Rivers of Nihil have released a stream of the title track from their third full-length Where Owls Know My Name. While the band’s last two albums thematically centered around the spring and summer, this record represents the fall. For Rivers of Nihil, fall serves as a sort of rebirth. The album reunites the band with producer Carson Slovak (August Burns Red, The Last Ten Seconds of Life) and Dan Seagrave, the storied artist behind such celebrated album covers as Entombed’s Left Hand Path and Suffocation’s Effigy of the Forgotten.
Guitarist Brody Uttley commented, “This record is Rivers of Nihil being exactly who we want to be. Many bands get stuck in a comfortable routine of releasing the same album over and over again. Constantly relying on the same familiar formula may work for some bands, but it does not work for us. Music is art, and art is ever-changing. Without change, there is no progress. Without progress, the very fire that powers art and expression will die. This record is the sound of where we come from, where we are, and where we are going.”
