Kaonashi To Release New EP In July, Launch “Passing Through The Hourglass” Video


Experimental post-hardcore band Kaonashi have revealed a July 26th release date for their new EP, “A Second Chance At Forever: The Brilliant Lies From Casey Diamond“. Equal Vision Records will be issuing that 5-song effort, which will continue the concepts found on the band’s past releases.

Vocalist Peter Rono explained:

“These songs make up a fictional story but it’s rooted in our personal experiences. We are starting from the ending and moving to the beginning. On the 2021 LP [‘Dear Lemon House, You Ruined Me: Senior Year’], it’s about Jamie and it’s the tragedy that happens on graduation day. The last release [2024’s ‘The 3 Faces of Beauty: A Violent Misinterpretation Of Morgan Montgomery’] is about Morgan and their junior year. And this album is about Casey and reveals more about how we ended up at this tragedy.”

A music video for the band’s new single “Passing Through The Hourglass” has just arrived online.
