Converge, Red Chord, ex-Job For A Cowboy members launch band
Umbra Vitae is a new extreme metal/death metal project featuring Jacob Bannon (Converge, Wear Your Wounds), Mike McKenzie (The Red Chord, Wear Your Wounds), Sean Martin (Twitching Tongues, Wear Your Wounds, ex-Hatebreed), Jon Rice (Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats, ex-Job for a Cowboy), and Greg Weeks (The Red Chord). The group will drop their debut record, Shadow of Life, on May 1st via Deathwish Inc.. The album was recorded and mixed by Kurt Ballou at his GodCity studio (with guitars and bass recorded by McKenzie at The Black Coast) and its lead single, " "Return to Zero," can be streamed now here: Bannon says this of the song: "'Return to Zero' is about removing resistance in one's life in order to be best version of 'you' that one can be. I feel that this is a relatable topic for many. What resistance is and how it manifests is unique to every single one of us. For me this is a constant process and essential to being a better husband, father, friend, artist, and human. Below you'll find a section of the lyrics that state this better than I can in paragraph form. Thank you to everyone who continues to listen." Shadow of Life track listing: 01. Decadence Dissolves 02. Ethereal Emptiness 03. Atheist Aesthetic 04. Mantra of Madness 05. Fear is a Fossil 06. Polluted Paradise 07. Intimate Inferno 08. Return to Zero 09. Blood Blossom 10. Shadow of Life
