Perth melodic hardcore group Saviour are back to share another taste of their fifth studio album ‘Shine & Fade‘ out via Greyscale Records April 29. Thoughtful new single “Tidal Wave” is the third single to release in the lead up to the new album, streaming everywhere now.

Showcasing a more technical side of the anticipated new album, “Tidal Wave” tackles themes relating to letting go and dealing with tragedy. “Tidal Wave is probably the heaviest and most technical track off the upcoming record. And it’s definitely one of our favourite tracks off of it,” says the band. “We feel the direction of Tidal Wave is a direction we are probably heading towards after ‘Shine & Fade’. So we’re really hoping people dig this one!”

Once again the music video is created in collaboration with videographer Clayton Orgles and his team (Make Them Suffer, Crossfaith, Northlane). The music video shares a full narrative concept, delving into the theme of heartbreak of loss and acceptance following a couple who seem to have lost their spark, until uncovering a tragic truth.

“It’s definitely a pretty heavy theme to take on, but we feel the way it was written can hold different meanings for different people, and that’s how we try keep all our lyrical content. Open for individual interpretation.”

“Younger” was the second single to release from ‘Shine & Fade’ after “Reshape Me”. Collectively the singles have racked up close to half a million Spotify streams in just a few months and gained over 180,000 YouTube streams, with each growing daily.

‘Shine & Fade’ is an evolution of Saviour’s sound and is an expansion of different themes, exploring heavier, darker and catchier sounds while staying true to Saviour’s roots. Welcoming guitarist Curtis Tunks to the fold in 2019, the six-piece found a fresh new drive and extra influence that sets this fifth offering apart from previous releases.

Saviour is Bryant Best (vocals), Shontay Snow (vocals/keys), Curtis Tunks (guitar), Chris Pearce (vocals, bass), Daniel Rees (guitar) and Michael Matta (guitar). Since the initial spark of creativity that grew to become the inferno that is Perth’s beloved heavy melodic act Saviour, both the external world and the internal mechanics of the band have changed dramatically.

One thing that will forever remain, is Saviour’s burning desire to create something truly unique within the alternative music scene. Their etherial collision of aggressive post-hardcore with atmospheric electronic sounds and vocals has lead to the six-piece standing out from the crowd for over a decade.
