Brisbane Progressive-Metal Veterans Unveil ‘Jungles’ Live Music Video
Brisbane’s Progressive Metal Powerhouse The Stranger unveil the live music video for ‘Jungles’ via Octane Records & Wild Thing Records. Taken from their highly acclaimed album ‘Kaleidoscope’, ‘Jungles’ is a multi-layered, complex in its construction, varied and dramatic track that warrants multiple listens.
Capturing an energetic live performance peppered with backstage antics their evergrowing fanbase will be treated to ferocious riffs, infectious melodies and a propelling rhythm section wrapped in a high-quality production package! With the release of their Blue Sky Coffee ‘Jungles’ blend, The Stranger have your Prog-Metal and caffeine needs covered.
Bassist Linc Morse speaks “Jungles’ has a special place in our hearts. Not only was it the first song to be written from Kaleidoscope but it was the first song with the current lineup. Originally we wanted to release a version of it as a live music video as the 3rd single from Kaleidoscope, but due to 99% of our shows being cancelled or postponed, we had no chance to shoot the extra footage we needed to complete the video. Fast forward almost 2 years since the first footage was taken and we can finally deliver our vision. Paired with our exciting signature coffee collaboration with Blue Sky Coffee and an equally exciting shirt run (revealed soon), Jungles, now the 4th single from the album, is complete”
Incorporating influences such as Opeth and Dream Theater, the band has forged a respected name for themselves in the Australian Metal Scene with their eclectic mix of progressive metal, djent & funk and performed alongside COG, Caligula’s Horse, Voyager, Ne Obliviscaris, Monuments, and The Ocean. Coming off a successful release of their sophomore album ‘Kaleidoscope’ which charted at #4 on 100% Independent Albums and #10 Independent Label Albums as well as garnering global coverage, The Stranger are the epitome of hard-working virtuosic musicians who are here to prove that even a global pandemic won’t stop them!
