EBONIVORY vocalist Charlie Powlett says of the track; “‘Explosions After Dark’ is an escalation of aggression for EBONIVORY; it represents the darkest edge of our sound spectrum. We’re excited to be releasing something brimming with chaotic emotions and soundscapes, mirroring the unheard stories that brought us to where we are today. Although initially written several years ago, its lyrical nature only became more relevant as time went on; dealing with issues such as differentiation and cruelty through the lens of modern science fiction. We’re hoping that fans, old and new, allow these crashing auditory waves to wash over them and feel the chilling multiplex of themes hidden in this song’s depths.”

‘Explosions After Dark’ is taken from EBONIVORY‘s upcoming new album, more details to be announced soon.  

The last twelve months have seen EBONIVORY rise through the progressive ranks to become a commanding live act. A whirlwind performance at Australia’s acclaimed PROGFEST, alongside international heavyweights The Ocean (Germany), Monuments (UK) and Skyharbor (India/USA) kicked off 2019 in a big way for the Victoria, Australia quintet. They then went on to support alt-rock powerhouse Dead Letter Circus and traversed the country with progressive rock juggernaut Circles for their The Winter Tour. 

The band’s singles ‘Patting the Black Dog’ and ‘Tales Of Termina’ landed coverage with PROG Magazine (UK), Triple J’s The Racket, Spotify’s Homegrown + Heavy Playlist, and Rage. EBONIVORY are currently touring Australia with fellow prog-scene mates Glass Ocean and in May head to the US and Canada with prog rock outfit Caligula’s Horse and US hard-hitters Moon Tooth for a 26 date tour.
