Messenger Threnodies cover
London-based progressive, psychedelic rockers Messenger recently signed to InsideOut Music for the release of their forthcoming second album “Threnodies” due on the 22nd April 2016, and now they are pleased to reveal “Balearic Blue”, the first track to be taken from the album. Listen to “Balearic Blue” below.

The beautiful artwork was designed by Daniel Correa Mejia.

The band had this to say about the track & the cover artwork: “We're very excited to present a preview track from our forthcoming album "Threnodies" as well as the cover artwork. The artwork and layout were created by Colombian, Berlin-based artist Daniel Correa Mejia. We were mesmerised by his paintings and decided that his work fits perfectly with our music. "Balearic Blue" is more along the lines of our previous release "Illusory Blues", so expect something different for the next track. We're very much looking forward to performing some of these new songs on our forthcoming tour with the Von Hertzen Brothers and HRH Prog in March”.

Messenger will be hitting the road in advance of the new album's release, with the band joining Finnish rockers Von Hertzen Brothers on their UK tour in March. They have also been confirmed for Hard Rock Hell Prog in March & Stone Free Festival at London's O2 Arena. The full list of dates can be found below.
