Separation Has Begun’ is the new single from South African Modern Groove Metal mob Sunken State. It’s the first single taken from the band's forthcoming debut full-length album Solace In Solitude which is set to drop on 11 June 2021.

"Separation Has Begun is about human's disconnect from nature. Mother nature is fierce, beautiful, scary, and inspirational - we cannot survive as a species without her. Our exploitative relationship with nature is founded on a disregard for the future in pursuit of short-term goals. The band captures these emotions with an aggressive yet melodic expression of sound. While introducing new clean vocals, "Separation" promises to deliver the modern groove elements that Sunken State has become synonymous with.” – Sunken State

The band formed in 2018 in Johannesburg and have been perfecting their sound ever since. Sunken States debut EP titled Enter the Grey was released in August 2019, followed by the single ‘This Is the End’ in March 2020, which US tastemaker metal site No Clean Singing described as “vicious, brutal music to be sure, but still manages to be catchy”.

Although relatively new in the scene, each member has been crafting their skills for many years and have joined forces to create Sunken State. The band is known for their tight, high-energy on-stage performances and have been gaining a lot of traction in the South African metal scene playing high profile shows including the South African Metal Music Awards and opening for The Black Dahlia Murder at Ramfest.
