“”Spectre” was the final track we had written for the LP. It is composed of layers of distorted and looped basslines, heavy hitting drums, and merciless call-and-response vocals. As the opening track, it sets the tone for the rest of the album. Lyrically, the song explores the hidden nature of heavy stories people carry with them that live and die as secrets.” – Erin Severson

“Spectre” starts the album out on a heavy note, hitting abruptly and relentlessly as each member come in together all at once. That momentum carries throughout the entire track and is a strong example for what thematics can be expected for the rest of the band’s release.

Following their inception in late 2015, the quartet, which at the time consisted of Mike Britson (bass), J.J. Anselmi (drums), Boone Julius (vocals/noise) and Erin Severson (vocals) started playing shows and soon after released their debut EP: one 20-minute song called Photos of Eve IX-XVI. The singular track is comprised of multiple sections, each peppered with odd time signatures and unexpected changes.

After additional touring throughout the Midwest, Former Worlds buckled down to finish writing its debut LP, Iterations of Time, which will be released on January 31 through Init Records. During the recording, Anselmi and Julius amicably parted ways with the band, while Severson and Britson charged onward, recruiting Eric Anderson (drums) into the fold, who helped finish the remaining instrumentation for Iterations of Time in summer of 2018.

Since then, Former Worlds has played shows with YOB, Cloud Rat, Bell Witch, The Chasm, Serial Hawk, Woman is the Earth, and several other mighty bands. With no signs of slowing down, the band is currently working on material for a second full-length record.
