» Blog Archive CEREMONY: Share New Single "Presaging The End" -
The Big Kahuna Hard Music, News

Ceremony hit us with their new track “Presaging The End”. Of the single, lyricist and frontman Ross Farrar notes, “Change is a hard topic to unravel. In one version, people don’t like it much because it tampers with original design. But on the other hand, change is something that is a necessity and also absolutely inevitable, so it’s one of those things we have to embrace by default.”

In the Spirit World Now, out August 23 on Relapse, sees Ceremony at the height of their creative output, as the always-evolving Cali quintet take various influences from post punk and rock to create one of the summer’s most compelling and infectious records. The album marks a milestone for the band who have stayed true to themselves as songwriters throughout massive sonic growth throughout their long, storied career. It’s a collection of their most driving, intelligent songs to date and sees Ceremony take another step into a space they can truly call their own, as one of punk’s most unique and forward-thinking bands.

Ceremony confirmed two record release shows in San Francisco (August 23) and Los Angeles (August 24) with special guests Pissed Jeans and Marissa Nadler. September 3 they kick off their full U.S. tour with Choir Boy and Glitterer. See below for a full list of dates.

CEREMONY
IN THE SPIRIT WORLD NOW
RELAPSE RECORDS
AUGUST 23, 2019
PRE-ORDER HERE

Produced by Will Yip (Title Fight, Circa Survive, Turnover) and mixed by engineer Ben Greenberg (The Men, Pharmakon, Hank Wood And The Hammerheads), In the Spirit World Now grows with each listen, balancing Yip‘s pop sensibilities with Greenberg‘s noise-punk influence through dramatic, shining synthesizer hooks and a mature vocal strategy. Drummer Jake Casarotti and bassist Justin Davispower through the 11-tracks as a strong yet sparse backbone that interlocks with guitarists Andy Nelson and Anzaldo to create a pop-centric, post-punk canvas for frontman Ross Farrar to expel the most vulnerable parts of himself.

In the Spirit World Now, out August 23 on Relapse, sees Ceremony at the height of their creative output, as the always-evolving Rohnert Park quintet take various influences from post punk and rock to create one of the summer’s most compelling and infectious records. Ceremony are featured on this month’s cover of New Noise Magazine.
