The Night Watch

The Night Watch have announced they’ll release a 36-minute track entitled Boundaries on July 15.

The band from Ottawa, Canada, report the piece has been two years in the making and add that it shifts “seamlessly from intricate technicality to soaring atmospheres, crushing heaviness to delicate melancholy.”

The track is also described as “a powerful exploration of just how emotional instrumental music can be.”

Guitarist Nathanael Larochette, violinist Evan Runge, bassist Matthew Cowan and drummer Daniel Mollema have a handful of Canadian live dates scheduled in support of Boundaries, which is available for pre-order from the group’s Bandcamp page.
