Far & Will Haven Members Join Sons Of Alpha Centauri For New Album “Push”, Hear First Single “Buried Under”


Sons Of Alpha Centauri have had an August 27th release date mapped out for their new album “Push” via Exile On Mainstream Records. Shifting away form their instrumental approach, this new album will find the band joined by two veterans of the Sacramento, CA scene: Jonah Matgranga (Far, Gratitude, etc.) and Mitch Wheeler (Will Haven).

Matranga provides vocals throughout the album, which was tracked in Sacramento, CA with Lance Jackman behind the boards. Mixing and engineering duties were overseen by Dan Lucas, while Nick Zampiello (Cave In, Converge) mastered it.

Sons Of Alpha Centauri bassist Nick Hannon commented of the stylistic shift the group made on this record:

“SOAC has a split personality; this is most certainly our darker and heavier side. We grew up on ‘90s alternative rock and to harness our vision with the purveyors of the Sacramento post hardcore sound will make this a true landmark release and we have taken it to the extreme collaborating with Mitch and Jonah!”

He continued:

“We’ve always been interested in working in a collaborative manner, so despite the epidemic, we’ve continued building and expanding our spectrum of musical genres that we want to experiment with. This is an exciting phase for us and integrating the guys from Sacramento and their heritage is phenomenal.

We have worked to sculpt the instrumental rock dexterity of SOAC and provided a hardcore backbone by integrating Mitch and Jonah that has breathed a whole new spirit into the vessel. It still has an element of mysticism but comes with a more direct connection to the audience.”

Buried Under” has been launched as the first single from the album and can be heard below.
