ANCIIENTS Announce New Album!

Many moons ago, Anciients were crowned the guiding lights of progressive metal. The Canadians were already firing on all cylinders during a headlining tour of Europe when they won a JUNO Award for Metal/Hard Music Album of the Year in 2016.

Unfortunately, keeping their avalanche of momentum rocking and rolling proved to be no easy feat. For too long, Anciients seemed to lie dormant, hidden amongst the shadows. But now, after eight years of hermetic silence, the band have returned from the wilderness with a new lineup and their highly-anticipated third album, which now stands as their heaviest, headiest and most heartfelt offering.     

"The hiatus is over", says Anciients' frontman Kenny Cook. "We missed out on a huge block after the last record. But with the new album and new members, we're ready to hit it hard".

Beyond the Reach of the Sun comes out August 30, 2024 on Season of Mist. 

Listen to the mind-blowing lead single "Melt the Crown".
