The energy in this new track, Badlands by innerspace is quite strong, there is a pulse, and depth in the tone that pushes through the mix. The guitar tone jumps out, creating these dynamic rhythmic cascades adorned with spirited lead intricacies.

Vocally the band has a more gentle delivery, there is less grit and more emotional connection with the songsmith. Drawing some comparable mentions alongside Coheed & Cambria, I really hear a strong Muth Math or Minus the Bear vibe in the mix.

The Badlands shares in the album’s narrative of humanity’s disconnection and the destruction of the natural world, and the physical and psychological toll it takes. Big concept, but a wonderful realm to explore and engage the listener.

Badlands is the ninth single off of our upcoming album Echoes, which releases on 2/26/21. Be sure to check this out and share you thoughts in the comments.
