Scale The Summit‘s latest album The Migration is due out this summer, and I can’t wait. The band’s music is always picturesque and active, which is something I don’t typically find in some other instrumental acts. Their music is always adventurous; I’d often find myself playing Minecraft with Carving Desert Canyons and The Collective acting as the soundtrack, and let me tell you, it made that game epic. Unfortunately, the band has had some lackluster album art in the past that didn’t really pop out much. This isn’t the case with The Migration and the beautiful fantasy landscape emblazoning the cover. The Migration‘s cover — which was illustrated by Duncan Storr — seems to play heavily into the album’s title, depicting the migration of some sort of tree beast. I get the feeling that this would make a pretty sweet Pokemon, myself.
The Migration was produced by Jamie King (Between the Buried and Me, Last Chance To Reason), so that makes this album much more exciting for me. Here’s the tracklist:
2. Atlas Novus
3. The Olive Tree
4. Narrow Salient
7. The Dark Horse
10. The Traveler
The Migration is due out June 11th through Prosthetic Records. Pre-orders will be available soon, and with cover art like that, I’m hoping to get it on vinyl.
