Before you read this news article any further, let us just point out one thing: this is easily one of the most intense, emotive and satisfyingly riff-laden post-hardcore albums of the year.
The debut album from CANVAS is out today and it absolutely deserves your attention. Initially streamed in full via Punktastic on Wednesday, you can listen to 'Worry' on Spotify, iTunes, Bandcamp or any digital service you prefer! For limited edition vinyl and t-shirt bundles, head to Basick Supplies.
Stoked as we are to have this incredible album released, bassist Jack Rogers comments:
"Today my four closest friends and I put a body of work out into the world that I did not think would ever be possible. I have never been prouder of 10 tracks and never have I worked on anything so emotionally driven that has helped all five of us overcome a lot of personal hurdles. Every single detail musically, artistically and lyrically is there for a reason, nothing has gone overlooked and the final outcome is a feeling I can't even describe.
Like most musicians this craft has become my entire world, my escape and my therapy. I would not be the person I am today without this band and the world I surround myself in. For better or for worse, this is me and this record represents four years of highs, lows & everything in-between. An album for everyone who for feels lost, abandoned or alone. 'Worry' is available everywhere now."
Canvas will be heading out on a UK/EU headline tour from this Saturday - joining the lads for some of the Europe shows will be My Only and Tripsitter.
