Libricide provides a veritable bouquet of influence still not experienced in much of today’s typical artists. With influences ranging from rock to pop to hip-hop, to metal, acoustic music and beyond, their new album Consilience takes their self-titled debut a whole two steps further and shows the world just how much is actually possible in today’s musical landscape.
Libricide stands out amongst a crowd of embattled artists both local and national, coming a long way from their gritty, hometown NYC-local circuit. Their exceptional writing, musicianship and conceptuality sets them starkly apart from their peers.
The group released a first EP entitled Barriers to Entry followed by their full-length, self-titled debut in 2015. In the time since releasing their first album, they have shared the stage with countless world-renowned artists including Puddle of Mudd, Ace Frehley, Angel Vivaldi, Smile Empty Soul and Yngwie Malmsteen, to name a few. Now with their fully-realized, impeccably produced sophomore follow-up Consilience, they are reaching audiences that have been yearning for a healthy step out of the old and into the new.
The band has released their newest single, “Over Everything” off of their upcoming album, Consilience. “Over Everything” is a heavy-hitting Hard Rock offering punctuated by its crunchy, driving guitar riffs.
While lyrically the song encapsulates a growing sentiment of exasperation with the current state of the world in the midst of a global pandemic, it wasn’t necessarily what the band set out to write. “We’ve been going through this pandemic for almost two years now,” says vocalist and guitarist Harun Gadol, “I remember writing this song from a more general sense of frustration. It’s sadly perfect how much it resonates with what we’re all going through now more than ever.”
Gadol also acted as producer on the song, which was engineered and mixed by John Ferrara and mastered by Ted Jensen (The Eagles’ Hotel California, Green Day’s American Idiot). Consilience is slated to be released in its entirety later this year.
