One of the fastest rising acts of the burgeoning Australian progressive music scene, Ballarat’s Ebonivory will release their highly anticipated new album, The Long Dream I on June 5 via Wild Thing Records!
It is available for pre-order here.
The Long Dream I is the first of a two-part concept album, delivering a vision that is pure and unrestrained by musical conformity, often leaving the listener nostalgic, enraged, and paralysed within the span of seconds. Entirely-self produced, mastered by Forrester Savell (Karnivool), and led by singer Charlie Powlett’s emotionally powerful delivery, every song presents a completely unique reimagining of what progressive music is capable of; shifting from the punk-inspired moments of Hanmer Street into the gritty, futuristic soundscapes of Explosions After Dark, and transcendental riffs and passages of Introvection. All the while effortlessly maintaining cohesive melodic bonds, resembling a sequence of dreams.

Frontman Charlie Powlett, says of the new album:
“We are absolutely beaming with excitement knowing that the first instalment of our upcoming 2-part album, ‘The Long Dream’ will finally see the light of day on the 5th of June. Entirely self-produced over the course of 4 years, ‘The Long Dream’ became infused with self-referential hardship and internal disaster that only further serves its story. Every song presents a completely unique reimagining of what progressive music is capable of, while maintaining cohesive melodic bonds like a sequence of dreams that makes perfect sense, but only until you commit it to words. It is a twisting journey that weaves through depression and elation; past, present, and future. This album is the cornerstone of Ebonivory. It encompasses everything we are passionate about as a band, and represents our leap of faith into the raging storm that is the modern music industry”
