The Skinny: Veil Of Maya will release its fifth album, Matriarch tomorrow via Sumerian Records and are now streaming the entire album via YouTube – check it out below!

When Veil of Maya began recording Matriarch, the group found themselves with a lot of new ideas, but no singer. Enter Lukas Magyar. Hailing from literally the middle of nowhere, Magyar had never toured before, or even been on a plane. “”We flew him out, auditioned him and hired him on the spot,”” reveals guitarist Marc Okubo. “”He was great. He could sing, too, which is something we’d wanted to do for a while. It really opened up some possibilities.”
