Restive Nation & The White Ural

Ireland’s Restive Nation has been steadily blurring the lines of metal, rock, progressive and electronic music since their inception back in 2014. With a sequence of three single releases last year the band continue to tease the new album with new single ‘White Ural’, from a forthcoming new album, and their first new release of 2022. 

The band adapts a number of influences from Mastodon to Gojira and Enslaved in this latest single, highlighting the heavier, and equally darker side to their eclectic song-wwriting abilities.
“’White Ural’ is one of the heaviest tracks from Restive Nation, to date,” said the band. “With Tony (Carberry) on vocals, ‘White Ural’ showcases the metal side of what the band can achieve. The premise of the song’s lyrics follows the story of a group of hikers that set off on a journey in the Ural Mountains late January 1959. They would meet a gruesome and unexplained death. The bleakness of the story can be felt in the music – It’s cold, grim and extremely tense throughout.”
The bands’ debut full length album will be released on February 25th digitally with a very limited edition run of vinyl pressings to follow later in the year.

Pre-orders for the vinyl album can be accessed via this link.
A select number of pre-orders feature one of an exclusive limited edition 350gsm matte-finish print, taken from a series of eight designs, that will instantly be shipped out prior to the release of the vinyl, later this year.
Restive Nation’s official album launch will be taking place in Dublin’s Grand Social venue on 24th February, with tickets on sale now via this link
