Prolific metalcore progressives ERRA are pleased to announce their new album. CURE arrives on April 5 via UNFD. Pre-order it here.
CURE is the band’s sixth album and it highlights and expands on the forward-thinking sound and guitar-driven style that the band has built its reputation on. Following 2021’s self-titled release, CURE is a stunning execution of both raw talent and surgical technicality. It’s as emotional powerful as it is musically proficient, which is not an easy feat to achieve. Yet ERRA make it look and sound easy. CURE is a sonic thrill ride — one that you hope will never end.
Today, the band has shared the video for the title track. Watch it here.
The song serves up plate-shifting grooves with intricate guitar work and alternately sung and screamed vocals that ooze with ominous tones.
“‘Cure’ was one of the last songs we wrote for the records,” says guitarist/vocalist Jesse Cash. “I had this groove riff that I was just so obsessed with, to the point that I wanted to stay with it for the full duration of the song. So even though the song stays in 4/4 for the most part, we’re always staying locked into this dotted sequence of on rhythm guitars and kick, making the rhythm feel complex yet easy to latch onto as a listener. In the final breakdown section, we stay with this dotted sequence, but switch the time signature to 6/8 for a few bars, before reverting back to 4/4 to close out the song. These playful tinkerings with time signature serve as a suitable introduction to the approach we took with grooves throughout the whole record.”
