Progressive grunge rockers GARGOYL, which features guitarist Dave Davidson (REVOCATION) and guitarist/vocalist Luke Roberts (AYAHUASCA), are now releasing the third new track, taken from their self-titled album! The band will release their debut full-length on October 9th, 2020 via Season of Mist. Watch the new offering, “Plastic Nothing,” below.
GARGOYL comments on the track: “Why am I so afraid that my body, my possessions, and even my mind are in a state of constant dissolution? why am I so afraid of the idea that every atom in my body came from dirt and will soon return? Maybe the tighter I hang on to being a person, being permanent, secure, the more I suffer. Maybe the tighter i hang onto the idea of a perfect world the faster it burns. Fear is like a bully that offers you protection in exchange for obedience. Perhaps if I hang on less tightly, the sum of my short fleeting life could mean something more than just living in a constant state of fear right up until my inevitable death bed.”
GARGOYL is many things at once, which, automatically subjects the band to the journalistic and fan guessing game/rite of passage as to what style they actually are. Their 11-song self-titled debut is progressive, atmospheric, heavy, technical, and avant-garde; a blend of sounds that ultimately coalesce into a body of work that engages and challenges. That, in itself, covers a broad spectrum but further inroads into GARGOYL’s sound continually reveal new elements of intrigue and persuasion. It is the beauty — and purpose — of the project.
