With the Dec. 2 release of their self-titled sophomore effort less than two months away, WHITE ARMS OF ATHENA have unveiled the new song “Heavy Sleep,” the first piece of new music from the Texas-based, prog-infused quintet since their 2011 debut Astrodrama via YouTube .This band is super cool and along with Wings Denied, Fallujah, Torrential Downpour (and a few others that come to mind), White Arms are injecting life into the intricate side of extreme things without the songs suffering. Plus, you gotta dig that weird Liquid Television meets David Bowie lookin’ alien art thing.
“Heavy Sleep” is also available for instant download as a single or when you pre-order a digital copy of the album from either iTunes, Amazon MP3 or Bandcamp! Physical pre-orders are also available offering the release on CD or LP (including a digital download card) along with special bundles featuring an 11×17 poster of the intriguingly chromatic cover artwork designed by Luis Garcia (as showcased above) directly from Prosthetic’s webshop (HERE).
