Imminence Records' Georgia melodic metalcore outfit Midwayer is back with their sophomore release on the label. The concept EP, entitled Never Together, is now streaming in full. It features six new tracks and a special bonus track for the longtime fans of the band. Pans for the latter half of the year will be announced at a later date.
"Thematically, This is a very different recording than 'Thresholds'. Where 'Thresholds' was more ethereal, political and observational, 'Never Together' has a much more grounded subject basis. It's effectively a story of a man who has shut himself off from the world for so long, but is beginning to see the good in mankind. Removing himself from his cave to find the good in the world.
Anger, Fear, Disgust and coping with Death. But also intertwined with positivity, self-inspiration, and closure. These are the themes and the lyrical content comes from a very personal place and those experiences that inspired them. Musically, we wanted the sound to be reflective of these themes as well, While bringing back that early 2000's metal core style, mixed with more modern elements." - Gary Pounds (Guitarist)
