MUSIC NEWS: Invent Animate release new single ‘Elysium’
Metal-core rockers Invent Animate are back with new single Elysium. Complete with a new video, the track oscillates between merciless riffs and mellifluous melodies, with lyrics unveiling heartbreaking revelations.
As vocalist, Marcus Vik, confesses, “when my grandfather got sick, I was a 15-year-old boy with no emotional grip on my world. We were close, but his sickness was something I didn’t see. It might’ve been because I didn’t want to see it or that I was too scared. When he passed, I didn’t comprehend the mourning, I didn’t feel it, and that made me feel shame. It took me 12 years to wake up one day and embrace it, and it hit me like a wave of odd emotions that I’ve never felt before. Grief is upon me and this is the story of me looking back, searching my inner self and looking forward.”
Following the release of their EP The Sun Sleeps, As If It Never Was, Invent Animate are set to release their new album next year.
But, until then, Elysium is available HERE and on all streaming platforms.
