Ancients Release Debut Single!

August 14, 2011

ANCIENTS RELEASE DEBUT SINGLE ON SEPTEMBER 26th ON SHELSMUSIC

After the demise of one of UK underground metal’s brightest talents, Rinoa – fans of epic hardcore music were left with a gaping hole in their universe. Fortunately, news of the split was shortly followed with an announcement by core Rinoa members to continue with a new incarnation that would take Rinoa’s unique vision to colossal new heights – or as the group would say: “a new constellation.”

Joined this time by Mehdi Safa (of *shels and Mahumodo) on vocals and Crydebris drummer Daniel Hoang  – ANCIENTS will unleash their debut 3-track single through Shelsmusic this September. And it’s no surprise that the group’s debut features such track titles as ‘Constellations’ and ‘De Stella Nova’ (the new star) to describe the fusion of unique elements that have come together to create a heavy musical journey like nothing before.

Ancients – “Constellations”
by shelsmusic

As ‘Constellations’ patiently unravels, it’s not long before you realise that something new
and monumental is on the verge of being delivered – and then it explodes into what feels like the soundtrack  to the birth of a thousand stars. It’s clear that ANCIENTS have not only retained the emotion and blistering power of all their past and present incarnations – but have also refined, transcended and perfected the art of making heavy music. But, this is more than just “Heavy”, this is colossal, delicate and beautiful – as giant slabs of distorted guitar intertwine with soaring vocals that scream like sirens of light – listeners are left recovering from the overwhelming dose of energy and emotion delivered.

This isn’t just a single – this is a mission statement by a band that are out to reshape music as we know it. ANCIENTS have arrived.

 

‘Constellations’ will be available as a limited edition single on CD (only 100 hand-screen-
printed copies and Digital.  The group have also started work on an EP that is being produced by Safa and Jonny Renshaw (Devil Sold His Soul). It’s scheduled for release early next year.

Mucho love and respect!

First and foremost we want to wish you all a belated happy new year! Sorry for the lack of updates of late – we promise to make it up to you by embedding mucho hidden free gifts within this mailer – so get your predator vision ON. We’ve been ridiculously swamped catching-up with orders received over the holidays – as some of you already know, we totally sold out of all our merch in the first few days of our FREE Shipping sale and had to repress everything, which was a bit of a mission with most places being closed for the holidays. Add to it bad weather affecting shipping and it all turned into a massive delay getting stuff out. But we’ve finally caught up and if you haven’t yet received all your merch, you will do any day now! Thanks for your patience and Congrats to those of you who managed to get the Free shipping deal;) Aside from that we’ve been busy talking with a bunch of new bands and working on our plans for 2011. Top of the list and first to announce is Ancients – a new project comprised of members of recently defunct Epic rockers RINOA – the line-up also includes members of the incredible Crydebris and Mehdi Safa of *shels on Vocals. More info on that below. In addition to new signings we’re also unveiling the 2nd of our limited collector’s edition SHELSMUSIC Compilations. So, scroll down.. and let us know if you have any questions! 🙂

2. LATITUDES UK TOUR
Mucho thanks to everyone who came out to Latitudes’ UK tour last month with HAMMERS and made each show such an incredible and monumental experience. It was Latitudes’ first UK Headline tour, which culminated with an incredible FREE show at the Old Blue Last in London. You can check out some of the tour pics on the Latitudes FB page here: Those of you who were at the shows would have heard some new tracks that will be on a new Latitudes record that is currently being written. Expect it to be filthier, faster and more abrasive than ever. Latitudes are still on the hunt for a permanent vocalist too to join the crew, so if you think you have what it takes then hit them up at latitudes@hotmail.co.uk . don’t be shy! ;)here’s a picture taken by the awesome James Milne in Manchester while Latitudes were on tour.

5. THE ASCENT OF EVEREST EUROPEAN TOUR
Following the hugely successful release of their beautiful 2nd album “From This Vantage” Nashville’s The Ascent Of Everest have been invited to play a slew of Festivals and shows across the US and Europe. The band is currently putting together dates for a European tour – more info will be released as soon as dates have been firmed up. If you live in Europe you can expect to see TAOE near you soon! If you haven’t picked-up a copy of “From This Vantage” do it at http://www.shelsmusic.com and don’t miss out on this. For fans of forward thinking, adventurous, brave and extremely emotional music. We are in love with this band and what they do and so proud to be involved. We hope you’ll jump aboard and join us in supporting brave musicians doing what they love and believe in like The Ascent Of Everest.

6. SHELSMUSIC DIGITAL STORE
Thanks to all of you who have been downloading music directly from us at our digital store located at http://www.shelsmusic.com. This is where we as a label and the bands get the most from your orders. While iTunes and other sites are great at distributing music across the web, we as a label and the bands only get a tiny share of those downloads. So we hope you’ll spread the word and encourage folks to download directly from our site where and when possible.

We’ll also be introducing some sweet deals soon at our store. For example we feel that if folks are willing to buy a Tshirt, hoody or print they should get to download an album of their choice for FREE from our website. Not only is it a nice treat – but it’ll help us get spread some of this awesome music that we believe in so much.

7. THANK YOU
In closing we’d just like to say that we are BLESSED to be able to do what we do. Thanks to all of YOU. We might be a small label working in a super challenging industry – but if you think independent labels have it tough, just consider what it takes to be in an unsigned band or a band on a small label. We’re extremely honored to be involved with bands like Latitudes, Admiral Angry, Ef, The Ascent of Everest and all the rest of the bands on Shelsmusic. All of whom share similar stories of perseverance and juggling day jobs with trying to save up enough to go on tour or record and release their music. It takes a lot of guts to do what they do and we hope you’ll jump on the starship Shelsmusico and help us support these talented folks by spreading the word – buying a Tshirt or picking up a copy of the album – in return we’ll do all we can to make sure you’re happy and proud of your order by putting love into the artwork, and the work whether it’s recording, printing or whatever. We want every order, every release, every print to be a timeless collectable you can be proud of. So, if even the most you can do is post a comment on one of the band’s Facebook pages or an email – then do it – things like that can be so encouraging and fuel for a band to keep BRINGING IT in the face of whatever difficulty. Thank YOU all for being a part of this. We’d also like to say that there are thankfully A LOT of good people out there doing shit the right way –  helping bands, labels like us and helping good music be heard. Magazines like Rock Sound, Terrorizer many labels, promoters, venues, photographers and fans who get involved, give up their time, energy and help. We’re proud to know you and work with you on a daily basis.So, here’s to an incredible 2011 for us all. Now check out http://www.shelsmusic.com, complete your shelsmusic collection and bang your heads! :)mucho love, thanks and respect!
