Allegaeon Releases New Video / Single, “Iridescent”


Colorado melodic tech outfit ALLEGAEON, unleash their new stand alone single, “Iridescent” accompanied by an absolutely unhinged music video. The band recently finished working on their seventh full-length album with longtime producer Dave Otero (Flatline Audio).


The scathing new tune follows their “Inhumation” single, released last Fall, and serves as a precursor to the band’s forthcoming full-length. Where “Inhumation” had more of a Damnum vibe, “Iridescent” is more reminiscent of Elements Of The Infinite. Musically, both songs were written with an overwhelming sense of anger; “Inhumation” in soundscape form and “Iridescent” in a pure, frantic guitar-driven form.


Comments returning vocalist Ezra Haynes, “Originally recorded during the same session as our last single, ‘Inhumation,’ we wanted to release ‘Iridescent’ to give our fans a little love before we full send our next album cycle. This stand-alone single was cut from the very cloth of ALLEGAEON’s Elements Of The Infinite era. Perfect timing too, as we’re about to head out on the North American leg of the Cancer Culture Tour with Decapitated, Speticflesh, and Kataklysm this April. It will be very cool to see how the newer material is received. Here we are, just about ten years from when we released the song ’1.618.’ We still get asked to this very day about our wheel of subgenres, or, ‘Where’s the crab?’ I’m really looking forward to the next ten-plus years of glizzies.”


Adds guitarist Greg Burgess, “The music for ‘Iridescent’ spawned from my excitement of working with Ezra again. We had been throwing ideas back and forth, rekindling our writing chemistry, and this song just seemed to write itself. The accompanying video’s subject matter evolved much like our video for ’1.618.’ Five guys sat around talking about stupid things until we started laughing. Then the question was posed… ‘What if?’ Anyway, I hope people like hotdogs and stupid videos.”
