AURAS RELEASE MOMENTA MUSIC VIDEO
SUMMER TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED
WITH SHOWS IN OTTAWA AND WATERLOO
NEW ALBUM, BINARY GARDEN, OUT TOMORROW
PRE-SAVE/ORDERS AVAILABLE NOW
Toronto, ON – July 11, 2019 – AURAS have released a new music video today for their single, Momenta. Directed by JP Charlebois, this is the first music video to be released from their full length coming out tomorrow.
“We had a blast filming in Montreal with JP Charlebois," says guitarist Josh Ligaya. "Thank you to Cosmodome for letting us film in their amazing space museum. Please enjoy part 1 of the music video series!”
AURAS has embarked on an extensive tour which will go through the summer in support of their all-new LP. The band hit the road earlier this week on a short run of headline dates before meeting up with Night Verses for ten days. AURAS will then continue for two weeks with Red Handed Denial. All tickets are on sale now.
Binary Garden will be the follow up to Heliospectrum, the debut full-length offering from AURAS. Heliospectrum was the inevitable culmination of years spent perfecting their sonic brew in basements, clubs, and rehearsals, honing a mix of unrelenting heaviness, complex riffs, and melodic ambiance.
As New Noise raved in their four-star review, “AURAS specializes in chaotic intensity married with passages of staggering beauty (and nice melodic touches strewn about).” Canada’s Exclaim! observed, “Heliospectrum is an indication that, in a genre overflowing with imitators, AURAS are capable of carving out a place that is firmly their own.” Metal Injection’s Nick Abela even included the album on his list of the Top 15 Albums of 2016.
Ottawa native, Dean Hadjichristou (Parkway Drive, Protest The Hero, The Kindred), recorded Binary Garden, which was mixed by Jordan Valeriote (Silverstein, Counterparts, Structures). Nick Sampson (Of Mice & Men, We Came As Romans, Born Of Osiris) aided in preproduction as AURAS endeavored to crystallize their ambitious ideas.
Binary Garden saw the band members challenging themselves like never before, from the writing stage through the production process. They shook off preconceived notions and embraced a cleaner singing and simpler structure without sacrificing their signature sound. The end result features more atmospherics alongside a bigger feel.
AURAS continue to throw new curveballs, pulverizing through tight musical corners with precision, filling their songs with rhythmic twitches and warped riffs that beckon listeners down a new rabbit hole with each rewarding repeated listening. It’s all imbued with a deep sense of connection to the audience and an emphasis on communication.
AURAS shouldn’t just be listened to. This is music that simply must be experienced. Full album and 2019 tour details can be found below.
