Arcadea are a synth-heavy psych band featuring vocalist and drummer Brann Dailor (Mastodon), guitarist/keyboardist Core Atoms (Zruda) and keyboardist/guitarist Raheem Amlani (Withered, Scarab). This week, Arcadea has announced their self-titled debut album, which is due June 16th via Relapse Records. According to Arcadea, the album is a “visionary, 10-song synth odyssey.” Listen to the band’s 2015 song ‘Gas Giant’ below.
In a press release, Arcadea described the concept of their debut album:
The album envisions a future 5 billion years from now, where the impending collision of galaxies creates a new order of planets. Where cold, distant moons pledge alliance to new suns and expanding gas giants implode into black holes. Ancient drones, forever adrift, record toxic tales of love between dying stars. Where lifeforms in suspended animation, dream among the ice rings of Saturn and cosmic war wages among gods and planets. It is in this universe that Arcadea reign supreme as the last surviving space wizards since the final extinction.
