Wielding a stunning, combined arsenal of post-rock, prog, shoegaze and traditional metal, UK three-piece Coldbones have announced the forthcoming arrival of their highly-anticipated second studio album - the ominously-titled “The Cataclysm” - as well as  the album’s first single, which drops on March 12th!

Releasing on April 17th, 2020, via Dunk! Records, Coldbones’ forthcoming studio offering follows their 2018 debut “Where It All Began”, which saw high praise upon release, with Metal Hammer calling the trio “one of post-rock’s shining lights”.

Now, Coldbones seek to present an intensely dynamic journey of musicianship with “The Cataclysm”, wrapped around a conceptual masterpiece that promises - quite literally - to destroy the world as we know it.

Described by the Kent-based trio as “a fatalist portrait”, each of the album’s ten tracks will serve as interconnecting pieces of a larger picture that offers the listener nothing less than a front-row seat to the end of the world.

“"The Cataclysm" presents a fictional take on two catastrophic events. The album draws inspiration from past catastrophes as well as works of fiction from various sources”, explains the band on their forthcoming epic. “We explored a reality where chaos and destruction consumed everything and everyone, in the form of two catastrophic events - The Flooding of the World and The Burning of the Earth. As fire rains from the sky and sea levels rise, the airwaves are polluted with disturbance signals of the few that remain”.

Complimenting Coldbones’ expansive and world-ending brand of prog-infused instrumental post-rock, artist Alice Urbino captures the devastation of “The Cataclysm” perfectly with the album’s cover art.

As fire and brimstone pour relentlessly from a charred and blackened sky, a seductive landscape of barren mountains and hills mirrors the haunted nothingness that Coldbones envisions will replace our bustling, noisy existence at the end of days. Capturing a living, breathing snapshot of the end of everything we know and love from every angle possible, Coldbones’ “The Cataclysm” promises to be an irresistibly bleak, wholly fascinating and entirely engulfing experience from start to finish.
