Three years ago Cleveland’s Nathan Opposition and NJ’s Dan Lorenzo recorded their debut EP for Italy’s Argonauta Records. VESSEL OF LIGHT are now about to deliver their fourth record in less than three years. The first single is ‘Last Ride’ which is also the name of the new release on California’s Nomad Eel Records. Opposition and Lorenzo had previously recorded the single/video ‘Son of Man’ from their ‘Woodshed’ album before adding former Hades bassist Jimmy Schulman and longtime Overkill drummer Ron Lipnicki.
VESSEL OF LIGHT were in the middle of playing shows in March when Covid hit. The silver lining? Instead of releasing ‘Last Ride’ in 2021 the band will now drop their opus in the early fall.
“In both Hades and Non-Fiction we kind of fell apart after the second release”, said Lorenzo. “I’ve never released four albums in less than three years for multiple reasons-one being that I’ve never been this inspired before. I had music to about ten songs written before we did our run of shows in March, but I wrote another seven during the lock-down. I was incredibly happy how smooth Ron and Jimmy came into the picture on our last release (Thy Serpent Rise) and we’ve only grown since then. Nathan never ceases to amaze me vocally. He outdid himself on our first single Last Ride. It sounds like it should be a hit-now I know and you know it’s NOT going to be a hit song, but this is next level music. Not a typical uninspired band going through the motions.”
Vessel Of Light’s new single will be serviced to radio Tuesday August 4th. Album art was created by Danny Rome. Nomad Eel will release ‘Last Ride’ on CD, vinyl and cassette in October 2020.
