The band’s new record The Harmony & The Chaos is out 17 May 2019 via Undead Collective Records.
UK rock quintet Brightlight City have released a video for their new single Through The Lens. The track is taken from the band’s debut album The Harmony & The Chaos, due for release on 17 May 2019 via Undead Collective Records.
Of the debut album Brightlight City comment: “The Harmony & The Chaos has a number of themes in every individual song. The title itself was something that we have been using for a while now. For us it started as a description of us live with someone stating ‘you guys sit in a pocket between harmony and chaos’. The more we thought about it the more it made sense with the themes for songs we were writing as well as how we see live shows. It is also a great description of where we are in society and within ourselves skating the fine line between harmony and chaos.”
The Harmony & The Chaos follows Brightlight City’s highly-regarded 2017 EP Our Future’s Not Dead, which saw support from Kerrang!, Powerplay Magazine, and more. Eleven tracks of polished UK rock which tread the lines between robust British Indie and classic alt-rock, The Harmony & The Chaos is an accomplished record from a band ready to show their full potential. Elements of Hundred Reasons, Thrice, Press To Meco, Reuben and more clash and collide in the LP which is bursting with melody and attitude.
Highly personal, the album covers a variety of viewpoints from a group passionate about homegrown talent (running their own record label), literature, politics and art. From fake news (‘Feast On Fear’), to war photography (‘Through The Lens’) and Italian governmental corruption (‘Songs Of Dissent’), The Harmony & The Chaos is a disarmingly deep and multi-faceted release.
In their history Brightlight City have supported Rise Against, Millencolin, Dead!, Blood Youth, Press To Meco, Max Raptor, Fizzy Blood, Bad Sign, amongst others, a company of bands which marks the newer UK group as ones to watch.
