RESOLVE sign to Arising Empire!
Written by Atomic Newsroom on 19 April 2021
Dipping your toes before jumping in at the deep end is something that will reward you in more ways than you realise. Those extra hours spent wondering, “what if?” will all be worth it when you figure out the best way to make it a reality rather than pushing too soon and being left to wonder, “what if we had done this differently?”
RESOLVE are a band that have been savouring every second of their journey so far and biding their time – observing, learning, building – and making sure that every single aspect of how they’ve wanted the band to function was fully realised before delivering it to the world. But now is their time to show you what they have been working on, and it is quite the spectacle.
“Little did we know when writing this line, nearly two years ago now, that we were somehow forecasting the shape of the world in 2021. Back then, we were feeling like little sailors who had just embarked on a journey that’s bigger than themselves, that journey being the writing of our debut album.
But today, it feels like everybody’s lost at sea. Our world has been shattered by an invisible monster, and we’re just drifting away, slowly but surely gathering our strengths to face a still uncertain future. ‘Seasick Sailor’ is a story that can probably speak to anyone at some point in their life, and especially now. When life feels like an insurmountable ocean, do you take a deep breathe and dive, or do you turn round? “
Starting their journey back in 2016 after their previous projects parted ways and their intentions set on this being their forever band, vocalist AnthonyDiliberto, bassist RobinMariat and drummer NathanMariat have spent the last half a decade tinkering with the formula that feels the most suited to them. Making their first mark in 2017 with debut EP »Reverie« before following with standalone single ‘Carmela’ in 2018, it wasn’t until 2019 that they felt truly at home in their sound.
That was in the form of ‘Pendulum’, a collection of three songs that not only represented the beautifully bludgeoning and densely expansive sound that was resting in the back of their heads but that also found them appearing on Spotify’s New Core, New Metal Tracks and Kickass Metal playlists.
