The Browning Announce New Album “Geist”

Kansas City quartet The Browning – Jonny McBee [vocals, electronics], Brian Moore [guitar], Collin Woroniak [bass], and Cody Stewart [drums] – will release their fourth album Geist through Spinefarm Records on October 26. In advance of the release, the band has shared the new song “Carnage,” featuring Jake Hill. Listen below.

“Our new album Geist is by far our most dynamic sounding record,” said McBee about the new track. “It has the heaviest, and softest music The Browning has ever written. ‘Carnage’ is tip of the hat to the classic sound we have but with a ton of intensity and a feature from Jake Hill. When I wrote this song, the only thing I had in mind was to make it as high energy and hyped as possible.”
Regarding Geist, McBee continued, “My end goal for The Browning is to be industrial-electronic-rock-metal,” said McBee regarding Geist. “For this new album, I knew there needed to be a massive change not just musically for listeners, but for myself. That change had to come from the vocals. I’ve been working on finding the right voice for three years that’s powerful and melodic, but still extremely heavy and emotional. It was a long process, and I documented most of it live on my Twitch channel.”

The Browning Reveal All New Album Details‏

“Isolation is by far the best album THE BROWNING has done yet. It has everything I wanted in it and nothing is missing. It shows how the band has progressed and matured since our last release. So, I cannot wait for the world to hear it.”

THE BROWNING could very well be heavy music’s answer to the Terminator. Whereas everybody’s favorite Arnold Schwarzenegger cyborg hid an exoskeleton under a sheath of skin, the Kansas City quartet-Jonny [vocals, electronics], Cody [drums], Brian [guitar], and Rick [bass]- thinly veil a hard rock edge beneath a casing of skittering electronic dance music, hip-hop grime, metallic brutality, and industrial expanse. That signature style is “back” in a big way on Isolation, their third full-length album and first for Spinefarm Records.

Isolation arrives on June 24 and it’s THE BROWNING’s most ambitious offering to date.

“Over the course of the last three years, rock music is primarily all I’ve listened to,” Jonny explains. “I’ve been ingesting bands like Rammstein, Disturbed, and Three Days Grace. My writing swung towards that. I knew this album was going to have more of a rock vibe. Obviously, there’s still metal, but the scope has expanded. The electronics remain a big part of it. Since day one, the whole point was to not only be the heaviest electronic band, but the band with by far the most electronics.”

He furthered, “Isolation is by far the best album THE BROWNING has done yet. It has everything I wanted in it and nothing is missing. It shows how the band has progressed and matured since our last release. So, I cannot wait for the world to hear it.”

The first track “Pure Evil” is available with pre-orders.
