Temporal Beast

by The New World Ancients

Progressive rock meets art rock meets psych rock meets new wave, etc.- music that is agreeably contradictory: both punishing and subtle, aggressive yet sensual, heightened though approachable; it’s artsy rock and roll that will terrify and delight you.

Album Notes
When was the last time your music beat you up, said it was sorry, bit your neck, gave you a noogie, laughed with you, gave you a backrub, got you high, slapped your face, walked away, came back and gave you a most satisfying bear hug ever, all within one hour?

Too good to be true, you say? Nay, reader, feast your ears on this!

“Temporal Beast” is the first full-length release by The New World Ancients, and an ambitious one at that.

When faced with the departure of half its members, most bands would likely choose to simplify and go in a more minimalistic direction. When this very thing happened to the former Athens however, the core members, multi-instrumentalists Andrew Yearick and Nick Chupein, decided to press forward with an expansive project that was truly a beast in every sense of the word. They wrote, performed, and recorded the vast majority of the record themselves, and invited guest musicians to their home studio to fill out the rest, slowly fashioning a leviathan album as varied sounding as their own musical tastes, whose lyrics dwell not on the mundane, but on the essential questions of human nature. It’s rock music for the thinking man, for the drinking man, and for the thinking, drinking man. “Temporal Beast” is best enjoyed alone in a dark forest, in a cave, under a bridge, or in space with a good set of headphones.
