Guitarist Myles Yang comments: “One of the hallmarks of ‘Quiet World‘ is the extreme density of the arrangements. The album is saturated with important, but oftentimes subtle layers and Easter eggs. Every time I’ve happened to hear this music with the vocals muted, I’ve been struck by just how much is going on under there that I had stopped paying attention to. Without the vocals as the main focal point, you really start to notice all those countless details. It’s a totally fresh and very interesting perspective on this music. We just had to put it out there for all our hardcore fans.
On top of that, we’re pleased to be able to include the 8th track, ‘Silence,’ on this release. This was originally a bonus track available only on the Japanese version of ‘Quiet World‘, but it really is an essential component of the concept. glhf.”
NATIVE CONSTRUCT is currently in the midst of writing their sophomore album for Metal Blade Records with an expected release date for the second half of 2017. Hailed as a “masterpiece” by HeavyBlogIsHeavy.com (5/5), their debut, Quiet World, was largely self-produced and written between 2011 and 2013, when the individual band members weren’t busy with their studies at the Berklee College of Music. What began as jam sessions simply for fun eventually turned into a full-fledged musical endeavor. In addition to securing multiple national tours, including a full USA trek with Between the Buried and Me, Native Construct also debuted on the Billboard charts (#56 Hard Music Albums Chart; #85 New Artist Chart) with Quiet World.
