New single Cliffs Edge pushes the boundaries of what we thought was possible for Restive Nation, as they weave a dark and twisted path of sublime magnificence that is literally dripping with a sense of Tool and suggestions of John Carpenter here and there.
Whatever lies ahead for Restive Nation, is shrouded with unpredictability, which is exactly what they want you to feel. The band’s short history has delivered three vastly different compositions, with three different vocalists, creating an almost multifaceted beast that picks and chooses what genre to manipulate and reinvent.

‘Cliffs Edge’ much like it’s predecessors, features a guest vocalist. John Murphy aka Atmahead takes the reins as he leads the listener down a dark and twisted wormhole. John’s penchant for the spoken word form blends well with Restive Nation’s progressive tendencies.
The track itself is a departure from the group’s previous ethereal and ambient releases with its amalgamation of both prog and industrial genres, tied together by the unique and intense vocal styling of Atmahead.
Cliff’s Edge is available now for download on this link and streaming worldwide.
