp of releasing their new album, having counted down with daily snippets of the album on their facebook page for nearly two weeks. Combined with the videos of behind the scenes as they've recorded the album, the tension they've built up for the release is brilliant.
The three singles released from the album, 'Mad Scientist', 'Invisible Hands' and 'Attitude & Longitude' have been released to high praise, with 'Invisible Hands' having 41, 974 plays on Spotify at the time of writing this article. Further pumping up the anticipation, the band also dropped an intriguing video for the ridiculously tight 'Mad Scientist', which you can watch below.
Recorded at Loose Stones Studio with Andy Marsh of Thy Art Is Murder, Mesma will be released on April 21st, with pre-orders available now, further information below. Deadlights will celebrate their new release with an album launch on April 21st at Crowbar, before hitting the road with labelmates Belle Haven, and fellow supports Ambleside on the 'Selfmade' Australia tour, further details below.
Have a listen to their stuff, and check them out at one of their upcoming shows. Definitely one of Australia's most promising up and comers.
