South African progressive quartet DEITY’S MUSE have released new single ‘Sleep/Escape’ ahead of their UK tour with Monuments and appearance at UK Tech Fest.

Commenting on the single, guitarist / vocalist Wayne Boucher said: “This track is very dream-like in its sonic delivery with its spacey, open beginning but it explodes with some big, chugging riffs followed by one of our most melodic choruses. The lyrics speak of a protagonist who is grappling with a tough situation until an epiphany arrives to him one night in the form of a dream. The emotions are very high on this one and I feel like Sleep / Escape is musically loaded with dynamics.”
Released 28th May, Lungs Full is three tracks of gritty riffs and intricate rhythms, over-laced with an atmospheric veil of Wayne’s stunning vocals and hauntingly luscious guitar melodies. The EP is the band’s first release since their critically acclaimed third full-length Convergence (2016).
This July the band head to the UK to open for UK Tech Metal pioneers Monuments, play UK Tech Fest and play a one-off headline show in London. Wayne continues: “We’ve been big fans of the music the Monuments guys make for a long time now. We’re really excited about joining them as main support on their UK summer tour with our new EP, Lungs Full. Similarly we’re stoked about seeing the Monuments lads performing tracks from Phronesis live. We’ll also be making our first appearance at TechFest and what an incredible line-up that is! To top it off, we’re lucky enough to have secured our own headliner show in London to close off the tour. Getting opportunities like this as a band based on the tip of Africa is really something quite special to us and we can’t wait to show the UK crowds what we’re about.”
