Mediaskare Records is proud to announce the addition of Montreal, Quebec’s The Prestige to its roster of artists and will release the band’s Antoine Lussier produced album ‘Ecotone’ on March 18th. You can listen to the track “Dismantle” from the album now at http://youtu.be/0ky5o9hoi14.
“We chose to release Dismantle first because we feel it perfectly represents everything contained on the album musically, its heavy and catchy,” stated guitarist Sebastien Marois. Adding, “Lyrically, Martin and JC wrote the song as an interpretation of the last lucid moments with your loved ones and facing the realization that your whole life is being dismantled brick by brick. Both have had the disease impact their lives in a big way. It’s a terrible thing to imagine, having all the people you love and have had by your side your entire life slowly become complete strangers.”
“An ecotone is a transition area between two biomes, It is where two communities meet and integrate. It may be narrow or wide, and it may be local (the zone between a field and forest) or regional (the transition between forest and grassland ecosystems),” explained the band. “Our bass player Blaise came with the idea about a year ago while we were writing the album and simply stuck with it. It really is a good metaphor about us. This album draws the line between our old sound and what we crafted over the years. The overall image is about separations, as in, before/after, right/wrong, and so on.”
The band teamed with producer Antoine Lussier (Obey The Brave) AT .357 Productions to record ‘Ecotone’, whom the band has worked with in the past. “It was the third time we hit the studios with him and we had a blast. He truly is a genius and he helped us craft the sound we were always looking for. We are very proud of how it sounds and cannot wait to have everyone listen to it.”
‘Ecotone’ hits stores and digital retailers on March 18th through Mediaskare Records.
