Rising out of Montreal, QC’s vibrant music scene, progressive rock/metal band MIRE are proud to announce the official release of their debut album Inward/Outward on March 18th to follow up their 2010 self-titled EP. Two years in the making, Inward/Outward is a 10 track reflection of ideas flying every which way around the recording studio, ranging from cognitive science to a military stint in Afghanistan by guitarist Dave Massicotte.

“We created this with our guts and have dared to explore a less common style of metal where the music is less obvious and sometimes requires the individual to have more than one listen before being able to grasp and really appreciate every musical element,” says guitarist Massicotte of the album. “From big chunky guitar to light piano melody, every song will take you on a different journey and set of emotions.” The band has released a free download of the song “Limitless Pt. 2” in support of the album.
