Rising Irish Progressive/Crossover force, Restive Nation have, today, release their forth single from their highly anticipated debut LP, due for release on February 25th. 

With such an eclectic broad range of musical influences, Ireland’s Restive Nation have always challenged the mainstream as well as a multitude of sub-genres with their compelling ability to pen music that is not afraid to explore new territories.

Today the band has unveiled one of their heaviest tracks to date. ‘White Ural‘ is a monolithic slab of driving riffs that lay down a frosty landscape for a truly impressive vocal display from Tony Carberry.

Check out the video below:

Speaking of the track, the band commented…

“White Ural is one of the heaviest tracks from Restive Nation, to date. With Tony [Carberry] on vocals, ‘White Ural’ showcases the metal side of what the band can achieve. 

The premise of the songs 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 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 are live now and 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 will officially launch their long-awaited album in Dublin’s Grand Social venue on February 24th, with tickets on sale now, priced at €12 via this link.
