NORTHLANE will drop “Mirror’s Edge” on April 12. The EP was recorded with their old friend and revered producer Will Putney. Described by Jon Deiley (songwriter/guitarist) as “the greatest hits of NORTHLANE sounds,” the EP is a nostalgic journey through all the colors on their sonic palette, with bonus shades from special guests Winston McCall (PARKWAY DRIVE) and Ian Kenny (KARNIVOOL, BIRDS OF TOKYO) — two of the most influential artists in NORTHLANE‘s history. Their former bass player, Brendon Padjasekalso stopped by the studio to lend his scream to one of the tracks.

Penned just over a year after the release of their award-winning album “Obsidian”the road to “Mirror’s Edge” was a bumpy one. Instead of riding high from the success of the album, the simmering tension and communication breakdown between band members threatened to engulf NORTHLANE at any moment. NORTHLANE tackled their issues head-on at a writing retreat in Victoria’s Yarra Valley, where they worked through their problems and unlocked new channels of creativity in the process that reflects through the EP.

From the expansive program of “Afterimage” to their signature bottom-heavy groove and viscous breakdown of “Kraft” and compulsive beat and electronic focus of “Dante”, “Mirror’s Edge” is full of NORTHLANE‘s most vivid colors and textures. Thematically, the EP is about looking at yourself and reflecting on the past one final time before leaving it all behind to find hope in what lies beyond the mirror’s edge. With the usual theme of acceptance binding these songs together, frontman Marcus Bridge it is hopeful that “Mirror’s Edge” will be the coda on this part of his personal life, so much of which he has shared in the last couple of NORTHLANE releases.

NORTHLANE is a chart-topping, award-winning metal band from Sydney, Australia. Through fearless evolution and unmatched innovation, NORTHLANE have become vanguards of heavy music across the globe, entirely on their own terms. The band have released six acclaimed albums, including ARIA chart No. 1 records “Obsidian” (2022) and “Do not give” (2015),alongside “Singularity” (2013),“Mesmer” (2017) and “Alien” (2019) which all debuted at No. 3.
