Appleseed Cast, the post-rock group from Lawrence, Kansas that has been making music since the 1990s, is set to release their latest album next week. The LP, Illumination Ritual, marks the band’s first full-length since 2009 and their first release since the 2011 EP Middle States.
What will strike fans immediately about the album is its energy. Although the songs were written over the course of three months, the lyrics were penned in just a few days. The band has obviously continued to evolve in the time since their last release.
You can listen to a single from the album, “Cathedral Rings,” in the player below. Illumination Ritual is set for release on April 23 via Graveface Records.
