Glass Hammer to release space-inspired concept album ARISE

Set against the backdrop of deep space exploration, ARISE follows the extraordinary journey of an android dispatched by overzealous scientists to uncover the galaxy’s hidden wonders. The album’s lyrics, liner notes, and artwork convey a tale of cosmic dread and wonder that doesn’t begin with a big bang, but, according to Glass Hammer mastermind Steve Babb, it definitely ends with one. “We’re big on finales, but this is probably the heaviest thing we’ve ever done. It’s a 17-minute instrumental in three parts meant to leave our fans’ jaws on the floor!”

Babb is joined by singer Hannah Pryor and guitarist Reese Boyd for Glass Hammer’s twenty-first studio album. “ARISE is my progressive-rock spin on space rock,” says Babb. “I’m still flirting with doom metal on a couple of songs, as we did on the last two albums, but there’s also psych-rock and even 80’s influence going on in the music. Even so, it’s very much a prog-rock album, just one that touches on other styles.”

ARISE is set for release on October 27. Pre-order here:
