The Skinny: Sprawling from the depths of Arizona comes sludge-ridden, post-doom rockers North, who are proud to present the debut track from their forthcoming Prosthetic release Light The Way, due out worldwide on March 18. Check out “Earthmind” streaming via the YouTube clip below.

Produced by longtime collaborator Dana Fehr and mastered by Colin Marston (Krallice, Gorguts), Light The Way incorporates a perfectly crafted balance of darkness and light to escort the band on their forward journey. With a visible path in sight, the ever-evolving band have locked into to their true potential to display what Decibel calls “their most focused and evocative work” to date.

Light The Way – the cover art for which can be seen below – is now available for pre-order digitally (which includes an instant download of “Earthmind”) and physically on CD and LP. The first pressing is available on standard-weight black and limited-edition smoke-colored vinyl, both of which will include a download card. Reserve yours today via Prosthetic’s webshop.
