Imminence Records’ Sirens has unveiled their boundary pushing new single entitled “Drone” to the world. The single, which can be heard here, features technically-driven heavier sections complementing immaculate ambient soundscapes. Drummer/singer Zakk Huff had this to say on the single, “We are excited to present our fans with what we consider to be our heaviest, most demanding, and softest song yet. ‘Drone’ pushes our boundaries in all directions; intricate rhythmic work, experimental orchestration, distinct vocal lines, dense harmony, massive guitar, and drastic style changes that push the genre “progressive metal” to the limits.” Imminence Records owner Amanda Caixeta added, “I think this single really represents the sound Sirens is going for. They really love to experiment with heavy, rhythmic metal and compliment it with relaxing ambiance. Their upcoming full length will push their boundaries even further; the guys plan to have a couple of songs with fast paced electronics and a couple with slow paced ambiance like in ‘Drone.’ We’re all looking forward to releasing this album.”

In a period where the majority of bands seem to limit themselves to one sound or genre, Sirens stands out as a group which is nearly impossible to label. The band, which consists of guitarists Jordan Caylor and Jordan Thralls, bassist Logan Pollaro, vocalist and mixing engineer Joey Fenoglio, and electronic composer and percussionist Zakk Huff, seamlessly weave between a unique blend of sounds. Rooted in progressive metal, drum and bass, and ambient soundscape, Sirens is heavy, aggressive, syncopated, digital, self-reflective, atmospheric, and experimental. Between crushingly heavy dubstep, thunderous breakbeat, and intricate metal, Sirens will take their listeners on an unforgettable journey through a world of sound and expression, driven by rich, classical harmony, and jarring rhythms.
