Caligula’s Horse, hailing from Brisbane, Australia, a leading light in contemporary progressive metal worldwide, are set to release their fifth studio album, Rise Radiant, on the May 22. Produced by the group’s Sam Vallen, and mixed by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Devin Townsend Project, Leprous), the record is their most focussed and potent artistic statement to date.
Today, the band are pleased to launch, Valkyrie, the third single from Rise Radiant, and you can watch the art video & listen to it here at SCENEzine.
Drummer Josh Griffin comments: “Valkyrie is a song that’s very close to our hearts. Its themes of learning patience, ending the war inside ourselves, and celebrating the journey are more timely and appropriate than ever before. We all had an absolute blast putting this one together, particularly some of the fun interplay between us all and getting every last drop of groove out of it. We’re all incredibly proud of this track. Valkyrie encapsulates everything Rise Radiant represents. It’s vibrant and colourful, dark, groovy and heavy!”
The band have also launched a new interview series that sees the band discussing the new album in-depth via video call. Watch the latest instalment, where they talk about Slow Violence, below:
