Streaming Now! Montreal’s ETERNAL CLOSURE Present Highly Ambitious New Album “At the Center of It All”; Produced by Chris Donaldson (Cryptopsy)
Montreal’s Eternal Closure has a shiny new album “At the Center of It All – Chapter I” ready for ears. One that is more diverse, heavier, and more technical than anything they have done before. It shows how their songwriting abilities have taken a whole new step and incorporate prog, and djent elements simmered in with the solid core base.

Intimate experiences of love and pain // New Single “Crazy”
Stefano uses his rich background as a classically trained pianist to pair this vocally driven piece with a dim and distorted piano hook. We watch Stefano grapple with isolationism and the ghosts of his past as he journeys across abandoned beaches, lonely rooftops, and the solitude of his bedroom in this contemplative music video.

Liz Cass releases shimmering new single ‘Something Real’
Regarding the single Liz says, “‘Something Real’ is about the search for a genuine connection and looking for that in all the wrong places. Coming to a realisation that only you can break your own toxic patterns. I kept finding myself in the same place over and over and blaming it on others. I finally asked myself question: why am I putting myself in these situations that hurt me, do I enjoy it?! It’s a very personal song for me but I think a lot of people have been there at some point. Looking for real connection from the emotionally unavailable in dead end places.”
PALAYE ROYALE SHARE NEW SINGLE “LIFELESS STARS”

Their fourth full-length album, Fever Dream emerged from a much-needed break in the chaos, with the trio returning to their roots and composing most of the album on piano, resulting in a body of work that is equal parts ecstatic head rush and in-depth meditation on the state of the human psyche. Palaye Royale explains, “Making this record felt like getting back to when we first fell in love with music.” They continue, “This record is very much about self-belief and self-empowerment, and overcoming all the obstacles that life throws at you.
