announce new single ‘Road To Neverland’
Following the success of their last release ‘Weight of the World’,
Gottweist return with explosive new
single Road To Neverland.
The fourpiece heavy metal band from
Valleyfield, Quebec, bring energetic
style and powerful sounds to the new
taken from their upcoming EP
‘Prophecy’ out on the 7th of May. Road
to Neverland leads the way and will
be available on all platforms from
26th March 2021.
Driven by guitar-heavy soundscapes, Road To Neverland embodies a fiery performance, melodic
riffs and growling vocals. 2021 is the year of return for Gottweist, who released their debut album
‘Future Is In Our Hands’ back in 2015. Their dynamic new music is the result of a few years of
hunkering down and writing new material, taking inspiration from metalcore bands such as Bullet
For My Valentine and Killswitch Engage, to rock bands like Alice In Chains. When it comes to
influences though, Gottweist have no limit. Refusing to be constrained to one genre, they find
inspiration in multiple and diverse styles, and in doing so make their sound distinctive and
memorable, something that promotes only their versatility and open-mindedness.
‘Do you know what it’s like seeing you drift to Neverland’ is the opening line to the chorus, a nod
to lead singer Marco Lavigne’s friend who succumbed to the dark world of drugs, and fortunately
found his way back out, while some don’t have the same ending. Accompanying the track is the
lively official video, a visual representation of their sound. All four members feature in the video, a
powerful performance that really showcases their stage presence. Lavigne captures the essence of
the track through sombre lyrics and gritty vocals, aligning the animated drum fills of Kevin Lacoste
and a high-intensity guitar solo that cascades over dark rhythm guitars. The backing vocals of
guitarist Alex Soucy and bassist Alexandre Myre only add to the melodic hooks, setting the mood
under atmospheric flashing lights. This is a taster of their real life stage presence, a craft they have
perfected through their live gig experience over the years.
An important part of the metal scene, Gottweist can be found playing festival stages throughout
Quebec, building their dedicated fanbase. With their 2015 debut album ‘Future Is In Our Hands’
already under their belts, there is much anticipation for the release of their upcoming EP
‘Prophecy’. Road To Neverland will be released via Collective Wave Records.
