Australia's premiere dual-bass prog rock trio The Omnific have announced that they will release their brand new studio album, The Law Of Augmenting Returns, through Wild Thing Records on June 7.

It's the second full-length release from the band, following 2021's Escapades, and is preceded by first single Base Camp. You can watch the new video for the single below.

"In what could be described, as the defining song of a new era of musical possibilities to come from us, Base Camp takes you on a journey to the top of the mountain, and back," says one of the band's bassists, Matt Fack of the single, the video for which was filmed in Sydney's Jervis Bay.

The Omnific regrouped the production team behind Escapades for The Law Of Augmenting Returns, namely Adam Bentley (mixing, Arch Echo), Ermin Hamidovic (mastering, Periphery), and Josh Saunders (artwork); with the majority of programming handled by the band’s own Matt Fack. 

"The Law Of Augmenting Returns is the culmination of the experience and knowledge learned and embodied in the eight years of our existence as a band," adds Fack. "With our creative mindset to incorporate new ideas adhered to the core principle of bass, this album paints the story of the band’s past, present, and beyond."

The trio, who played live in Europe last year, return for more live dates this summer with a string of their own headline shows and festival appearances including the UK's Radar and ArcTanGent festivals. You can view all the dates below.
