Erra have shared a new song, “Orchid,” from the Birmingham, Ala. based band’s forthcoming album, Drift (April 8, Sumerian Records). The 10-song album follows the band’s 2013 album Augment, which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Album Chart. Drift was recorded with producer Nick Sampson in late 2015.
The album features new vocalist JT Cavey (Texas in July). Of the line-up change, vocalist/guitarist Jesse Cash said, “It was extremely stressful and difficult. Ian’s a very good friend of ours. He knew the limitations of his voice though, and understood why the band had to make the necessary change. The departure was an amicable one.”
