Australia’s smoked-out, psychedelic doom-droners Adrift for Days are back!
Two years after the release of their acclaimed debut album "The Lunar Maria", comes Adrift for Days’ latest meditation; "Come Midnight...", an ambitious, 71-minute concept album that draws influence from Earth, Jimi Hendrix, YOB, The Doors, Neurosis, Pink Floyd, Rosetta and Boris.
On "Come Midnight...", Adrift for Days have retained the smoky, psychedelic, heaviness that they’ve become known for, while also ambitiously expanding their sound. This sprawling album incorporates elements of doom, drone, stoner, sludge, blues, ambience, psychedelic rock, and post-metal. As a result, the album as a whole is hard to pin down to a single style or genre.
The concept behind “Come Midnight…” is grounded in an existential search for meaning in a universe that at times can seem pitiless and indifferent. Indeed, the album’s jacket features the epigraph:
“The only journey is the one within.”
– Rainer Maria Rilke
This is not a simplistic glorification of drug-taking; nor is it an album that falls into the trappings of vague, occultist worship. “Come Midnight…” is an intense, dynamic and deeply personal album that takes you for a nightmarish trek into the depths of man’s soul. It the soundtrack for journeyers, for seekers, and for wanderers engaged in their own search. We sincerely hope you enjoy it.
For best results, listen while in the throes of a mescalin binge and lost in the pitiless freeze of the desert night air. Further information:
