Brisbane's Lavidius are today announcing the release of their brand new LP, "Helisma" on Friday September 1st. The five-piece brutal crew out of Brisbane premiered their new single 'Days Get Darker' (featuring from massive Swedish metal act Soilwork on guest vocals!) on The Racket with Lochlan Watt and online with Hysteria Mag. The band released first taste of Helisma with single Cold and Alone last month.
The new single 'Days Get Darker' will be available in Spotify this Friday, as will the pre-order for 'Helisma' in iTunes, Google Play and all other online outlets. Physical product pre-orders will be available at the band's Big Cartel online store same day.
2014 saw Lavidius enter studio Anders Debeerz to record their debut EP "Prison Within". It was mixed by Adam Merker and mastered at Fascination Street Studios by Jens Bogren and released on September 20, 2014. In June 2016, Lavidius entered studio Anders Debeerz again with Adam Merker to record this, their debut album "Helisma". It was through Adam Merker that the connection Soilwork's Björn Strid was made.
Jon Shedden, guitarist for Lavidius, said this about the collaboration. "We are absolutely stoked to have been able to work with Björn, Soilwork have been a massive influence on all our lives and our music journeys. Soilwork are personally one of my all time favorite bands. We all really hope everyone digs the direction of this album - because we couldn't be happier with how it's all sounding!"
Lavidius have supported and played shows with Spanish thrash band Angelus Apatrida and Australian legends Orpheus Omega, Witchgrinder, DarkCell, Chronolyth and Vanishing Point.
Days Get Darker will be available online this Friday 28th July in Spotify and the album 'Helisma' will be available to pre-order on iTunes, Google Play and all online outlets same day at at Big Cartel for physical products.
