UNREQVITED announce new US shows

UNREQVITED will join HARAKIRI FOR THE SKY
and GHOST BATH on US-tour this Fall

Canadian blackgaze project UNREQVITED has been announced as opening act for the highly anticipated “Autumn Asylum” US-tour of HARAKIRI FOR THE SKY and GHOST BATH this October and November. Please see below for a list of all confirmed dates.

 comments: “I am absolutely ecstatic to be joining forces with two of my favorite bands in the genre, Ghost Bath, and Harakiri for the Sky, for the Autumn Asylum tour”, the band’s mastermind enthuses. “Unreqvited has been a wonderful personal outlet for me over the years to express myself freely and honestly by doing everything on my own within the confines of my bedroom. I never planned on taking it out on the road (or even outside of my bedroom), but I think that the time is finally right for me to do so. I can hardly wait to meet and perform for all of the wonderful fans that have been consuming the art that I’ve been creating these past 6 years.”

Victor Forest – guitar
Robin Parsons – bass
Alec Curren – drums
鬼 – vocals, guitar
 
Regarding his live-up,  adds: “Victor, Robin and I have toured together in previous bands and we are to this day still very close friends”, he writes. “Robin and I also have a music project called ‘Write Home’, and we have lived together for over half a decade. It was a no-brainer that they would both come along with me for this tour, since they’re both fantastic musicians. Alec has played in multiple local bands around Ottawa, and has also been a good friend of ours throughout the years. We’ve played together in the past, although it was very briefly. He’s a fantastic drummer, so naturally he was my first choice for the Unreqvited live band!”

Pop music basically has one universal topic: love. Although the theme is presented in many variants about love being desired, lost love, the act of loving and so on, pop is generally all about love. This constitutes probably the main reason why metal bands generally shy away from that subject – as their musical genre defines itself partly as the very antithesis to all things pop. This rule of thumb applies the more, the darker a particular subgenre presents itself.
 
With his sixth UNREQVITED album, “Beautiful Ghosts” driving force and sole member 鬼 has set out to fearlessly explore this for metal-heads rather “scary” emotion. “Inspired by a muse, there are strong themes of love, passion, and devotion on this record”, explains the multi-instrumentalist. “My overall vision was to capture and document my experience with the unique feeling of infatuation and attachment.”
 
As a result of journeying into his mind and collecting a wide range of emotions, 鬼 has included many lighter and more uplifting passages than previously on “Beautiful Ghosts”. Yet the listener will also find the expected dark twists as the composer is balancing his score by occasionally pitting lonely cynicism against romantic naivety. New elements include a significant use of clean vocals throughout the album and there are even playfully progressive rhythms as in the opening track ‘All Is Lost’. The core elements that have shaped UNREQVITED in the past remain active as well. Thus the massive anthemic refrains from “Mosaic I: L’amour Et L’ardeur” (2018) are equally present as the simple melancholic melodies from the 2016 debut album “Disquiet” and the orchestral grandeur of “Empathica” (2020). 
                         
Ever since 鬼 conceived UNREQVITED as a special musical vehicle for his multi-faceted creative output and brought it to light in 2016, his project has been a constantly shape-shifting and stylistically wide roaming creature. With “Beautiful Ghosts”, the Canadian is at the same time gathering the strands of his previous works and taking an innovative step forward that makes it even harder to pin just one label onto his sound. “Beautiful Ghosts” applies a rich palette of musical colours, hues, and shades that are passionately blended together by the theme of “love”.
