Perception continue their climb with a new video for “Defy Dismay”, which arrives next month. The track is taken from their forthcoming sophomore EP, Monolith, which lands on Friday 9th March.
Taking in a slew of influences, ranging from Architects and Monuments to Underoath, Perception have sharply managed to merge their influences to craft something exciting, and abundantly powerful and commanding.
Hailing from Oxfordshire and born in 2012, Perception soon began to broadly tour throughout the UK, as they racked up shows with the likes of While She Sleeps, Continents, Create To Inspire, Feed The Rhino and Carcer City, to name a few. The high-rated tech metallers have now stamped a solid name for themselves and a growing fanbase, due to the band’s intensive and mesmerising live shows.
In 2016, Perception released their debut EP Collapse. The record was produced by Dan Kerr at Avenue Studios (Shields / Create To Inspire / Our Hollow, Our Home) and it instantly put the tech-metal combo on the map. Now, after much anticipation, the potnet riff slingers reveal their sophomore EP, Monolith. Boasting stout guitar riffery, explosive drum-work and ferocious vocals, the release is destined to grab listeners and make them take notice. From the boundless energy and roaring drive of their last single, Strive, to the full-on abrasive attack of their new single, “Defy Dismay”, each track on the EP is armed with its own thumbprint. Heavy, driving, and intricate, it’s sure to make a name for the band as they stride forward, starting with an assault on the UK this year!
