Vexes are a new post-metal group formed from the ashes of several easy-coast wrecking crews, most notably the Pennsylvania metalcore band A Life Once Lost and the New Jersey alt-rock outfit Vessl. After releasing their debut single "Lift" late last month, the four-piece — which comprises frontman Charlie Berezansky, guitarist John Klagholz, drummer Justin Graves, and bassist Bobby Carpenter — are gearing up to release their debut album, Ancient Geometry, on February 23rd. In the meantime, Vexes have linked up with Revolver to premiere the album's spaced-out new single, "Plasticine." Fans of Deftones, the Ocean, and the Contortionist won't want to miss out on this one: Listen now, and scroll down to view the album artwork and track-listing. Pre-order Ancient Geometry here.
"'Plasticine' sums up what I love so much about this band," Berezansky explains. "The fusion of something heavy and hypnotic with these sort of ambient ethereal melodies. On 'Plasticine,' I'm reflecting on a battle with, and eventual acceptance of, someone harmful in my life. To me, the song is not only about the eventual submittal to something that you know is damaging, but falling in love with it."
