Today sees the official premier release of ‘Vestigial’ by Australia’s leading sludge/post-metal band Lo!
‘Vestigial’ is Lo!’s 3rd full-length album, taking on a fuller approach with a much heavier and more organic sound. Which can be attributed to Adrian’s return from Asia after 7 years, Lo! continue to astound their fans.
“This time we had much more time to all be together as a band and really work on the songs properly instead of the last minute rush that usually happens. I think we all felt more connected now having Adrian back in the country”, comments guitarist Carl Whitbread.

Lo! have supported, bands like, CULT OF LUNA and THE OCEAN in April 2013 during a European tour and more recently performed at this year’s EUROBLAST and you can catch them at this month’s INTO THE VOID festival.
Lo! have always been interested in man’s relationship with the natural world. Themes of extinction, circuses and animal exploitation were explored on the band's 2015 EP 'THE TONGUELESS'.
“A world where politics resemble black comedies, where guns have become an aspect of culture and where addiction to technology is the norm is at the lyrical heart of 'VESTIGIAL'. “There are several repeated characters throughout the album; the JUDAS STEER, the LOCUST CHRIST... these are anti-heroes, the wolves among sheep figuratively. The ghastly Donald Trumps, The Kim Jun-uns, the extremists and ignorant tyrants of our modern lives”, comments Dillon.
The official release date for ‘Vestigial’ is set for, Friday 6 October 2017.
You can pre-order the album at Pelagic Records
