Northlane Premiere “Afterimage” Featuring Karnivool’s Ian Kenny


Australian progressive metalcore band Northlane have premiered the studio version of their latest single “Afterimage“. The band began playing that that track live last month. Karnivool‘s Ian Kenny lent his vocal talents to this studio version of the song, which you can stream below.

Northlane guitarist Jon Deiley commented:

“Touring with Karnivool changed my perspective on songwriting by showing me a solid groove is more interesting than some flashy technical bit. Writing a good groove means you can exploit it in different ways while still keeping it interesting over time. Karnivool influenced Northlane by showing us that songwriting and nailing every transition live is more important than jumping around.

We hopped on the Asymmetry tour years ago and were still riding the success of Singularity when we discovered pretty quickly some fans just want to stand and enjoy you playing the music perfectly. I think that’s where our unhealthy hyper-critical evaluation of our performance came from!”

Look for the track to appear on Northlane‘s new Will Putney (Body Count, Every Time I Die) produced EP, “Mirror’s Edge“, due out April 12th.
