Listen up, everybody. If you’re a fan of Erra, Volumes, or Northlane, boy do we have some outstanding stuff lined up for you this morning. Today The Noise is beyond excited to be premiering a brand new track from progressive metalcore outfit Upon The Water.

Titled as “Fire,” the band’s new four-minute and 36-second ripper is a melodic masterpiece weaving through technical musicianship and dueling clean and harsh vocals from frontman Kendall Thompson and guitarist Justin Joseph.

As for what the striking new track represents, Joseph explains, “[’Fire’] is a very personal song for us as it journeys through the depths of our experiences with alcohol/substance abuse and the inner turmoil it causes. It was probably the most fun song to write as it really touched on a lot of our different influences which really took the song to new places.”
