Caligula's Horse New Album 'In Contact' Out Now. New Video For 'Songs For No One' Revealed

September 15, 2017

 

“A finely tuned inventive effort that bristles with crystal-sharp clarity” Metal Hammer

“Those who may have despaired that progressive metal had succumbed to regression will find solace in this, the band’s finest album to date.”Prog Magazine

“'In Contact' is a masterpiece…a work of unimaginable beauty.”The Music

Caligula’s Horse, a band at the forefront of Australia’s progressive rock scene, release their much-anticipated new album ‘In Contact’. To celebrate the album’s release, the band have launched a stunning new video for recent single ‘Songs for No One’.

Guitarist and director of photography/editor Adrian Goleby comments: "Songs for No One is by far the most complex and ambitious music video I've attempted for Caligula's Horse - and also for myself. I've worked alongside all of the guys for years now and the creative trust involved is what pushes all of us to find and conquer the next bastion of artistic development. We're also at a stage where we can come in and make these sorts of videos with confidence in making something distinct and memorable, as well as exciting for any audience. Working with (Director) Daniel Grey was also a treat for me. His ability to turn a metaphor into a story is remarkable in its own right. He definitely brought his best to the table, (and then flipped it).
I hope everyone that watches this is able to connect with the joy that we bring into Caligula's Horse, as well as the heart thumping excitement that I can't help but feel when I play it."

The video was directed by Daniel Grey and he comments: "Songs For No One is about embracing quiet passions; overcoming fear, depression and self destructive thoughts through the mindful cultivation of small things. The video speaks to those themes, and shows that any creative endeavour - even one only for yourself - is enough to keep the world turning.”

As with the band’s acclaimed album Bloom before it, In Contact sees vocalist Jim Grey and lead guitarist Sam Vallen collaborating closely on the music and lyrics. Vallen comments: “In our creative process every idea is scrutinized, deconstructed, and rebuilt in a way that one of us, alone, could never achieve. We’re one another’s harshest critic, but fortunately we’ve done this for long enough now that our inspiration draws us in a similar direction - we can finish each other’s musical sentences, so to speak. And we're lucky that's the case, since In Contact proved to be a much more ambitious undertaking than anything we’d conceived of in the past.”
 
Vocalist Jim Grey adds: "In Contact has been an enormous proposition - the stories told in this album feel deeply personal, and we've never been more excited to share a new work with the world. The sounds on this album are dark and adventurous - but without losing the bittersweet and joyful sounds we developed in writing Bloom.”
 

With a similar approach to their second album The Tide, the Thief & River’s End, the band decided to hang a concept around the entire record, taking it in a direction that would end up being the opposite of its predecessor. “We decided to create a concept album, but one that came from a more personal place: one that would facilitate our creative needs wherever the journey took us” Vallen continues. “The broader concept is based around the nature of art - of what it is that sparks creativity and inspiration, a celebration of what connects us as human beings, the shared space across our many differences.”

 

Watch the video for Will's Song (Let The Colours Run) here:

 

Taking in four separate chapters, each one is dedicated to an individual and their own personal journey and how they express themselves through art. “Each of these artists are reaching for something more in their lives, and while disconnected entirely from one another, they are united by that reach: for a better life, but also for something intangible.”
 

Written between late 2016 and May 2017, the album went through a rapid production/mixing/mastering process encompassing five weeks between May and June. The music felt fresh and the ideas were captured at the peak of their vitality. The music on ‘In Contact’ stretched all of the bands abilities, from the frantic speed and complexity of ‘Will’s Song (Let the Colours Run)’ to the immense scope and variety of the 16-minute album closer, ‘Graves’. This is Caligula’s Horse at their most ambitious and progressive.
