It’s a track that has been doing the live rounds for a few years now, but Karnivool have now decided to give The Refusal the respect it deserves. Last night, the band premiered the song via triple j and today, it’s available for all to hear…and download.
The band have been performing the song since announcing it back in 2011 as they began to fade out of the album cycle for 2009’s Sound Awake. Last night was, however, the first time the track has been serviced to radio. The band had recently broken their studio silence to announce they were currently putting the final touches on tracks with 4 out of 6 tracks done and dusted.
The band keep their cards close to their chest so there isn’t too much information available on when we will hear the other complete tracks, or the whole thing for that matter. The prog giants are tasked with the duty of following up a massive sophomore release, Sound Awake, which took the world of prog by the throat and shook it.
You can download Karnivool’s The Refusal here. Surely there’s more to come on the horizon.
