Canadian rock quintet Rarity are back with brand new music, marking their first new material since their 2019 full-length 'The Longest Lonesome'. Recent singles, the catchy 'Leave It Alone' and emotion-fuelled 'Worn Down', show two different sides of Rarity, but both are equally captivating in their own way. We caught up with vocalist/guitarist Corbin Giroux to talk about his first musical memory, the band's influences, aims and more.
The saying goes “all good things comes to those who wait”, and that particular expression has never seemed more appropriate than when it comes to Black Crown Initiate. There have been plenty of issues that have befallen the band over their brief history, including number of line-up changes where they are still searching for a permanent drummer even now - but with the leap to a new permanent home with Century Media Records, the band look hungrier and better backed than ever. Now with Black Crown Initiate in their strongest position to date and the extreme metal world eagerly watching and waiting, the big question is… has the wait been worth it?
