Listen to new Arcane Roots track Matter

Arcane Roots

Arcane Roots have released a brand new track titled Matter.

It’s been lifted from their upcoming second album Melancholia Hymns which will be out on September 15 via Easy Life/Red Essential.

The follow-up to 2013’s Blood & Chemistry is reported to be “full of ambition, electronica, riffs, strings, darkness and light. It is an album to lose yourself in completely, a complex musical journey for your mind and your heart.

“A record with so much love, care and attention that you can’t help but feel the passion that has gone making it, and marvel at its scope and sheer size.”

Matter is the second track to be released from Melancholia Hymns by the trio of Andrew Groves, Adam Burton and Jack Wrench – they revealed Curtains in December last year.

Melancholia Hymns is now available for pre-order in a variety of bundles from the band’s official online store.

Arcane Roots have also announced a European tour. Find a full list of tour dates below.
